Is the water okay? Is it hurt?
Water pollution is when pollution sources infect the water. They don't ALL harm the water at the same time(because that would be BAD), but the all hurt the water.This answers some questions you might have about water pollution.:)
What are the scource's of water pollution?
Most water pollution scource's are sewage, marine dumping, industrial waste, radio active waste, under ground storage leaks, atmospheric desposition, and global warming. (That's a bit more than you thought there would be, huh?)Want to know how water pollution can be caused?It can be caused by surface water pollution,oxygen depleting,ground water,NUTRIENTS(wow,I thought nutrients were good for water.I'm having second thoughts now),microbiolocal bacteria,Suspended matter,AND CHEMICALS!!!!That's even more!!!
What are some of the consequences of water pollution?
The effects are numerous!!The food chain is dameged, toxins are in the the water, fish are in the water, fish die and animals(Bears, meat eaters, etc....) Eat the fish, and we eat the animals meat!!!! We all can get sick from water pollution!!!
What can be done to improve the quality of water after it has already been polluted?
Don't throw garbage into rivers, lakes, and the ocean to prevent it from being even more polluted than it already is!!!! And, try to help clean up any litter you see on the ground near water. Those can help the water a lot if you keep doing that.
What are some actions that can be taken to help prevent water from being polluted?
Well, first of all throw your garbage in this awesome thing called a,TRASH CAN!!!! It helps keep gross litter out of the ocean, lakes, and rivers. And, just pick up trash! You should just pick up any trash you see on the ground, even if you didn't put it there.Also try to get your parent's(or yourself, your an adult reading this)to go to a car wash.A few years ago I found out that if you wash your car in a driveway the soapy water gets into the earth and hurts the ocean!!!!
Well? Do you know your answer to the question I asked? I hope you do.

So I'm Jaimie.
I love Anime. My faves right now are Gosick and Hetalia....
Russia and Japan fangirl! XD
Music is my passion! The bands I listen to are Black Veil Brides, Vampires Everywhere!, Blood On the dance Floor, Maroon 5......Ehh I can't remember all of them....^.^"
I find it really funny when people in anime go,"I just learned some japanese!", and I'm just sitting there like, "You've been speaking it the whole episode....SERIOUSLY!?" Mehh.....I have issues. XD
