Fish, plants, water and other organisms are living in our ecosystems. This type of pollution is not only harming them now, but will continue to harm them in the future. There are many ways how water pollution is harming our ecosystem, whether it is oil spills, marine dumping, nuclear waste, or atmospheric pollution, it is all harming water. Underground storage leakages play a role, yes, they are useful in many ways, but they are also very harmful. “Over time the steel corrodes and causes leakages, affecting soil and groundwater” (“Underground Storage Leakages” 1).

This essay will focus on chemical pollution in great detail, as it is the main biggest pollutant of our water. Water Pollution is an ongoing problem that has serious affects; it’s impacts grow everyday in our lakes, oceans, rivers and other bodies of water. Chemical water pollution affects us all, the environment, water, us humans & all natural species. We all together as a community need to adapt & prevent the water & earth from further pollution & make this earth & its environment a better place for the future generations for them to live a healthy life with clean fresh water for them to live on. The impacts of water pollution can be seen globally as well as Canada
Often times unwanted chemicals and human waste are dumped into bodies of water, which in turn, damage the wildlife that inhabits these waters. This is called marine pollution. Marine pollution is when unwanted substances are released into bodies of water at a damaging rate to the environment (“Water”). Water is a vital source for all inhabitants of planet Earth. Not only is water a source for
The natural environment of the planet Earth has negatively been compromised over time due to the existence of human beings. In his 2006 documentary titled "An Inconvenient Truth", Al Gore stated "The voluminous evidence now strongly suggest that unless we act boldly and quickly to deal with the underlying causes of global warming, our world will undergo a string of terrible catastrophes". Water pollution and global climate change have already caused terrifying levels of damage to the environment and people alike. In order to be able to recover from the current environmental situations that humans face, the global world community must unite and work as one. For instance, water pollution is a very serious issue that currently affects the planet.
This increasing need of water in a time where there is not enough water has destroyed many rivers like the Colorado River and caused major damage to areas such as the Delta. Because of this, many crops have become mostly dependent on ground water which when over pumped, damages the environment. A fairly new idea that could completely change the situation that California is in is desalination. This process creates fresh water by removing the salt in the water. I think that desalination, when done correctly, is the answer ... ... middle of paper ... ...Aquapedia.
