|Water Pollution | Paragraph|
Water is polluted in a variety of ways. Men pollute water by discarding into it domestic and industrial wastes, human waste and filth, poisonous chemicals and corrosives. Chemical fertilizers and insecticides are used in the fields by the farmers. Rain and floods wash away some of these chemicals and mix them with the water of rivers, ponds and canals. Besides these, mills and factories throw their wastes into rivers and canals and pollute water. Boats, steamers, and launches throw oil, food and human waste into the water of rivers and canals. Oil tankers often clean out their tanks at sea and powerhouses release hot water into rivers which kills fish and plants. A lot of latrines are built on the banks of rivers and canals. A number of ‘kutcha’ drains run into rivers and canals, which carry human waste and filth and let them fall into the water. We can minimize water pollution through proper management of waste. People should also be made aware of the ways and means to keep water pure and clean and not polluted.
