You don't want to discover DEET, nicotine and pharmaceuticals in your drinking water. But after a year-long study by the health department in Granger, Ind., that's exactly what's been found. It's certainly caused concern in the town of just more than 30,000 people, and for good reason.
According to a news story out of South Bend, scientists found traces of Bactrim – an antibiotic used to treat bladder and ear infections and Primidone – medication used to control seizures and depression in the community's water, not to mention high nitrate levels.
