During 2021 alone, 81 refineries in the United States that treat waste on-site released 1.6 billion pounds of chlorides, sulfates and other dissolved solids harmful to fish and other aquatic life, the nonprofit Environmental Integrity Project determined in its review of federal data. https://phys.org/news/2023-01-chicago-area-refineries-dump-toxins-lake.html

                  The U.S government should stop this pollution and take correct actions.
