That is into rivers, the sea or straight to a recycling/purifying plant where they are filtered into drinking water. The problem seems obvious doesn’t it? The Oestrogen and other hormones expelled into the water system are recycled and end up being consumed by more people, then they are once again expelled into the water system where they join yet more hormones from the same process and the concentration in our drinking water slowly increases.
