Water is an important element in our daily lives and we should teach this importance to our kids in school or at home. Also teach the students steps to prevent the water pollution. Water covers more than 70 percent of the surface of the Earth, it is the most precious natural resources of our planet. The more we can learn about water the better we can understand its importance. We need to keep the water unpolluted in our oceans, rivers, and lakes because otherwise it harms the same planet we survive on. Only 1 percent is useful for drinking and cooking. As the population is increasing rapidly, water pollution is becoming a problem.
Water pollution is the biggest problem in world today. It affects drinking water, rivers, lakes, and oceans all over the world. This consequently harms human health and the natural environment. Human activity is one of the biggest factor of our seas, rivers, and lakes getting polluted by littering. Water is the necessity of life and we use it everyday in our lives, and we get this water from rivers, lakes, and groundwater sources. Water pollution is also caused by sewage, waste of water, industrial waste, oil pollution, Atmospheric Deposition, Marine Dumping, Littering, and Global warming. Wasting water is also a biggest factor in water pollution, wasting water from homes and commercial establishments. We all need to be very careful when using water for any purpose.
There are many ways to prevent water pollution. We as teachers can teach children in school to prevent water pollution. It is an important factor in our lives and children should learn the importance of water in the world today. Some of the preventions for example are, to teach children not to waste water. We should conserve water by turning off the tap when running water is not necessary. This helps prevent water shortages and reduces the amount of contaminated water that needs treatment. Teach the students not to throw any types of litter down the drain. Another example that we can do at home is to use environmental friendly products. Also, teach children to plant more plants in your garden that help prevent fertiliser, pesticides and contaminated water from running off into nearby water sources. And one very important factor to prevent water pollution is not to litter. Do not throw any litter into rivers, lakes, or oceans. Help clean up our environment becaue we all want to stay healthy and drink clean water.
