In #america 🇺🇸 40% of our #rivers and 46% of our #lakes our too polluted for human uses including #swimming, #fishing, and #aquaticlife. An astonishing 1.2 trillion gallons of sewage from homes and industries are dumped into our water ways every year. You can contact your local #waterprovider to ask for your consumer confidence report to see what they test for, the level of contaminants, and if they have had any #EPA violations. To help the situation be a mindful consumer and remember your trash doesn't just go to the #landfill it leaches into our water. Also, what you use at home that goes down a drain or into the yard eventually finds its way to a water way.
