Disturbing much? Five containers full of biohazard materials that were not properly disposed were found on a sand bar in the Arkansas River in Oklahoma last week. How does this happen?
Usually, testing facilities and hospitals contract private companies to properly dispose of the materials. These materials are still being tracked back to the source, which is possible because some of the vials and syringes still have patient information on them.
We already have so many things to worry about in our water: chemical contamination, oil contamination, and so many other things. And yet, we still have to worry about this kind of thing happening?! That's disgusting to me.
Thankfully, I think this company will be prosecuted. This was discovered, and will be traced back to the generator (who made it). The ODEQ (Oklahoma's EPA) will deliver a righteous punishment on whoever did it, I hope!
