Abstract

Water contamination is a national and worldwide problem that affects everyone on the planet. Humans, as well as every other living creature on the planet, are suffering the worst consequences of dirty water. The contaminating of natural waters by chemical, physical, radioactive, or infectious microbiological contaminants is known as water pollution. Water pollution can occur in a variety of ways. Invasive impacts of water pollution on ecosystems include the death of organisms on a large scale, the decline of biodiversity, and the loss of ecosystem services. Varying chemicals have different effects based on where they are used and what they are made of. Contaminated water is a source of disease transmission for bacteria, viruses, and parasites such as typhoid fever, cholera, encephalitis, poliomyelitis (poliomyelitis), hepatitis, skin infections, and gastroenteritis. People frequently get water-borne illnesses such as cholera and TB in areas where screening and purification methods are inadequate. Every year, A record of 3-5 million cholera cases were reported, with 100,000-120,000 people dying as a result of the epidemic. People in affluent nations continue to suffer from the health consequences of water pollution, even in areas where better water purification systems are available.
