  • Water pollution is an appalling problem, powerful enough to lead the world on a path of destruction. Water is an easy solvent, enabling most pollutants to dissolve in it easily and contaminate it. The most basic effect of water pollution is directly suffered by the organisms and vegetation that survive in water, including amphibians. On a human level, several people die each day due to consumption of polluted and infected water.

    Water pollutant:

    1. Industrial waste
    2. Sewage and waste water
    3. Mining activities
    4. Marine dumping
    5. Accidental Oil leakage:
    6. Burning of fossil fuels
    7. Chemical fertilizers and pesticides
    8. Leakage from sewer lines
    9. Radioactive waste
