Whatís In Your Water?
Explanation: Even under the best natural conditions, water is not completely pure. It contains bits of sand, dirt, salt, and tiny organisms. These must be filtered out before humans can safely use the water. However pollution often makes water so dirty that filtering is only the first step in a complex purifying process. Water can be so polluted it is almost impossible to clean!
When water isnít clean, it isnít only humans that are affected. Plants and animals can also become sick and die if their water supply is polluted. Water pollution also clogs up lakes and ponds, causes disease, and destroys the beauty of natural areas.
What can you do to help keep your townís water supply clean?
