Thirty-two million pounds of toxic waste dumped into Ohio River each year: Should companies be required to reveal how much of each chemical they release into waterways?

Thirty-two million pounds of toxic waste dumped into Ohio River each year: Should companies be required to reveal how much of each chemical they release into waterways?
  • Yes, companies should be accountable for their actions.

    If companies are dumping toxic chemicals into the waterways, then they should be required to disclose it. This issue here isn't truly disclosure as much as it is the allowance of the disposal of toxic chemicals into the environment which is what should not be allowed at all. If, however, it is done either by accident or on purpose, then full disclosure is the only appropriate action before recompense.
    The dumping of any toxic materials is harmful to people, animals, and the environment and should be addressed with zero tolerance.

  • Why don't companies report chemical waste dumping?

    Yes, companies should be required to reveal how much of each chemical they release into waterways. I was under the impression that they did this already. There is no reason for companies to be allowed to randomly dump waste into waterways without reporting and meeting restrictions and guidelines set out by a governing body. This is insane!

  • Yes they should reveal how much toxic waste they dump so they can be monitored more carefully.

    If companies were required by law to reveal how much toxic waste they dump into waterways, steps could be taken to make them accountable for subsequent clean-up operations. By making it more costly to dump in this way, they might also consider ways of getting rid of waste that are less harmful to the environment.

  • Yes, companies should be required to disclose each chemical released into waterways.

    Companies should be required to reveal each chemical they release into waterways. Water pollution is still a major concern in America. Many American cities do not have adequate clean water for their citizens. Much of this is a result of companies dumping toxic chemicals into rivers and lakes. Every business should disclose to the public exactly what they release into waterways.
