The constantly increasing pollution of the environment has been one of the greatest concerns the general public in the last decade. Water and soil pollutants represent two major categories of environmental pollution. Water- and soil-polluting substances are often due to man-made wastes such as household garbage, manufacturing and agricultural wastes, fertilizers used by farmers, oil spills, and radioactive materials. Polluted water and soil represent a serious threat to the citizens and other organisms. Water pollution can contribute to soil pollution and vice versa. Water is a scarce and essential natural resource. Conserving and maintaining water quality is especially important in our city. Preventing or reducing water pollution protects our water quality and is essential to maintaining the health of our environment and our own quality of life. Industry is only one source of water pollution. Other sources include sewage treatment plants, households, streets and footpaths.
