Water Pollution: Causes, Effects, and Solutions
Water pollution can take various forms. Discover its main causes and effects, but also technological solutions and how you can contribute to solve it. What causes water pollution? What are its effects? And what are the possible solutions to prevent water pollution? The Solar Impulse Label is granted to innovative solutions to water pollution that meet high standards of sustainability and profitability. Each solution goes through a strict assessment process performed by independent experts.
Our planet is comprised primarily of water. Aquatic ecosystems cover more than two-thirds of the Earth's surface. And all life on Earth as we know it relies on water to survive. Yet water pollution is a very real threat to our survival. It is considered by most scholars and politicians the world's biggest health risk, threatening not only humans, but also myriad other plants and animals that rely on water to live. According to the World Wildlife Fund:. So what is water pollution?
Of that, only 2. Water quality of streams, lakes, and rivers depends on the sources that feed them. Unfortunately, water pollution is created when fertilizer, animal and human waste, plastics , and toxic industrial chemicals enters these sources. It costs the economy by impacting public health, fishing, tourism, and the environment. Governments try to control the damage by setting water quality standards to regulate usage. Many of our waterways are in poor biological condition. The leading causes are farm runoff and pollution absorbed from the air.
The planet keeps nudging us with increasingly extreme droughts, reminding us that water is life. It is an essential resource upon which all living beings depend and it is crucial to all social and economic development, as well as energy production and adaptation to climate change. Nevertheless, we are now facing a gigantic challenge. How do we stop contaminating our rivers, seas, oceans, canals, lakes and reservoirs? Water pollution is endangering the health of millions of people around the world. The waters of the River Ganges flow clear and clean through the Indian city of Rishikesh at the gateway to the Himalayas.
PDF | Water is one of the most important substances on earth. All plants and animals must have water to survive. If there was no water there.
Water pollution has become a growing concern over the last century as more and more waste is being disposed of in our oceans, rivers, and lakes. This article will provide you with an in-depth explanation of what water pollution is, the causes and effects of water pollution, and what can be done to prevent or even reverse the condition of water pollution. Without proper disposal or filtration of these pollutants, they can spread throughout the water and affect all living animals and organisms that come into contact with it by contaminating any living thing that requires water for survival. In addition to harming animals, water pollution can also affect plants, trees, soil, and other natural materials and earth resources.
We tend to look skywards when talking about pollution, but this problem is not confined to our skies. The soil in which our fruit and vegetables grow is also suffering its consequences, the effects of which getting to us directly, for instance, through the aforementioned foodstuffs. The time has come to look after what lies under our feet! Soil pollution is mostly caused by chemical substances produced by human activity. The soil is the skin of the earth, a mantle full of scars, thousand-year-old wrinkles and more recent injuries caused both by man and nature itself.
Water pollution , the release of substances into subsurface groundwater or into lakes , streams, rivers , estuaries , and oceans to the point where the substances interfere with beneficial use of the water or with the natural functioning of ecosystems. In addition to the release of substances, such as chemicals or microorganisms, water pollution may also include the release of energy , in the form of radioactivity or heat , into bodies of water. Water pollution is the release of substances into bodies of water that makes water unsafe for human use and disrupts aquatic ecosystems. Water pollution can be caused by a plethora of different contaminants, including toxic waste , petroleum , and disease-causing microorganisms.
