One quart of oil can contaminate 2 millions gallons of water
Did you know a quart of oil can contaminate 2 millions gallons of water? On a smaller scale and for metric talkin' folks, a single drop of oil can pollute 2 liters of water. Other chemicals can directly poison fish and plants and trash can clog up stormwater drains, causing flooding.
