There are 4 types of water pollutions. ~Toxic: - Chemicals that kill organisms - Fishing is banned when high levels are found - Examples:Pesticides and herbicides, gasoline, oil, household cleaning products, paints and solvents, battery fluid, industrial waste and DDT.. ~Sediment: - Dirt, minerals,sand and silt eroded from land and washed into the water - Reduces sunlight that can reach plants which provide food to underwater animals - Clogs gills of fish, smothers oysters ~Nutrient: - Too much nitrogen and phosphorous - Causes too much algae growth whish clouds water and limits sunlight from reaching plants - Causes by sewage plant overflow, leakage from septic tanks, factory discharge, fertilizers and animal manure ~Bacterial: - Too much bacteria in the water - Sources are sewage treatment facilities, leakage in septic tanks and animal manure

The three different types of water pollution are point-source pollution, nonpoint-source pollution and transboundary pollution. T point-source pollution comes from a singl…e source. The nonpoint-source pollution comes from different sources. Transboundary pollution can affect the environment from many miles away.
1.)Human wastes such as feces and urine 2.)Industrial wastes such as oil. 3.)Chemical runoff such as fertilizer. 4.)Detergents
nope, they are separate things. BUT IF SUSPENDED PARTICULATE MATTERS CAUSED BY AIR POLLUTION SETTLE IN THE WATER BODIES....Then ?
Some types of water pollution are insect repllent (from runoff when it rains). There are also chemicals, garbage, toxic waste, and oil spills. Harmful materials are another ca…use. An example of oil spill pollution is off the coast of South Africa where oil started leaking out of a ship and then started gushing and ruining the South African penguins plumage. It took weeks to rescue the penguins and wash them. Multiple penguins on Robin's Island suffered severe feather loss and death. We wish that people will put forth their effort and help stop water pollution.
the most common type of water pollution is storm run-off.
Clay contains many ionic site which can bind with polluting mateials
Industry, Animals, Agriculture, and Runoff from roads
1. Industrial waste (dyes, grease, very hot water, etc.) 2. Human caused air pollution that then mixes with water vapor and falls in water form (acid rain) 3. Accide…nts (oil spills, cars falling into rivers, etc.) 4. Peeing
Sulphur dioxide mixes with water vapour to form sulphurous and sulphuric acid.
oil and insectisile i thnik !
sediment and bacterial pollution
Oil can pollute the water (you might not consider that an object) and when people throw trash in rivers or ocean or even lakes the water can be polluted.
acid rain, chemical spillages
8 types of water pollution include: Nutrients Pollution Surface Water Pollution Oxygen Depleting Ground Water Pollution Microbiological Suspended Matter Chemical… Water Pollution Oil Spillage
