Dr. Ratna Roy Pathak

Abstract :

With about 70% of the earth’s cover being water, it undeniably becomes one of our greatest resources. Water is used in almost every important human chores and processes. It is important in both domestic as well as industrial purposes. However a closer inspection of our water resources today, give us a rude shock. Infested with waste ranging from floating plastic bags to chemical waste, our water bodies have turned into a pool of poison. The contamination of water bodies in simplest words means water pollution. Thereby the abuse of lakes, ponds, oceans, rivers, reservoirs etc is water pollution. Pollution of water occurs when substances that will modify the water in negative fashion are discharged in it. This discharge of pollutants can be direct as well as indirect. Water pollution is an appalling problem, powerful enough to lead the world on a path of destruction. Water is an easy solvent, enabling most pollutants to dissolve in it easily and contaminate1 it. The most basic effect of water pollution is directly suffered by the organisms and vegetation that survive in water. On a human level, several people die each day due to consumption of polluted and infected water.
