what are we doing to our water supply?
There are many types of pollution and they all affect us there is surface water pollution, ground water pollution, microbiological pollution, oxygen depleting pollution, nutrient poor water pollution, suspended matter pollution, and chemical water pollution. These pollutions all affect the amount of water available to our communities.

chemical water pollution
one of many forms of water pollution is chemical water pollution, this is cause from run off or even direct flow of a chemical in to water. pesticides, oil, fertilizer,metal, petrolem, etc these are all things that can cause chemical water pollution and a majority of them are human causes. allowing chemical water pollution to continue to happen is killing fish and other sea animals.we all know of oil pollution its tradgedy however 363 hundred million of the 706 hundred million gallons of oil in the water is cause from humans being carless. chemical pollution is a human cause pollution that cause many side affects.
surface water pollution
rivers, lakes, ponds, and oceans this has to do with the waters on the exterior of the earth. these pollutions are caused by mixing of different kinds of water
much of earths water is found underground. people often use aquifers as means to clean this water. however the pollution that goes on underground has much to do with the pestisides and the other things we place on our lawns.
bacteria, viruses, and protazoa. you may not consider them to be means of pollution but they are all cause that make our water undrinkable and unable to be used. they spread dieases and make us sick
pollution that is causesd by heavy perticals settling on the water and changin how our waters acidity level is making it undrinkable
This can contaminate drinking water and clog filters. This can be damaging to other aquatic organisms as the algae use up the oxygen in the water, leaving none for the surrounding marine life.
when microorganisms in the water take to much oxygen making the water less livable for the animals and bacteria to live in.
