    The negative environmental impacts of triclosan and triclocarbon were discovered around the turn of the century.  In 1999 and 2000, national stream surveys were conducted that found triclosan in 58% of streams tested.  They were also found in tracts of sewage sludge that were contaminating soil and groundwater.  The two major concerns that have been raised regarding the widespread environmental contamination of triclosan and triclocarban are the promotion of bacterial resistance and hormone disruption in vertebrates.
