Intro: Water pollution has caused so many problems to our waterways that no one really knows how to help. Water pollution caused; dead zones, oil spills, garbage floating around, and unsafe drinking water. People disagree about water pollution because, people have found ways to improve and help out the problem that water pollution has caused around the world. Others believe that that water pollution has created situations and are in the process of figuring out solutions. Marine life habitats are getting destroyed, marine life is declining everyday, how and where the garbage is getting into the oceans, and the drinking water is becoming seriously unsafe to drink.
Atmospheric pollution is caused by pollutants such as smoke from factories entering the atmosphere and being carried to waterways. Industrial waste can also create polluted runoff that collects in rivers and lakes. Another reason for water pollution is chemically treated sewage. This water carries harmful chemicals and high amounts of bacteria, which can potentially lead to serious diseases. Runoff from fields can contain chemical fertilizers and pesticides which can pollute
Another place where the pollution of water is at the critical point is Sungai Klang where the pollution really affected the community at that place due to the stinky smell that come from the river, the smell that come from the river is caused by the rubbish that block the flow of water. The pollution in Klang also cause the water source not safe for the daily use such as for washing and drinking. Industrial waste come from the industrial, the waste from the industrial such as paper, an example of industry that give impacts to the water is paper industry as it write words, drawing and printing which they used ink. Inside the ink was the ink pigment which the pigment was not soluble in water, by taking example of white ink contain titanium oxide as the pigment. The last factors that contribute to water pollution is the ballast water tank where the ships carried water together with the organism that were placed in the ballast water tank
Over 780 million people are without access to clean drinking water, and around 2.5 billion people do not have access to an adequate sanitation facility (Bradford). There are two primary ways in which water pollution is caused. The first way consists of objects such as trash from a landfill or parts of a boat which have fallen into the water. The other cause is due to fertilizers and other chemicals being spilled into the water ("Pollution"). Once enough pollutants fill the water, it becomes likely for it to become contaminated with dangerous pathogens, which survive on the pollutants and can be dangerous to the wildlife.
As the population on the Earth is continues growth by the year and this give a high pressure to the planet’s of water resources. In a sense, our oceans, rivers, and other inland waters are being squeezed by human activities. They are not taking up the part of water but they cause the quality of water becomes poor. Poorer of water quality means the water pollution. The water pollution in environment can be occurs in different ways.
I believe that polluted oceans can cause both animals and humans to get sick and die. When people pollute, it ends up in the ocean and then people go in the water and get sick. Pollution is not the only thing, plastic is very bad and kills animals. I have seen animals get caught in plastic bags and I have seen animals trying to eat the trash people throw. Imagine trying to relax by walking on the beach and then coming across a dead animal that has plastic wrapped around it, I have seen that and it is very sad.
Each time our waste from our body is flushed down into the toilet, it goes into the septic tank where it is separated into solid from liquid part. All the metabolic and biological processes used to break this parts which usually is drain into a large drainage system but nowadays, most of it goes to the sea. It can even go into the soil and causes plants to die. Sometimes even the atmospheric deposition is also pollution of water. This is because when the air is polluted with all the nitrogen monoxide, carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide and many more it can combine the clouds and come down as acid rain which goes into the
Sisk 1 Kylie Sisk Eng1101 Burns 10/26/14 Water Pollution The world’s biggest health risk continues to enforce both public health and quality of life; that is what we call dirty water or water pollution. Water pollution is a huge problem these days and human activity is the main effect. People need to start taking action in what they do and start protecting our bodies of water. Some people don’t realize when pollution is being caused because they don’t realize what they do every day, causes it. Driving cars, using fertilizers, not cleaning septic tanks, and coal-fired power plants are some examples on what causes water pollution.
It fills lakes and obstructs shipping channels, clogs hydroelectric turbines, and makes drinking water purification costlier. Besides air pollution, there is also water pollution which is also caused by many variants causing more health issues to drinking supplies. Today people oppose this argument by saying that water pollution is easily not harmful to the environment. This is not true because today because many countries have water problems due to low water sources caused by trash and erosion. Water pollution is also another harmful type of pollution that should be cleaned to better the water in the
Water pollution is getting worse and worse nowadays. From plastic bag to harmful substance, things that we produce on land already reaches to the sea, either by deliberate dumpling or run-off through drains and river. For example, oil, toxic and rubbish. Oil that spill into the ocean will poison the organism in the marine. It will also cause the animal to not be able breathe properly under the sea (West, 2017).
