How bad is drug pollution in the Hudson?

"Scientists are taking samples of the Hudson River this month to measure how much pharmaceutical pollution gets washed into the waterway during heavy rains and to pinpoint its source."

"Anti-depressants, blood pressure medicine, decongestants and other medicines have already been detected in the Hudson in preliminary samples. The latest round of testing is a larger sweep of the river at a time of the year when pollution overall is washing into the Hudson at a greater rate due to runoff and sewage overflows."
