In August, researchers from New York’s Cary Institute of Ecosystem Science, among others, released their study of pharmaceutical chemicals found in Baltimore’s Gwynns Falls watershed. After sampling six different points along the river weekly for a year, the researchers found traces of 37 different pharmaceutical drugs in the water, including antidepressants, antibiotics and painkillers. The New York-based researchers were helped along the way by water samplers at the Baltimore Ecosystem Study, a lab based at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
