Water is one of the fundamental elements that exist within the aquatic ecosystem. Ideally, clean and plentiful water is the basis for a prosperous community. Most creatures in the general ecosystem rely on water for survival. However, there are some factors that have totally effective changes in the recommended ecosystem balance. This research cites the climatic changes as one of the factors that are threatening the purity and abundance of water in the ecosystem (Geiger 89). In addition, the less water that remains in the system is tainted with pollutants, which makes it hazardous for consumption. This research will base its fact and findings on the causes and the strategies that are used to defend the Clean Water Act, as well as, advocating green infrastructure for the ecosystem. It is important to cite that water is life, hence polluting water means interfering with the normal life cycle.
This research indicates that water pollution is one of the world’s biggest health menaces. Polluted water continually threatens the life of human beings, other living creatures and plants. The threat to these substances is categorized into the level by which it affects the quality of life. Initially, water falls from the skies as precipitation and runs off on the plane of the earth. In this context, water picks the toxic chemicals, trash, and another disease carrying organisms (Geiger 89). The fact that most of the designate water reservoirs are not protected against such harmful substances, human beings end up consuming water that is contaminated. The findings in this research are intended to be support the formulation of the essence of reducing water pollution. However, it is also determined to enhance protection from polluted water.
Scope and findings
In this research, there are major facts about water pollution that have been discussed. Water pollution is mostly as a result of humanly related activities. That is; human oriented water contaminants include the heavy metals, pathogens, nutrients, persistent organic matter and pesticides among other pollutants. In addition, the fact that these are some of the dominant causes of water pollution is that no solutions have been arrived at, to help solve this predicament (Geiger 89). The extent to which these rivers have been polluted goes to the extent of 80%, which means that even the large water vessels are victims of the vast water pollution. Owing to the fact most of the wastes materials are carelessly discharged into the river cause the largest proportion of water pollution. This is one of the scenes that the pollution has been identified to be dominant for ages.
Despite the fact that water pollution is deemed not to have a long-lasting solution, this research tries to establish some of the measures that can enable the level of water pollution to lower. Some of these recommendations include conservation whenever it is possible. Secondly, it is essential to avoid careless depositing of hazardous chemicals towards the river. One way that this can be executed is by using friendly products in order for them to employ safe disposal, as well as recycling of waste products. On the external measures, some of the measures include enforcement and obedience to some of the anti-depositing of by laws. Besides that, it is important to use environmentally friendly chemicals in the farming practices. Ideally, there is the need for water to survive in its real nature; however, these pollution cases become the impediment towards the conservation of the ecosystem. Water cleanliness is a vital environmental requirement.
