Due to misunderstanding of people towards the environment, the country is getting worse. In fact Honduras is mainly contaminated because of Carbon monoxide from vehicles and Industry , Drains or sewage contaminated sea or rivers,and the squander of important natural resources.

Existing freshwater resources are gradually becoming unavailable due to these activities (Reddy & Lee, 2012). Some of these heavy metals can seriously affect many living species especially humans because of its severe toxicity (Hadi, 2013). But farmers, most especially, are affected by this pollution. Tons of chemical pollutants are being discharged inconsiderably every year on bodies of water by industries of developing countries. This results in the gradual decline of the availability of freshwater resources globally (Reddy & Lee, 2012).
Acid rain falls not only on the land but also on the lakes, rivers and streams, then make a disaster for the ecosystem for the species that live there. In Sweden acid rain made the lakes so acidic and was the reason behind the death of all the fishes there. The pH concentration will change if the lakes or the streams became acidic, and this will unfortunately cause problems for the fish species and its eggs also. At pHs that is lower than 5 the fish's egg can't be hatch and this will cause later a decline in the fish population and later it might be eliminated. If acid rain falls it will also affects the plants that some animals depends on as a source of food and this will also be a reason behind death of many animals populations (internet
The pollution of this ground water is caused by toxic chemicals (fertilisers, pesticides, etc.) that soak through the ground and into the wells and aquifers below the earth’s surface. This contaminates the water thus making it undrinkable and forming the second type of pollution, namely groundwater pollution. As some viruses and bacteria are water born, microbiological pollution is found to be one of the most dangerous types of water pollution as anyone who comes in contact with the contaminated water risks becoming dangerously ill. Majority of the organisms found in water are
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).
1. Introduction Over decade’s water pollution incidents are the most detrimental effects of biosphere, which may cause greenhouse effect, acid rain and unsuitable contamination of drinking water or water quality (P. K. Goel, 2006). Water pollution is the direct or indirect alteration of chemical, physical and biological factors that affect water quality (P. K. Goel, 2006). It is the contamination of water courses such as rivers, ground water, aquifer, lakes, oceans, water pipes and boreholes. Water pollution has been a major problem all over the world which can cause certain diseases and affect the ecological section (F.W Owa, 2014).
This deteriorates water and makes it unsafe for further use. Wastewater released is a complex mixture of many polluting substances such as dyes, which induce color coupled and various other organic substances disrupt the total ecological balance of the receiving water system. Dyes contain high concentration of organic compounds and heavy metals.
By so doing one would have made a huge difference in pollution reduction. One should use water wisely, shouldn’t keep the tap running when not using it. An individual can also reduce the amount of water that is used in washing and bathing. If all this are done it can significantly prevent water shortages and reduce the amount of waste water that needs to be treated. It is advisable that one should not throw chemicals, oils, paints and medicines down the sink drain or the toilet.
Soil is also affected by the overuse of fertilizers and the pesticides, this led to loss of the forest cover, crops in farms and etc. Air pollution is caused and water pollution are caused by terrestrial pollution, in appropriate dumping of garbage have a bad smell and the dust from the building rubbles and the dumped garbage is burned they cause air pollution and the polluted air affect the human health , as the land is contaminated with chemicals and pesticides lad to skin cancer and human respiratory system , also wildlife can be affected as they are threatened regarding to loss of their habitat, food and natural environment . Water pollution is a result of terrestrial pollution as the chemicals and the solid waste dumped near the water are washed by rain in to the river or the stream and lad to pollution of the water. Conclusion Terrestrial pollution is the largest issue in Tembisa that needs to be attended as soon as possible because it does not affect only the polluters but also all the innocent things such as the biotic and the abiotic components of the earth and its natural environment and
Water pollution is water that is not safe and not healthy for people and animals to drink or to wash in. It is particularly dangerous to water plants and animals. Polluted water is also particularly dangerous to people who get their water directly or dam. In South Africa the scarce fresh water is decreasing in quality because of an increase in pollution and the destruction of river catchments, caused by urbanisation, deforestation, damming of rivers, destruction of wetlands, industry, mining, agriculture and accidental water pollution. Water pollution is a major global problem which requires ongoing evaluation, it suggested that it is the leading worldwide causes of deaths and diseases.
