Water pollution is being stopped in a number of ways. Large companies are no longer allowed to pump chemicals into natural water supplies, and heavy taxes have been imposed. Hence, companies no longer carelessly pump waste into natural water supplies.

There are many things you can do to help stop water pollution too, however. We can all help prevent it, which just adds to the laws that are put in place to stop industries from being careless. Daily activities can have a huge effect on water pollution, and by making a few changes we can help water stop being polluted and create a superior society.

You should learn about the flow of water. The water from households goes to the sewage system, and then into treatment facilities where most of the pollutants are removed. Then you should examine your habits.  The use of pesticides at home means that when it rains, the chemicals from your lawn wash into the storm sewers. So try and think of ways that you can keep your plants free from insects without adding to water pollution.

You could also go about picking up your pet waste, as this is another common form of water pollution that many people do not realise. You need to remember that when you pollute the land, you are polluting the water. Hence, try and stop doing things like throwing cigarette butts on the ground! Throwing things on the ground often results in them getting swept up with water and contaminating some form of water supply.

The disposal of household products like paint and solvents, too, should not involve pouring them down drains. They should be disposed of properly at hazardous waste disposal units. Take these things in to account and you’ll know that you are helping to stop water pollution.
