Does sewage water pollute our environment?
The answer of the question “How much it affects the environment?” can vary from man to man. But it is obvious that storm pollution is affecting the environment a lot.
For example, motor oil is used by billions of people all over the world. This burned oil is being mixed up into ocean by storm drain pollution or by some other ways. When a quart of burned oil is being mixed up into river or ocean it contaminates 250,000 gallons of pure drinking water.
And guess what, in every year over 350 million gallons of burned oil is dumped into the ocean. Which is directly polluting the environment & destroying the under water life.
Not only this, wildlife is also being threatened by this kind of pollution. By drinking the water full of germs, chemicals, virus and burned oil these animals is getting sick.
What can we do?
Actually we can do many things. But matter of sorrow that we usually do not do anything special
Just think, it takes 42 gallons of crude oil to create 2 and 0.5 quarts of lubricating oil. The same 2 and 0.5 quarts are often created with 0.5 the maximum amount energy from only 1 gallon of recycled oil. It could be one way to reduce pollution.
We also have to recycle plastic or aluminum products and paper also. Cleaning the under water can be another solution. Because trash poses a threat to marine animals as they fight to eat it or get trapped or tangled within the debris.
People living in the city area are more responsible for pollution rather than rural/village people.
Storm is a natural calamity. It affects everyone living in town or village area. After storm there is a huge amount of pollutants or disturbing elements in the earth surface which are directly responsible for storm pollution. Pollution is must after any kind of natural disaster & when it is storm then it is guaranteed to storm water pollution or storm drain pollution.
How this pollution does happen?
Pollution can be happen from anywhere.
Even the cleanest cities in New Jersey and elsewhere in the nation are contributing to the pollution. City people are producing various kinds of wastes which are known as pollutants. This harmful element does not just vanish. They stay on the surface area and when storm or any other natural calamity occurs, these pollutants wash away with the water. The polluted water mixed with various water source and finally the get mixed. Not only this, there are more….
Burned Motor car oil directly dumped into the river or ocean which causes serious damage to nature. Human & animal waste is polluting water source directly or (in developing countries) washed away as the after effect of storm.Dangerous chemical & epidemic germs being spread by storm water which is more likely to storm drain pollution. Though these sensitive elements used to keep safe by professionals.
Let me tell you a personal experience of mine about visual pollution effects. Once I was going to a long drive. I was on the car and watching the road side view. The car was moving first. Suddenly advertise of a company drew my attention. The advertise was colorful & eye catching.
I looked at to the advertising and thinking about that. Than a thought comes to my mind. These colorful banners & posters doing marketing for sure but they are also responsible for pollution. This kind of pollution is causing for human. The interesting thing is that the pollution is causing for this is not causing psychical damage. This pollution is causing mental pollution.
Here is one of the visual pollution pictures.
In this point many of us will think that mental pollution will not harm much. But I will say that don’t underestimate this. This kind of pollution may not harm you directly but in the long run you will be sufferer.
In this stage one question will come to your mind “how can visual pollution harm us?.
For answering this we have to use our thinking power, our imagination. For visual pollution many problems may happen. I am discussing the most common ones, visual pollution blocks your view.
Its creates pressure on the brain. It reduce your power of thinking. In several times it creates depression among us.
Visual pollution causes for billboard is also responsible for air pollution because it prevent fresh air to enter your home. In many street various kind of electric cable is causing visual pollution. Not only that it also creates accident several times.
Natural vegetation and animals can be physically damaged by visual pollution. Visual pollution can harm us in many ways. We generally take visual pollution lightly. As a result we are unaware of the negative effect of visual pollution most of the time.
Visual pollution blocks our thinking power these why many artist go outside of the city in order to get rid of visual pollution to create something creative & useful.
