Remove and Stop Water Pollution

How can I prevent the contamination of water?

The contamination of water sources by substances that render the water unfit for use in activities such as drinking, cooking, cleaning, swimming, and other activities is referred to as "water pollution." Chemicals, garbage, bacteria, and parasites are all examples of different types of pollutants. Each and every type of pollution finds its way, sooner or later, into the water supply. It is common practice to dump waste water into freshwater bodies without first putting the water through the necessary purification processes to remove potentially harmful contaminants. People do drink this water, which can result in a variety of diseases that are transmitted by water, such as cholera and typhoid.

Agriculture. Agriculture is one of the world's largest pollutants and utilizes up to 70 percent of the world's freshwater resources, while industry uses only 20 percent. Wheat, maize, rice, cotton, and sugarcane are the five crops that require the most water to produce. Additionally, there are issues with particular kinds of nuts.

Methods for Avoiding the Contamination of Water

1. Please clean up the trash and dispose of it in the appropriate container.

2. If fertilizer ends up on paved surfaces, simply blow or brush it back onto the grass where it


3. Use grass clippings and other yard trash to make mulch or compost.

4. If you want to avoid getting the water on the street, you should wash your vehicle or any outside equipment in an area that has gravel or grass instead.

How do we lessen the amount of pollution in the ocean?

Please take the necessary steps to dispose of trash and plastics properly. Plastics and other recyclable materials should be disposed of in an appropriate manner to prevent them from being dumped into the ocean. This is one of the easiest methods to cut down on the amount of pollution that is released into the ocean. If you are at an outdoor location such as a beach or park, you should throw your trash away in a container that is locked up or take it with you when you leave.
