Water systems never want prescription drugs flushed into them. To help prevent this, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency is having a National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Oct. 26. Operators should always assist in promoting ways that can facilitate any water quality improvements. Below is a link to more detail about this event.
