The argument above assumes that
From 1983 to 1993, millions of gallons of liquid waste from commercial manufacturing plants were dumped into inland waterways. There is increasing apprehension that the liquid waste will leak contaminants into local water supplies. That apprehension is unwarranted, as tests of the local water supplies of regions near commercial manufacturers who practiced such dumping during the 1960s showed little or no evidence of such contaminants.
