Generally, we have to ask ourselves two questions when it comes to water pollution: how much of it is caused by human activity, and what can we do about it?
So, in this blog we will specifically talk about controlling the water pollution caused by anthropogenic activities.
Comprehensive water pollutants
From the convenience of our homes, it would appear that water pollution isn't that bad. But whether a country is industrialized or not, water contamination exists everywhere and can take many different forms.
Water pollution, according to the National Resources Defence Council (NRDC), "occurs when dangerous substances—often chemicals or microorganisms—contaminate a stream, river, lake, ocean, aquifer, or body of water, deteriorating water quality and making it toxic to humans or the environment."
Water is particularly susceptible to impurities and pollutants because it behaves as a sponge for poisons, while being touted as a "universal solvent."
How can we tackle water pollution caused by anthropogenic activities?
Water pollution prevention is a difficult task. On a personal level, you can feel as though your efforts are but a drop in a very huge bucket. But in addition to contacting your elected officials, altering your purchasing practices so that you only patronize businesses that support environmentally friendly products, and trying to organize change on a bigger scale, here are some changes you can make on a smaller scale at home.
• To prevent returning oils and fats to the environment, keep a fat jar beneath the sink where you can collect all of your used cooking oils and fats and into your water.
• Maintain solids' solidity. Pesticides, herbicides, medicines, and other substances from your food wind up in your water supply, when you use a garbage disposal. You may help keep toxins out of your water supply, by leaving them solid and placing them in a composting bin.
• Consistently check for leaks in your appliances. The toilet accounts for 24% of the average daily water consumption, followed by the shower (20%), faucet (19%), washing machine (17%), and "other" (8%). However, major water leakage accounts for 12% of the average daily water consumption.
• Keep an eye out for leaks and cracks in your appliances, and make sure everything is functioning as it should.
• Don't flush your medications down the toilet.
• Investing in Water filtration systems are some of the energy-efficient appliances. A suitable water filtration system should be built to sufficiently remove toxins from your water supply, such as pesticides and herbicides, and to guarantee that you are drinking clean, healthy water.
• Additionally, it lessens the amount of medications, heavy metals like lead and mercury, chlorine-resistant cysts like giardia and cryptosporidium, organic pollutants like pesticides, herbicides, and VOCs, as well as other substances.
• Additionally, it is environmentally friendly and is made with less throwaway plastic parts, to prevent plastic waste.
As the effects of climate change start to manifest themselves, water poisoning is already a significant issue that many people are dealing with. This is especially true for those who live in more rural or economically depressed areas of the world. Yet we can assist. Ultimately, you must be the change you wish to see in the world, therefore don't allow the pollutants prevail.
