Governments have enacted clean water acts along with restrictions on pollution in order to prevent water pollution. They often fine or penalize companies for breaking these laws.

What can be done to improve the quality of water pollution?

I believe that the objective to which we aspire is to have less water pollution, rather than to have a better quality of pollution in our water. Pollution, by definition, is a bad thing. You cannot have good quality pollution. In any event, the primary method of reducing pollution is to stop industry from discharging toxic substances into bodies of water. This requires government regulation.
