Water pollution is a global plague that affects the people, animals, and plants. These life forms need water to survive. The causes are contributed greatly by the human population. Recently, laws have been passed to protect the precious drinking waters. Although they are in effect, most are ignored or loop holes have been found by major corporations so the can still ?legally? dump harmful waste near water supplies. There are several factors that causes water pollution. One of the reasons that the water pollution problem is so severe is that it is not actually illegal to dump pollutants into water bodies. Sewage, sludge, garbage, and even toxic pollutants are all dumped into the water. Often, governments either do not care or simply look the other way. Across the world, about half of all sewage is dumped into water bodies in its original form.
A water pollution essay needs to highlight the ill effects of contamination that is spreading across our lakes, rivers, seas, and water tanks due to pollution. When we realize that two-thirds of Earth is covered with water, polluting it would literally wipe us out in time unless drastic measures are not taken to curb it. For a long time, pollution was caused by sharing resources like water by animals and humans.
Water is our most precious resource, something every human being needs to survive. Yet today over 1.2 billion people a day on average do not have access to this necessity. Even if they might have this access, the chances are good that the water is polluted with many contaminants. In the future, we will probably find that clean water will go to the highest bidder, and even more people will find themselves without easy access to clean water.
The environment in Butler County continues to grow everyday with people and living things. As our community grows, the need for water conservation is high.
People use water for baths (the average person spends about five minutes in the shower), to cook food, to wash there hands, to drink, to water plants, some people use water to fill up pools, wash cars, wash cloths (it takes about thirty-three gallons for a washing machine), and to wash dishes. I think the people in this community would save if the daily use of water for plants and the smaller items were cut down. The average use for water a month is 820 gallons.
