Sam D. Hamilton announces “Medications that are flushed down the toilet or thrown straight into the garbage can and do find their way into our nation’s waterways every day. Those drugs are present in water that supports many species of fish and other wildlife,” said Sam D. Hamilton, Southeastern Regional Director, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “We are concerned about reports of fish abnormalities possibly caused by improperly disposed prescription medications. That’s why we are excited about this new partnership with the Association and its ability to educate the public about simple things they can do to clean up our waters and help prevent fish, and people, from inadvertent exposure to prescription medication.” Mar 17, 2007 photo by Tom MacKenzie
