What is the reason of the water pollution? How the pollution level can be reduced?
Suggest some measures to reduce the pollution of water.
Water pollution indicates that the water is not pure and safe for the health. Today many factors are causing the water pollution. It is very dangerous for health as well as for the environment. The large number of the dead fishes found in Yamuna at Agra proved it. Factories, specially the chemical industries, paper mills, sugar mills, tanneries etc. are causing the water to be polluted. The disposal of sewage of urban areas into the rivers also lead to this pollution.
As for example, the Najafgarh Nala in Delhi may be taken. Water is also being polluted by the use of pesticides and fertilizers in the nearby fields.
To reduce the pollution level, the following steps should be taken:
- The effluents from the factories should not be allowed to fall into the rivers.
- No chemical industry, paper mill, sugar mill should be allowed to stagnate their effluents on land at any cost. So that it do not pollute the underground water through seepage.
- Effluents of the mills and the factories should be scientifically treated and recycled to be used again.
- Sewage should be treated and diverted to irrigate the fields and the wastelands.
- Oil spills from tankers must not be allowed to enter any water form or river. In fact being a little more aware and taking care of otherwise looking small matters, magic can be created. It would surely make the rivers and other water bodies pollution-free. It will also do magic for our environment.
- Glaciers are in solid form.
- Glaciers look like a mountain of ice.
- Glaciers move very slowly.
- The movement of a glacier is not discernible.
