THOUSANDS HAVE LIVE WITHOUT LOVE, NOT ONE WITHOUT WATER- W. H. Auden.
As we know about 71 % of the Earth’s surface is water-covered, & the oceans hold about 96.5 % of all Earth’s water. Water also exists in the air as water vapour, in rivers and lakes, in icecaps and glaciers, in the ground as soil moisture and in aquifers, and even in us. Hence, to conserve the water is very important. River pollution is a major global environmental problem because it’s resulting in the degradation of aquatic ecosystem. River pollution is a serious environmental issue. River is said to be polluted if it’s physical, biological, & chemical properties are deteriorated via anthropogenic & natural activities. River pollution has affected the lives of Humans & Animals in all aspects. While there are many things that need to be done in order to protect the environment, one highly important method of maintaining the health of the environment is to reduce water pollution. While many of the solutions for river pollution need to be applied on a broader macro-level, some of the simple solutions are as follows:
- Wastewater treatment
- Plastic waste reduction
- Green agriculture
- Storm water management
- Reuse items
- Capture & filter sediment laden water in waterways
- Capture & dispose of floating pollution in waterways
- Protect curb inlets & drains
- Install a water-efficient toilet in your home
- Water conservation etc.
