How Rivers Pollutions & Water Resources get Polluted?

Water pollutions produced when a water stream, river, seas, water, or other body of water. Which degrades the quality of the water and makes it toxic for man. The environment pollutes by harmful substances, often chemical substances or micro-organisms. Once upon a time, British poet W. H Auden pointed out, "Thousands lived without love, not one without water." However, while we all know that water is vital to life, we still bash it. About 80% of the world's wastewater largely untreated being disposed of back into the environment, polluting rivers, lakes, and oceans.

Our health threatened by this widespread problem of water pollutions. Uncertain water kills each year more people than war and combines all other forms of violence. Our drinking water sources are finite in the meantime: We can actually access less than 1% of the freshwater on the earth. Without action, the demand projected to rise to just one-third of the world's demand for fresh waters by 2050.

Things you can do to prevent water pollutions are:

Do NOT put cooking fat or any other fat, oil, or fat into a sink. Keep a "fat jar" below the sink to collect the material fat and throw it away from solid waste.

DO NOT remove household chemicals or purifiers from the dish or toilet.

DO NOT flow toilets with flush pills, medicines with liquid or powder, or drugs.

Avoid using the bathroom for the rubbish. The waste cup should properly discard most tissues, packings, dust cloths, and other paper goods. Never should be discarded in the toilet the fiber-enhanced cleaning products which have become popular.

Do not use disposal of garbage. Maintain solid waste. Make a vegetable scrap compost stack.

Install a toilet that works well with water. Meanwhile, put the standard toilet tank with a brick or 1/2 gal container to decrease water usage by flush.

Only run the washing machine or the washing machine when you fully charged. Electricity and water can preserved.

When you are washing clothes or dishes, use a minimum amount of detergent and/or bleach. Use only soaps and detergents free of phosphate.

The use of pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers should be minimized. DO NOT dispose of in-sanitary sewers or storm sewage systems of these chemicals, motor oils, and other automotive fluids. They both end up on the river.

Make sure that the house does not drain into a sanitary sewer system if there is a pump or cellar drain.
