WATER POLLUTION

BY: Madie Dunn

Water is one of the most valuable resources we have on these planet. We use it to stay hydrated, to clean things, and it's even in some foods. But, if our water is being contaminated, we could potentially be killing ourselves by doing something so simple as drinking water. Our water is being polluted with toxic chemicals because of our own actions. If we don't start to prevent this, there will be no fresh water left.

Fish, birds, and wildlife depend on clean water just a much as people do
