    Pollution is one of the greatest and most dangerous threat to the society today and is increasing with each passing day, pollution is the contamination of the Earth through toxic materials which harms each and every living creature in the planet. Pollution can broadly classified into four types:

    1. Air Pollution

    2. Water Pollution

    3. Land Pollution

    4. Soil Pollution

    WATER POLLUTION: Contamination of the water bodies through many practices such as disposing off toxic untreated factory wastes directly into water bodies, performing domestic activities in water bodies such as bathing, washing clothes and utensils, immersing idols after festival and disposing off plastic and other non-biodegradable wastes into water is termed as water pollution.

    Water pollution is very much harmful as the amount of drinkable water on the Earth surface is already very less on top of that if the existing sources are also polluted then soon there will be no drinkable water left. Also, it harms the wide variety of creatures sustaining life in water bodies the toxic water no longer provides them a healthy environment and as a result they die. We human beings also consume see food or rather we consume these toxic creatures which transfers the toxicity to us.

    Its high time for us to adopt measures to keep a check on water pollution.
