Water Pollution In Our Planet
Think about all the bodies of water on our planet. Every ocean, river, lake, and stream, is important to the way our world functions. Unfortunately, our society has done very little to preserve these water sources and as a result, our rivers, lakes, streams, and oceans are suffering from many forms of pollution. Every oil spill, discarded water bottle, and contaminated sewer continually add to our already-polluted waters, and very little is being done to fix this problem. The biggest issue being studied today is storm water runoff. The collection of sediments, chemicals, and debris, are a serious pollution concern. Many solutions and technologies have already been developed, but storm water run-off regulations, which are basic guidelines that all states follow when constructing storm drains and other run-off structures, limit the actions needed to reduce the run-off pollution. In order to fix the mess our society has made with urbanization and waterway pollution, storm water regulations must be changed to allow for new solutions and technologies that deal with sediment pollution and storm water run-off.
Every household needs water because it is a basic necessity. We use it for laundry, cooking, lawns and plants, personal hygiene, drinking, dishes, and so on. For this very reason, we need to make sure that the water we use is of good quality. The contamination of water sources affects all aspects of life from heath care to limitations of commercial water use. If we used the same murky water for cleaning as we do for drinking, then our health would be in very bad shape, causing a large chain of disastrous events such as illnesses and disease outbreaks. The government puts a lot of emphasis on maintaining the cleanliness of commercial water. There are hundreds of regulations regarding the use and treatment of commercial water sources, but for some apparent reason, water pollution is still a big issue....
