This site has been up for 2 years! And it's so popular! Please come here frequently around June, where my summer holiday starts. I'm going to put a flash intro very soon!
I'm already a High School student! It's hard to have time to fix my site. Yes! It's almost done! Oh yeah. By the way. I don't know why the site loads so slow... dunno why. This is a project done by some 7th graders in Hong Kong, attending Hong Kong International School. This is a project we are giving to the world, because it is a subject that concerns all of us around the world. This is not only for our water pollution project, but for the world to know about. We have put this project together, to help animals, and the next generation, to have a better world. It is up to us students of this generation to look toward. This is a matter that has been going on for years. Why do people say, "A better environment starts at home, but no one is cooperating to help this matter." So as you go through our project we hope you will reflect and do things to help this world, to become a better environment.

    Water Pollution - Canada Takes Crap for Flushing Raw Sewage into the Ocean
    Canada flushes some 200 billion litres of raw sewage directly into natural waterways every year, from the St. Lawrence River to the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Pacific Ocean. One of the worst offenders is the city of Victoria, the picturesque capital of British Columbia, the province that is preparing to host the 2010 Winter Olympics.

    Attention for water pollution exploded in the 1980s. The oil spill of the Exxon Valdez showed many around the world just how horrible the effects of water pollution could be. However, even the Exxon Valdez spill barely touched the surface of the problem of water pollution. The ship spilt only 5% of the oil spilt that year, and oil is just one of many pollutants that people dump into the water every year. Every year, 14 billions pounds of sewage, sludge, and garbage are dumped into the world's oceans. 19 trillion gallons of waste also enter the water annually. The problem of ocean pollution affects every nation around the world. This is especially true because water is able to transport pollution from one location to another. For many years, chemicals were dumped into bodies of water without concern. While many countries have now banned such behavior, it continues to go on today. As the world has industrialized and its population has grown, the problem of water pollution has intensified. The simple fact that millions of people live along coastlines and near rivers means that these bodies of water are likely candidates for heavy and destructive pollution. It is hard to know now what our oceans will look like in the future. Just how damaged they will be by pollution is uncertain.

    Water pollution
    Water pollution is a large set of adverse effects upon water bodies (lakes, rivers, oceans, groundwater) caused by human activities. See also: Although natural phenomena such as volcanoes, storms, earthquakes etc. also cause major changes in water quality and the ecological status of water, these are not deemed to be pollution. Water pollution has many causes and characteristics. Increases in nutrient loading may lead to eutrophication. Organic wastes such as sewage and farm waste impose high oxygen demands on the receiving water leading to oxygen depletion with potentially severe impacts on the whole eco-system. Industries discharge a variety of pollutants in their wastewater including heavy metals, organic toxins, oils, nutrients, and solids. Discharges can also have thermal effects, especially those from power stations, and these too reduce the available oxygen. Silt-bearing runoff from many activities including construction sites, forestry and farms can inhibit the penetration of sunlight through the water column restricting photosynthesis and causing blanketing of the lake or river bed which in turns damages the ecology.

    Title: Water Pollution
    (Note: This is a 3-day mini-unit designed for Mrs. Carrals 2nd Grade Bilingual class at Grant Elementary School, Trenton, NJ.)
    This mini-unit is designed to teach students about the concepts of pollution and conservation. To accomplish this, a variety of techniques will be used, such as demos, lectures, and group work. Throughout this mini-unit, the students will be asked to identify different types of pollutants and think about ways they can help conserve water.
    There are many ways in which people pollute our water supply. Some habits we have, we are very aware of; others are not so obvious. This mini-unit will show students the ways we pollute our water supply. Some of these ways are not so familiar to children. We need to cause them to look for alternatives. Our water supply is limited and precious, and we need children to be a part of water conservation efforts. Everyone who helps becomes an asset to society.

