Large factories and power plants can cause the temperature of the water around them to rise. This is also extremely dangerous to the fish living in the waters and can cause large populations to die (Bradford). While there are methods to rid water of its contaminates, a more effective way to keep the waters safe might be to reduce the number of
The most serious problem is that it can affect people’s health. Some pollutants exist in the form of water solution. When people drink water, those chemicals enter human’s body easily, and problems may appear. Infectious disease is one of the problems. Virus survived in the polluted water can invade into the body defense system through the drinking process.
Unfortunately our oceans are suffering from many types of pollutants that are prominent in our environment. One of the main distributors of pollution is sewage. Sewage and other polluting substances flow into the world's rivers and drainage pipes until all of the substances dump out into the ocean. In addition to sewage, other chemicals finds its way to the oceans, which leads to the reduction of oxygen being released into the atmosphere. With this in place, the waters become murky and filled with substances that can harm marine life.
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
Among the most important types of water pollution are sediment, trash, and thermal changes such as global warming. Sediment and trash make up the greatest amount of visible type of water pollution in most rivers, lakes, and oceans around the world. Worldwide there is erosion from croplands, forests, and construction sites is estimated to add over 75 billion tons of sediment each year. This sediment smothers gravel beds in which many types of aquatic animals lay their eggs. It fills lakes, and obstructs shipping channels, clogs hydroelectric turbines, and makes drinking water purification costlier.
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.
1. Introduction The pollution of surface water has brought so much frustration over the past years nationally and globally. Surface water pollution occurs when the quality of water degrade to an extent that it becomes uneasy to use due to the entering of harmful substances into the water systems. When surface water is polluted the environment is affected as a whole. Aquatic species such as plants and fish are threatened by poor water conditions (Botkin, D.B., 2014).
Around 70% of China 's rivers and lakes are polluted and they are risky for human contact. Health concerns have been evoked as it has been demonstrated that water contamination causes gsotraintentianl and different sorts of cancers (The Diplomat). There are some
Water pollution is contamination of bodies of water, suspended in the water or depositing. For example, lakes, rivers, and oceans. These toxic substances are harmful for the aquatic ecosystem but these pollutants can find its way into the ground water, which can contaminated water we use every day. There are different kinds of pollutants such as organic, inorganic radioactive etc. First of all, what is clean water?
Water pollution is a major global problem which requires ongoing evaluation and revision of water resource policy at all levels (international down to individual aquifers and wells). It has been suggested that water pollution is the leading worldwide cause of deaths and diseases, and that it accounts for the deaths of more than 14,000 people daily.  An estimated 580 people in India die of water pollution related illness every day.  About 90 percent of the water in the cities of China is polluted.  As of 2007, half a billion Chinese had no access to safe drinking water.
