Our Polluted Drinkiing Water

Our drinking water is often dirty and full of harmfull substances and chemicals. Many people and animals die from the polluted water. 80% of this problem is caused by water runoff. Harmfull chemicals get poured into the ground and end up in lakes, streams and rivers that supply our water.

What causes this problem?

Our polluted water is mostly caused by people disposing of harmful substances incorrectly. That is how it gets into the soil. Many people do not know how to take care and dispose properly of substances.

Our solution

One of the ways to prevent this problem is encourage people to dispose of harful chemicals and substances correctly. Another possible sollution is to plant more grass and then the stuff wouldnt get into the soil.
