A very Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening to Honorable Principal Sir/Madam, respected teachers, seniors, and my dear friends, Warm Greetings to Everyone!
Thank you all for taking out time and being present at this seminar session. I hope that this morning/afternoon/evening will carry you all a lot of positivity and positive vibes with it. I am standing here to give a significant speech on “Water Pollution”.
Water pollution is a very significant environmental challenge that we are currently facing. When physical, biological, and chemical properties deteriorate due to human activities, water gets contaminated. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that approximately 1.1 billion people, one-sixth of the world’s population, lack access to clean water, and 2.4 billion lack basic sanitation. It is increasingly evident that environmental factors are important for the health and well-being of the human population. In addition, water contamination is also responsible for influencing the lives of humans and animals. It is highly unsafe for the community and must be urgently curbed.
As we as a whole realize that water is the thing that gives us life and no life would be conceivable on earth without it. This is the motivation behind why it is said that each and every drop of water matters. We use water each and every day in practice the entirety of our family errands and for other business purposes also. We need water for drinking, washing, cooking, fishing, water system, and so on. Water pollution is a major threat to the environment and the sustenance of life, as described above. The factories that discharge waste into water bodies are undoubtedly the key source responsible for water contamination. They don’t handle the waste properly and spill the dangerous contaminants in the water directly.
The water we drink is a vital aspect for our wellbeing and healthy existence. However, we nevertheless waste this crucial resource and do no longer make wise use of it. Now not handiest will we use water recklessly and misuse it, but additionally motive water pollution. In the oceans and rivers, waste, toxic waste, and other remains of used goods are dumped, resulting in water pollution. High water temperatures decrease oxygen levels, which can kill fish and alter the composition of the food chain, reduce the biodiversity of organisms, and encourage invasion by new thermophilic species.
Sewage water and industrial discharged heavy metal effluents, which cause harm to human health or the environment, are contaminated water. The Global Oceanic Environmental Survey (GOES) organization considers water pollution to be one of the major environmental problems that in the next decades may pose a danger to the existence of life on earth. Water pollution can be of several kinds based on the type or source of contaminant, such as:
- Bacterial Pollution
- Nutrient Pollution
- Pesticide Pollution
- Metallic Pollution
- Thermal Pollution
- Viral Pollution
- Radioactive Pollution
- Petrochemical Pollution
Further, we see that the merciless utilization of manures and pesticides that are done in the horticultural area contaminates the water bodies incredibly. At the point when the release isn’t controlled and sterilization isn’t legitimate, it adds to water contamination. Oil or coal-based generators and nuclear energy plants discharge a humongous measure of waste warmth, which is diverted as high temp water and lead to warm contamination. Water pollution can be defined as the discharge into the lakes, estuaries, rivers, streams, and oceans of our water bodies of harmful substances to the point that the elements interfere with the favorable use of water or the normal functioning of ecosystems.
Other than the release of substances, for example, microorganisms or synthetics, water contamination additionally comprises the arrival of energy as warmth, radioactivity into water bodies. Also, the people and creatures who burn-through this water from the dirtied water bodies negatively affect their wellbeing. The problem of water contamination is rarely suffered by developing countries. For water contamination, there are excellent management practices that consist of methods such as reducing the quantity of water and enhancing water quality.
For that reason, we need to prevent water pollution with the aid of adopting proper waste management policies. An unmarried enterprise, authorities, or person won’t have the ability to perform this undertaking. We want to do it collectively.
Now, I would like to end my speech here and continue with it in our next seminar. In the meantime, let’s address what steps we should take to deal with the current situation.
Hope you all have a great time.
Thank you all.
