Facts about water pollution - Te Taiao O Tamaki

Here is some interesting facts about the water pollution.

Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. Lakes, Rivers, Oceans, Aquifers, and groundwater). This form of environmental degradation occurs when pollutants are directly or in
directly discharged into water bodies without adequate treatment to remove harmful compounds.

In New Zealand our waters are starting to get polluted by different reason of how and I am going to tell you dose reasons. Littering is starting to cause water pollution, how littering is causing water pollution is that when ever someone drops a piece of rubbish they might think that their piece of rubbish is just going to stay in one place but they are wrong, the wind is going to blow that piece of rubbish threw the alley and other things that leads to the ocean, creeks, lakes, rivers and any sort of river that has living animals in it.

The rubbish that was dragged into the different oceans sinks down below the sea or it floats above the water and when sea creatures swim around that piece of rubbish they would think that the rubbish is some sort of sea food or their food, so then the fishes eat the rubbish and then they choke on the plastic and become dead. Once sea creatures are dead most of them float above the water and then they stink the whole area.

And the other reason is because a few statistics illustrate the scale of the problem that waste water ( Chemicals washed down the drains and discharged from factories) cancause. Around half of all ocean pollution is caused by sewage and waste water ....... Virtually everyone pours chemicals of one sort or another down their drains or toilets.

So can you please try help us to save our water from being polluted??
