Everything that rests in gutters also goes down into the soil and in sewers that dump water into soil or other bodies of water, and the effects can both be positive and negative. Substances such as phosphate can travel with the runoff water into areas with soil and grass, causing it to grow faster. While some people may think fast growing grass is helpful, lets not forget about the rest of the environment the phosphate can effect. Certain algae’s can be harmful to humans when ingested. After knowing that, people should realize that it is time for environmental management to co... ... middle of paper ... ...ls are not very suitable for drinking water but they could be suitable for plants and animals to live with.
With the encroachment of human development comes the destruction of wilderness areas, something that is commonly known to contribute to a wide variety of environmental problems. Automobiles are also a major part of sprawl, contributing to the depleting supply of global oil and the addition of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Noticing these negative effects, some communities around the country and the world are taking measures to reduce their city’s sprawl, ultimately saving the environment. History and Description of Urban Sprawl The roots of the suburbs and can be seen in thousands of years ago in Ancient Rome, where the city was incredibly crowded and dense inside the city walls. It had the population of presen... ... middle of paper ... ...ars of Urban Growth."
Dumping the waste materials on the ground could lead to ground poisoning. Ground poisoning occurs when the ground is regularly in contact with poisonous materials, leading to the ground water being polluted and the land losing its fertility, causing great damage to the ecosystem. Loss of fertility in land can lead to drought. The methane gas produce by the decomposing piles of garbage causes air pollution. Apart from pollution, there is depletion of natural resources because raw materials are constantly being used to produce new products rather than being reused.
Many would argue, yes it is. With overpopulation comes: the exceeding amounts of new cars on the freeways, more food being bought, increase oil use, etc. Which in return has an affect on our air quality, on our supply of food and energy, and affects our oil and gas usage; which many have projected will one day run out. All of these make overpopulation a key problem because they all have the potential to run out and also put harm onto the environment. The environment is threated because of the overuse of its resources and by the pollution caused by humans.

The combination of a narrow economic base rooted heavily in automobile manufacture and stark racial division between the inner city and the suburbs has underpinned the current crisis facing the city. However, the abandonment of such large areas of its inner city has opened up opportunities for artists and entrepreneurial urban agriculture projects to make productive use of these spaces (Barrett and Hall, 2012). If one would look into the history of Detroit, it would be inevitable to ignore Detroit as an icon for the modern world. Yet, Detroit has now become a symbol of the curse of the modern world’s metropoles. The inner city of Detroit is shrinking, while the suburbs keep growing.
