Mitigation Strategies and Solutions
We are going to look into the water resource, what is causing the water pollution. We are
going to look into the nonliving and living factors that are part of the problem? Look at what the
positive and negative impacts we as humans have on the water problem. Look at what some of
the plans that are already in place to help the water resources, and come up with a plan that might
help the water resource problem. Talk about how the government, societal, and global support
that would help with a new water resource plan. Let begin with the water resource plan!
Water is something that we can’t live without humans, animals, and the earth, water
covers over 70% of the earth’s surface. According to Krantz & Kifferstein, “without the
seemingly invaluable compound comprised of hydrogen and oxygen, life on Earth would be non-
existent: it is essential for everything on our planet to grow and prosper.” (Introduction, Para 1).
We have streams, lakes, reservoirs, groundwater, aquifers, and wells. The USGS is an
organization that uses science to observe, analyze, and understand the movement and condition
of surface water, and to discover and describe the location, condition, and behavior of water in
the ground (USGS, 2010). The problem that we have is that we are polluting our water resources,
and we need to make sure that we are able to keep them clean. We need water in everyday life
just like animals, and the earth, and if we can’t make sure that it stay’s clean then we are just
asking for trouble. We destroying our water resources, with all the harmful things that we let get
into our water, without water plant, animals, humans, and the earth will slowly die off.
There are ways that water can get pollution without the help from humans like when you
put fertilizer on your grass, the rain water can wash it into a stream, which can affect the aquatic
life; this is what happens with environmental changes.
