We need to be worried about the increasing shortage of drinkable water and water pollution on Earth. The government issued a ban on the use of hosepipe at the beginning of summer to reduce water waste. Simple things like changing the basic habits in our homes to cut down on our daily use of water can also help. Environment is the surroundings and influences on living things including humans.
Wetlands can only handle so much of these pollutants, and with the major habitat loss that has completely changed the dynamics of these once seasonal wetlands, can only limit the ability for these wetlands to filter as much of the pollution as possible. There are not enough wetlands in Roseville anymore to have any significant affect to dilute the polluted water and clean it properly for the wetlands to sustain healthy ecosystems. Wetlands are crucial for water, because they filter out the harmful waterborne pollutants and damaging nutrients before they can reach rivers, streams, and lakes. (EPA 2008) We drink from these places and have a responsibility to keep these wetlands intact to ensure they work as they are supposed to. With the recent surge of construction all over Roseville, especially along Route 65, many of the important wetlands have been replaced by buildings, and roads that are pollution sources producing runoff that flows directly into the remaining wetland habitat.
Europeans were used to these illnesses so they didn’t get sick, but indigenous peoples had never been exposed to these diseases before so many of them became sick and died They live what is called a sustainable existence, meaning they use the land without doing harm to the plants and animals that also call the rainforest their home.

Yolanda Holman February 17, 2014 English 112 Mr. R. Lang Why isn’t water free? In the world that we live there are many different natural resources that accompany us in everyday life. Most of these resources we need to live on a daily basis.

To build the Dam, many houses and residences had to be relocated and many people had to leave their homes. There were also old Egyptian structures that had to be carefully moved to avoid destruction from the new path of the river.
Water quality and contamination SCI 207: Dependence of man on the environment 7 April 2014 Water Quality and Contamination Introduction Body Paragraph #1 - Background: All of mankind relies on potable public or private drinking water supply to survive. “Testing of water quality on a regular basis is, therefore, an important part of maintaining a safe and reliable source” (Borah, Bhuyan, & Sarma, 2010). As stated by the World Health Organization (WHO), “Catastrophic events can result in periods of very degraded source water quality and greatly decreased efficiency in many processes, or even system failure, greatly increasing the likelihood of a disease outbreak (2011). Body Paragraph # 2 - Objective: The purpose of this study is to show the importance of having a uncontaminated water supply. People may contract serious illnesses or even worse, die from drinking contaminated water.
