Effects of pollutants on the aquatic environment
The planet keeps nudging us with increasingly extreme droughts, reminding us that water is life. It is an essential resource upon which all living beings depend and it is crucial to all social and economic development, as well as energy production and adaptation to climate change. Nevertheless, we are now facing a gigantic challenge. How do we stop contaminating our rivers, seas, oceans, canals, lakes and reservoirs? Water pollution is endangering the health of millions of people around the world.
Water pollution , the release of substances into subsurface groundwater or into lakes , streams, rivers , estuaries , and oceans to the point where the substances interfere with beneficial use of the water or with the natural functioning of ecosystems. In addition to the release of substances, such as chemicals or microorganisms, water pollution may also include the release of energy , in the form of radioactivity or heat , into bodies of water. Water pollution is the release of substances into bodies of water that makes water unsafe for human use and disrupts aquatic ecosystems. Water pollution can be caused by a plethora of different contaminants, including toxic waste , petroleum , and disease-causing microorganisms. Human activities that generate domestic sewage and toxic waste cause water pollution by contaminating water with disease-causing microorganisms and poisonous substances. Oil spills are another source of water pollution that have devastating impacts on surrounding ecosystems.
Water Pollution: Everything You Need to Know
Pakistan is an agricultural country having the world's largest canal irrigation system. Indus basin that covers 70 percent of irrigated area for crop production is the major source of water in the country. Owing to rapid increase in population and uncertain environmental conditions, this water is not adequate to cope with the crop water requirement and needs additional means to provide extra water for agricultural purposes. The main source of irrigation is canal and ground water but the quality of ground water is so poor for the sustainability of agriculture system. To cope with the present demand, use of municipal sewage water that consists of domestic liquid waste, as well as industrial effluents, is becoming a common practice.

Industrial agriculture is one of the leading causes of water pollution in the United States. Beaches may close due to algal blooms, and fishing activities may be severely limited. Excessive nutrient runoff in waterways can impact drinking water supplies and, in some cases, cause severe health problems. Concentrated animal feeding operations CAFOs , also known as factory farms, typically house thousands of animals, generating millions if not billions of gallons of animal waste per year. For example, North Carolina alone generates almost 10 billion gallons of animal waste per year.
How Industrial Agriculture Affects Our Water
We can all relate to water. We know we need it to survive — indeed, the early great civilisations of Egypt and Mesopotamia were centred on river valleys where there was a plentiful supply of fresh, clean water. Water is a fascinating subject, encompassing chemistry, biology and physics. Apart from keeping us alive, water is used extensively in industrial processes, for recreation and for transport.
It is characterized by volume or rate of flow , physical condition, chemical and toxic constituents, and its bacteriologic status which organisms it contains and in what quantities. It consists mostly of greywater from sinks, bathtubs, showers, dishwashers, and clothes washers , blackwater the water used to flush toilets , combined with the human waste that it flushes away ; soaps and detergents; and toilet paper less so in regions where bidets are widely used instead of paper. Sewage usually travels from a building's plumbing either into a sewer , which will carry it elsewhere, or into an onsite sewage facility of which there are many kinds. Whether it is combined with surface runoff in the sewer depends on the sewer design sanitary sewer or combined sewer. The term sewage is nowadays regarded as an older term and is being more and more replaced by "wastewater".
The increased amount of organic and toxic materials in the waste effluents of industries is a major source of water contamination in Pakistan  .
- И частью программы они явно не являются. - Да бросьте вы это, - проворчал Джабба. - Хватаетесь за соломинку. - Может быть, и нет, - сказала Сьюзан. - Во множестве шифров применяются группы из четырех знаков. Возможно, это и есть ключ.
Ничего. Вроде бы на нижней ступеньке никого. Может, ему просто показалось. Какая разница, Стратмор никогда не решится выстрелить, пока он прикрыт Сьюзан. Но когда он начал подниматься на следующую ступеньку, не выпуская Сьюзан из рук, произошло нечто неожиданное. За спиной у него послышался какой-то звук. Он замер, чувствуя мощный прилив адреналина.
Джабба смотрел прямо перед собой, как капитан тонущего корабля. - Мы опоздали, сэр. Мы идем ко дну.

Он отдал распоряжение вырубить электропитание, но это все равно произойдет на двадцать минут позже, чем следует.
