Water Pollution

Water is the most basic of all the living things. No one all cannever survive without it.It reprogresses with population increase. the nature of water cleaniness is majority important. Water in our area is based on a river that runs around. My main point of reference is the water is highly poisonuos that we get it rough to survive.The town up the hill produces pollutant on this river. The silt has also increased this pollution. The United nation heard our pledge and decided to come to our aid.

The treatment of sevages was done before relase of the effluent to the water. Compensation was done to riverbank farmers that reduces siltation. Trees growing was done communally.
