Environmental Pollution Outline

Water management- developing various plans to maintain the present and future water demands. It also may include importing state water, developing new resources, using reclaimed water, and managing existing supplies more cautiously. Describe water management and use.

Freshwater sources- Is water from the earth surface using glaciers, bogs, ice caps, ponds, lakes, streams and rivers

Next there is the in-stream usage which is the use of rivers for navigation, hydroelectric power generation, fish and animal habitats and also recreation. Effects of water use and management practices on the environment Short-term effects-

Long-term effects- It’s really is a major concern due to climate change of the earth it can be uncertain. Three major types of environmental pollution- Water pollution , Air Pollution, Land Pollution Identify type one.
