River pollution is a result of a complex combination of

processes that reduce overall river water quality.

* Acid rain,

* Industrial pollution

* Agricultural pollution contribute to river pollution

* Everyday activities that drain untreated pollutants and

leachate into rivers and streams

* Transport: - where carbon and one-drop-at-a-time 'oil spills'

can also cause pollution through storm run-off

=== === A holistic and integrative understanding of the

cause-effect cycles of river pollution is an effective starting

point to improve river water quality.Water pollution is a complex

issue - from the source of polution to its impacts, both short-term

and long-term on human and other species that depend on water.

Point and non-point sources of pollution have a profound impact on

the degree of pollution, and many times the actual causes are

hidden behind more 'visible' causes. Understanding these

causes-behind-causes is critical in developing appropriate

responses to reduce pollution. Broad-based awareness of the sources

and impacts of pollution - involving a number of stakeholders on

the water continuum - is also important to effect lasting

solutions. You can start by using green cleaners and
