Do weed killers pollute our water ways?

    Yes, absolutely. Weed-killers, also known as herbicides, have been implicated heavily in water pollution. What isn’t absorbed is collected in runoff and winds up in creeks, streams, lakes, rivers, and eventually the ocean. There have been documented health problems in seals, manatees,a nd other aquatic animals attributed to herbicidal water pollution.

    Yes they do. When weed killers are used in people’s gardens they drain into the ground. Groundwater pollution is much less obvious than surface-water pollution, but is no less of a problem. In 1996, a study in Iowa in the United States found that over half the state’s groundwater wells were contaminated with weed killers.
