Suggest ways that we can minimise water pollution.
Listen, read and check. Then explain the words in bold.
Clean water is our most precious resource, yet every day we dump about two million tons of waste into the world's rivers, lakes and streams. This not only spells bad news for the animals and plants that live in them, but can also make humans ill when the pollution floats down into the oceans that we swim in!
There are several things we can do to restore our sick waterways back to health. First things first, make sure you NEVER throw anything that could be toxic down a drain or onto soil. Then, make sure that no litter, grass clippings or leaves are allowed to get washed into storm drains, as they could end up seriously harming aquatic creatures. Next, clean up after your dog!
Another way to reduce water pollution is to reduce excess
water runoff. You can do this by making sure that your sprinkler is watering just your garden, not the pavement too! You can also try sweeping, not hosing, your paths and cleaning your car with a bucket of water instead of a hosepipe. Better still, take it to be cleaned in a car wash, as they know how to dispose of waste water properly.
Finally, try to use products that aren't harmful to the environment, such as compost instead of chemical fertilisers.
Basically, remember that anything that gets onto the ground can eventually end up in a river, lake or stream! So, make sure you do not allow any chemicals or waste to go on the ground or down the drain.