    Water Pollution
    The leading types of water pollution in the U.S.
    In a one-inch rainstorm every acre receives 27,000 gallons of water. Where does it all go? Into streams, rivers, lakes, ponds, and the ground. Along its path water picks up pollutants from the air and ground, carrying those pollutants to waterways. A 2000 survey by the US EPA found that 40% of rivers and 45% of lakes in the United States are considered too polluted for fishing, swimming, or aquatic life. The source of the major pollutants in our waterways can be broken up into five categories: Sediment, Chemicals, Oxygen Depleting Nutrients, Metals, and Biological Pollution. It seems like dirt in the water would not be a problem, but sediment can clog gills, reduce visibility for fish, reduce photosynthesis of aquatic plants, and increase the temperature of water by absorbing more sunlight. These changes can have devastating effects on aquatic ecosystems. According to a 1992 EPA report sediment is the leading cause of surface water pollution. It is imoprtant for us to stop erosion of soil and place buffers between open ground and waterways to limit this type of pollution. Metals like arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury come from industry, electrical generation, mining, vehicle use and improperly disposed of waste. The majority of these find there way into the atmosphere and come down with rain. Some metals are picked up by runoff. Either way they pollute rivers, lakes, and seas. Some metals are dangerous to health, and like some chemicals, can bioaccumulate. We can all use less energy and buy fewer things. This ensures that less material is discarded near water where it will pollute. If we all do our part there will be less metal in the water, and a healthier aquatic environment.

    Concise introduction to different types of water pollution, including causes and effects. Includes numerous photos, graphs, and diagrams.
    WATER POLLUTION AND SOCIETY By David Krantz and Brad Kifferstein INTRODUCTION Comprising over 70% of the Earths surface, water is undoubtedly the most precious natural resource that exists on our planet. Without the seemingly invaluable compound comprised of hydrogen and oxygen, life on Earth would be non-existent: it is essential for everything on our planet to grow and prosper. Although we as humans recognize this fact, we disregard it by polluting our rivers, lakes, and oceans. Subsequently, we are slowly but surely harming our planet to the point where organisms
    are dying at a very alarming rate. In addition to innocent organisms dying off, our drinking water has become greatly affected as is our ability to use water for recreational purposes. In order to combat water pollution, we must understand the problems and become part of the solution. POINT AND NONPOINT SOURCES According to the American College Dictionary, pollution is defined as: to make foul or unclean; dirty. Water pollution occurs when a body of water is adversely affected due to the addition of large amounts of materials to the water. When it is unfit for its intended use, water is considered polluted. Two types of water pollutants exist; point source and nonpoint source. Point sources of pollution occur when harmful substances are emitted directly into a body of water. The Exxon Valdez oil spill best illustrates a point source water pollution. A nonpoint source delivers pollutants indirectly through environmental changes. An example of this type of water pollution is when fertilizer from a field is carried into a stream by rain, in the form of run-off

    Water pollution FAQ Frequently Asked Questions
    What is water pollution? Water pollution is any chemical, physical or biological change in the quality of water that has a harmful effect on any living thing that drinks or uses or lives (in) it. When humans drink polluted water it often has serious effects on their health. Water pollution can also make water unsuited for the desired use. What are the major water pollutants? There are several classes of water pollutants. The first are disease-causing agents. These are bacteria, viruses, protozoa and parasitic worms that enter sewage systems and untreated waste. A second category of water pollutants is oxygen-demanding wastes; wastes that can be decomposed by oxygen-requiring bacteria. When large populations of decomposing bacteria are converting these wastes it can deplete oxygen levels in the water. This causes other organisms in the water, such as fish, to die.
    A third class of water pollutants is water-soluble inorganic pollutants, such as acids, salts and toxic metals. Large quantities of these compounds will make water unfit to drink and will cause the death of aquatic life.
    Another class of water pollutants are nutrients; they are water-soluble nitrates and phosphates that cause excessive growth of algae and other water plants, which deplete the water's oxygen supply. This kills fish and, when found in drinking water, can kill young children.
