All about Water Pollution By: Alibek Duncan (Eli)
What is the importance of Water
Comparing Water from other countries with the United States of America.
China: At least 60 percent of China’s underground water resources have “very poor” or “relatively poor” quality, which means these water can’t be used for drinking, showing a deep environmental crisis in the country. The country’s land and resources ministry found that among 4,778 testing spots in 203 cities, 44% had “relatively poor” underground water quality; the groundwater in another 15.7% tested as “very poor”.
Africa: 4,000 kids each day parish to heaven because of Waterborne Illness. Lots of people there do not have access to clean water. Waterborne illnesses can be deadly in areas where there is no clean or drinkable water. On an average 3.4 million people every year die from water born disease. It is the worlds leading killer.
Egypt People in Egypt depend on their water from the Nile river. The Nile river is facing pollution and people do not know how they are going to drink their clean water. Citizens are worried about the quality of their drinking water. Cases of mass poisoning have appeared in various areas as a result of polluted drinking water.
Today in the United States 3 out of every 4 americans use city sewage systems. Cities in the United States depend on surface water near by. Water Quality in the United States indicates that 45% of U.S. rivers and 47% of lakes are considered polluted. Water Quality is still a major problem in the United States. The United States would do anything to provide water in other countries so no kids can parish.
