Wikipedia says: PVA is nontoxic. It biodegrades slowly, and solutions containing up to 5% PVA are nontoxic to fish.

 

My doubt is, if I have made my print completely with PVA and dissolve it in a public water body, is that toxic

    As far as I know PVA is considered for being used with drug capsules in future...

    Thanks for the information. Though I could not draw proper conclusions, it was helpful

    By mistake a print made of PVA has fallen into a water body in a park. I was worried if it pollutes the water

    Anyway, no one consumes that water.
