Thumbs down: Toxic Indiana 

Toxic Indiana

Indiana discharges more toxic discharge into its waterways than any other state — a total of 27 million pounds, according to a new Environment America. The federal 2010 Toxic Release Inventory documented all contiguous states releasing more than 32 million pounds of polluted discharge into the 981-mile Ohio River. Not all chemicals at issue pose direct threat to human health and the TRI releases are not illegal, but the analysis notes that the total release load is growing. Plus, not all sources are required to document their releases.
