A study was released in April of 2017 where 35 water ways around the country were tested for 719 chemical compounds. What they found was of those 719 compounds, a little more than half or 406 compounds were detected.
The top ten chemicals in this report listed 8 pesticides, and two pharmaceuticals which were caffeine, and metformin ( a drug to tret type-2 diabetes). What is interesting to note is the 719 chemicals tested represents only about 85,000 chemicals currently in production.
