water is the most abundant of all naturally occurring substances on earth. it is the basis for all life and for all of human civilization. despite the fact that we use water on a daily basis for so many essential activities, it is also a vital source of pollution. in many parts of the world, access to safe water is limited and in the very poorest countries, the lack of clean water leads to high rates of death and disease. the problem of water pollution is more complex than it first appears. the source of the pollution can be the water itself, the ground around the source of the water, the air around the source of the water, or other materials or chemicals used to treat the water before it is used. the methods of treating the water can also be sources of pollution. very often, the source of the pollution is not identified. in this case, it is often impossible to know the source of the problem.
