Water pollution means presence harmful pollutants and substances in your water bodies. Generally, it is noticed when the harmful substances and pollutants are released in the water bodies. This is the cause of water of ponds, river reservoirs, canal, and ground water gets polluted. One of the major causes of water pollution is caused due to discharge of industrial waste into the water bodies, garbage discharge, agricultural insecticides and wastage from thermal power station. Water pollution might be one if the cause of disrupting the human life up to a greater extent. So, here are certain ways of reducing the amount of water pollution.
Ways of decreasing water pollution:
Stop the river water getting polluted:
Accepting and implementing natural process of cleaning the flowing water from the river is not easy. As there are large quantity of external sources are discharged into the water. This makes the river water more polluted. It might lead to cause diseases to the people in taking river water. Thus, it’s advisable of making each and every effort for keeping the river water clean and from getting contaminated.
Improve the sewage treatments:
It’s very important for cleaning the sewage system of home, because it helps in making the environment free from pollution and safe. Effective care should be taken for ensuring that the sewage system is up to date. Give proper attention to the sewage treatment because it is necessary to be in right place for eliminating the contaminated water away from the water that mixes with the environment. When it comes for preventing and reducing water pollution, excretion of animal and humans should be eliminated from mixing with the water bodies. You can construct a pit toilet and perform proper sewage treatment for effectively reducing the water pollution.
Proper treatment of water drainage:
When it comes to cities, a huge amount of water is drained every day. For reducing the amount of water pollution, the water that eliminates from the city waste should be properly disposed. it’s important for removing the harmful elements and pollutants before they are allowed to be flowed into the water reservoirs. If the water is not treated well, and is simply allowed into the reservoirs, it would pollute the whole of the water reservoir.
Don’t pour the pesticides and insecticides into the toilets and sinks:
It’s advisable of never pouring harmful or chemical pesticides or insecticides into the toilets, drains or sinks. We have observed that in homes, many of them often throw the old medicines onto the toilets. This type of practice is always discouraged because it the chemical and harmful insecticides when starts mixing the other chemicals present in the water, might result into building harmful substances that can infect the health of people.
Lakes, wells and ponds are mean for the human use. So, it’s very important of cleaning it regularly. It should be treated well by using ingredients that are helpful in cleaning and killing the germs present in the water. Regular testing of lakes and ponds resulted into introducing the safety and reducing water pollution.

One of the major problems which our planet faces in this age is pollution. Water and air pollution are the most alarming factors playing a role in pollution of our ecosystem. If you want, you can stop or control pollution to some extent by doing your bit. Water pollution is caused due to many factors. If you can get to the root of the problem and stop it, then you can save many water bodies and enhance the lives of underwater flora and fauna at the same time.
You should keep in mind never to throw any garbage in water bodies. Water bodies have a natural process called eutrophication which is the process of a water body’s cleansing itself. But if you keep dumping garbage and non recyclable materials and harmful chemical, this process will stop soon. Also make sure that you don’t wash clothes or utensils in water. In many countries people defecate in water bodies which make water toxic over time.

Storm water pollution has become a major environmental hazard. Storm water may be referred to any form of liquid which comes into existence due to precipitation process. Water derived as a result of snow melting may also be termed as storm water.
After rainfall the ground absorbs the rainwater. However, there is never 100% absorption. Problem arises when a large volume of water remain unabsorbed and therefore flows on the surface of the ground. This water washes away all the dirt and pollutants present on the surface of the earth and thereby result in storm water pollution.
To fight storm water pollution environmentalists have devised many ways:
Storm water harvest: the storm water is not allowed to run freely and therefore pollute the area. This is done by trapping the storm water in an enclosed area.
Infiltration: this is done to allow the water to be absorbed in the ground.
