Well, there are many forms of water pollution. So asking "How can we stop water pollution?" is a little vague and, also, a little impossible. There is no way to STOP pollution but there are many, many ways to prevent it.

Water pollution is can pretty much be classified into two groups. Point source pollution and Non-point source pollution. Point source pollution is easy to fix because we know where it is and where it's coming from. An example would be an oil tanker busting and spilling its contents into the ocean. It's harmful to the environment, but can be cleaned and can be prevented with better technology on the ships. Non-Point source pollution is the cause of the majority of water pollution. Non-point source pollution is when your car engine leaks onto the road, which is washed into a nearby stream when it rains, and then is carried out into a lake and finally reaches the ocean. This kind of pollution happens every day and is harder prevent.

So in order to PREVENT water pollution, you just have to simply be mindful of what your doing and the impact of the things you may not normally think about. Just remember "everything goes down stream." Whether you live right next to the ocean or on top of a mountain, your pollution still has an impact on the earth.
