Don't Flush Pharmaceuticals: Collection Available Saturday

A coalition of groups and the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District this Saturday, April 18th, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. is hosting four regional collection sites that will help keep pharmaceuticals out of our water supply.

Drugs that are poured down the drain or flushed end up in Lake Michigan, which provides drinking water to the lakefront counties and other communities; residents there don't want trace amounts of your Viagra, vicodin, birth control pills or other drugs in the water supply.

Details on the collection are here, and some additional background, here.
