There are many considerations to discuss to be able to learn more about this major catastrophe.One of the many causes of water pollution is the point source pollution which are industrial plants scattered on the different parts of the world.
The preservation of our water environment, which is embedded in sustainable development, must be well driven by all sectors.
While effective wastewater treatment has the tendency of salvaging the water environment, integration of environmental policies into the actor firms core objectives coupled with continuous periodical enlightenment on the present and future consequences of environmental/water pollution will greatly assist in conserving the water environment.

Besides drinking, other uses which may affect human health are swimming, bathing, use of water for agriculture, fisheries and in food industries, etc.
