Nowadays water adulteration have become one of the biggest concern in all around the world. water is not only scarce due to over-exploitation but also messy water there is an important flag.What water pollution actually is? Water pollution is when waste, chemicals, or other particles cause a body of water ( rivers, oceans, lakes) to become harmful to the fish and animals that need the water to survive.
According to UN (WWAP 2003) every day, 2 million tons of sewage and industrial and agricultural wastes are discharged into the world’s water.“Every year, more people perish from unsafe water than from all forms of violence, including war.”
If preventive measures are not taken, this will continue to be very life threatening problem all over the globe. Making people aware of the problem is the first step to solving it, by changing habits and mindset of people. Environmental laws and their implementation at national and international level,e.g at national level; in US there is the 1972 clean water act and 1974 safe drinking water act. As an environmentalist i thought the best way to tackle pollution is through following polluter pays principle.We can work together to clean environment, at individual level and by involving community.
