Our Water Threats

1. Point Source Pollution: toxic waste that comes from factories, industrial plants, sewage treatment plants, and stormwater sewers
2. Nonpoint Source Pollution: toxins originating from many different sources that all  acuminate together, such as litter, urban runoff, agricultural runoff, acid mine drainage, hydraulic fractured drilling, and gas well drilling
3. Water Scarcity Crisis: scientists estimate that if conditions remain the same we will experience a worldwide water shortage in fifty years
4. Growing Garbage Crisis: trash especially plastic is consuming our planet                5. Global Warming: the increase of carbon in our atmosphere creates an overall temperature rise on of planet, which contributes to the increase of evaporation to our fresh water supplies and the melting of our ice caps.
