"Report: Pollutants in D.C. Area Drinking Water"

"A nonprofit organization that monitors the health of the Potomac River said Wednesday that a condition causing abnormalities in fish should serve as an urgent warning to rehabilitate the waterway that provides 90 percent of the D.C. area's drinking water.

The Potomac Conservancy in its third annual State of the Nation's River report highlighted a number of pollutants in the Potomac River that disrupt the endocrine system in humans and in fish and contribute to a condition in which some fish exhibit both male and female traits."
