"Many people have documented these pollutants in fish in the Great Lakes, but most studies that have been done are more on the western part of Lake Erie and in other lakes," said Diana Aga, University at Buffalo professor and author of the paper. "What we're doing here is to document specifically what's happening in eastern Lake Erie, which is interesting because it can be easily impacted by industries and human activities in the Buffalo area."
Aga pointed out the importance of documenting the current conditions so it can be compared to other areas and future conditions.

Chemist Diana Aga of the State University of New York at Buffalo has made similar observations with liquid manure from swine feedlots in Nebraska.At some stages of the animals' growth, their wastes appear antibiotic-free.Other times, concentrations can run to nearly 1 ppm.
While Aga's preliminary data indicate that the drugs begin breaking down under exposure to sunlight-with reductions of perhaps 50 percent in a week-she notes that at least in Nebraska, livestock producers typically truck their manure offsite quickly.In some cases, she says, "it could be on fields within several days."

The science on antibiotic water contamination doesn't point to an acute health concern, says Diana Aga, assistant professor of Chemistry at the State University of New York at Buffalo.But since long-term health and environmental effects are unknown, the possibility that antibiotic contaminates could contribute to the development of antibiotic-resistant microorganisms is a concern, Aga says.
"We made an inference because the antibiotics (detected) are only used in animals," Aga says of the Sunnyside Feedlots area test wells.She says not many studies have found veterinary-use antibiotics in ground water, so she independently researched the Weiser feedlot area wells that reach depths of 15 to 35 feet.Her research, slated for publication in an upcoming issue of the journal Chemosphere, details her findings."We just repeated the same study as the USGS and found the same results," she says.
"I don't know why it leaks into the groundwater," Aga says of the contaminates linked to Sunnyside Feedlots.
