Rationale regularly, human activities – mechanical, horticultural and residential – cause incomprehensible amounts of common and engineered chemicals to be transmitted into the air.

Slide 6

Objectives To obtain learning of the operators of contamination To examine the causes and impact of water contamination To assess the degree of water contamination in the surroundings To propose contamination preventive measures to the organization and the group To make general mindfulness in regards to water contamination issue in the group

Slide 18

Analysis - Effects of contamination Turbidity - Low water clarity diminishes the measure of daylight accessible for photosynthesis. Suspended particles meddles with channel nourishing and breath through gills. Concentrated mechanical wastewater and agrarian keep running off of manure and chemicals into surface water influence levels of broke up oxygen in water Treatment of crude water from surface water hotspots for human utilization and for modern use has turned out to be more perplexing and gets to be costlier in light of water contamination.

Slide 19

What are approaches to beat water contamination? To successfully do its "One State, One River" project to restore one waterway in every state according to the Ninth Malaysia Plan arranged by the Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID), Malaysia Adequate Sewage and Drainage frameworks Formulate stringent contamination control directions Educate the general population of this city to build up an environmental inner voice Sensitize individuals about the need of hour – to check water contamination
