Water pollution
Apr 4, 2003

Canada is sometimes called “water-rich” nation. It holds 9% of the world’s renewable fresh water supply. It has the longest ocenas coastlines, and is the second largest continental shelf along the coast .Canada uses alot of water in their day to day lives. Even though it seems like we have alot of water supply ,pollution still remains an important problem in some of our water. In some areas, people can’t swim or eat the fish they catch.
Water pollution has wider impacts in our environment, economy, and health. Even some toxic suvstances is known to cause cancer.Geatest health risk is to small children, elderly, and to Aboriginalsa in the north because they rely on local wildlife as a source of food. Toxic substances and acid rain often causes damage to our environment. Already, acid rain has threaten 15 000 lakes and forests in eastern Canada .Canada’s freshwater and marine areas is affected by 3 important water pollution problems. they are excess nutrients, sedimentation and toxic substances.
Onbe way we can prevent water pollutions is conserving it. Conserving watwe saves not only the cost of producing drinking water, but also the cost of wastewater treatment. Water conservation saves energy and prevents pollution. Other way is don’t dump toxic materials into water.We can try to remove the pollutants before the water gets back into the environment.

Water pollution is indeed a serious problem for the whole world. Living creatures that live in water are endangered. Water pollution triggers the death of living beings. It is caused by deterioration of the natural balance. Water is a unique substance. We rely on clean water to survive.

Re: Water pollution

It is unfortunate that natural resources we think is surplus is actually not and we are losing our water to pollution ranging from oil companies activities and wasteful nature of some people who think the water can not finish. Apart from the impact on humans like lack of sea food and lost of livelihood for fishermen who depend on it, it has a major and serious threat to the environment and ecosystem at large. so Conversing water as well as protecting it from pollution cannot be over emphasize. i enjoin everyone to see this as a clarion call to action to protect, conserve and preserve our water bodies especially in regions where millions of people depend on it for survival. thanks.

Water pollution has created trauma all over all the world, where many wild animals as well as human beings have been badly affected. I believe water renewable is the best way to conserve water as also avoid pollution.

The amount of water in the planet is limited and constant. It will not increase and decrease but when polluted, it will not be useful any longer.
Conservation, prevention of pollution and treatment of any polluted water is necessary for continuation of human civilization. Human activities are the main cause for water pollution. Plants purify water and creatures other than human do not pollute it and their water use is natural and limited.

I agree that water pollution is a problem and we should conserve water to decrease water pollution, however we need to also consider other factors and other ways humans pollute water. There are many non-point and point sources of water pollution and some of the most dominant ones are fertilizer run off and there is also noise pollution to take into consideration.
