  • Anthropogenic – man-made / caused by humans
  • Transcript

    • 1. Water Pollution Anthropogenic ( man made) causes Std IX
    • 2. Some Pollutants Sewage Solid waste Heavy metals
    • 3. What do you think this image depicts? Source: http://desip.igc.org/populationmaps.html accessed November 2008
    • 4. WATER STRESS Every item that we use needs water for production Domestic bathing, flushing, washing, cooking, drinking… Agriculture People require food to eat Industry Increase demand for goods Increase in Population Power water evaporation from reservoirs of large hydro power projects
    • 5. 'It's not just excess consumption. Man is creating further water stress by polluting fresh water sources.'
    • 6.
        • Run off
        • from agricultural
        • fields
        • Air pollutants
        • dissolve in
        • rainwater
        • Untreated
        • industrial
        • wastes
      WATER POLLUTION
        • Tourism and religion

    • 10. More food required to feed the growing millions' Increase in Population Converting forests into croplands Fewer Forests Water Pollution Fertilizers and pesticides
    • 11. Fewer forests Topsoil washed out into freshwater sources and reduced recharge of water into the ground
    • 12. Agriculture Fertilizers and pesticides easily dissolve in water. They enter surface water sources through rainwater and irrigation runoff and also percolate into the ground to contaminate groundwater sources. World agricultural area under irrigation Global fertilizer consumption Source: http://maps.grida.no/go/graphic/global_fertilizer_consumption , cartographer: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal Source: http://www.earthpolicy.org/Updates/2008/Update72_data.htm#fig11
    • 13.
      • Overgrazing – soil washed out into freshwater sources
      • Animal bathing in freshwater sources
      • Animal faeces pollutes water and soil
      • Water pollution caused by
      • food processing industries
      Increased Demand for Animal Products
    • 14.
      • Clothes we wear – dyes and bleaches
      • Paper, paper, paper everywhere
      • Leather bags and shoes
      • Batteries
      • Metal plating
      • Paints
      • Plastics
      • Pharmaceuticals
      INCREASED INDUSTRIALISATION Let’s look around us ….. Increase demand for goods Increase in Population More Industrialisation All these industries are highly water polluting
    • 15. Increased mining for Raw Materials The Damodar river travels through 6 coal fields, 183 coal mines, 28 iron ore mines, 33 limestone mines, 5 copper ore mines, 84 mica mines and Numerous graphite, silver and uranium extracting units . ‘ Water in this river is polluted beyond repair ’ Mining is a highly polluting industry Increased industrialization results in
    • 16. Increased solid waste generation
      • Lifestyle changes
      • Use and throw culture
      • Higher aspirations
      • Change in packaging
      • Disregard for natural resources
      • Inadequate waste management systems
    • 17. Waste dumped in surface water bodies Waste dumped in open landfills – toxic materials leach into soil and groundwater Waste burnt – air pollutants dissolve in rainwater and pollute surface water sources or seep into ground water aquifers Increased solid waste generation water pollution
    • 18.
        • Lakes, tanks and ponds being destroyed. Land filled for construction purposes.
        • Unsustainable extraction of groundwater in urban areas, affecting groundwater quality.
        • Receive sewage that cannot be handled by sewage
        • treatment plants.
        • Disposal of solid and liquid wastes
        • above or into groundwater aquifers.
      Additional stress in urban areas
    • 19. Tourism and water pollution
      • Hotels
      • Laundry – detergents, bleach, hot water
      • Landscaping – fertilizers, pesticides
      • Cleaning and washing
      • Waste generation
      • Kitchen
      • Travelers
      • Sanitation
      • Bathing in rivers
      • Waste generation (use and throw)
      Most tourism is close to water sources and areas of rich biodiversity
    • 20. Religion and Water pollution Bathing in holy rivers More than10 million people bathe in the Ganga daily! During the annual Kumbh Mela, more than a million people take a dip in Allahabad alone! Dead bodies Prayer materials Idol immersion Paints contain many heavy metals
    • 21. Conflicts and Water Pollution
      • Production of arms
      • Death toll
      • Bombs – heavy metals
      • Municipal services (water supply,
      • sanitation, waste mgmt)
      • don’t function in areas of conflict
    • 22.
      • “ If you had a bottle of life-preserving fluid on which your life depended, would you pour into it all your sewage and rubbish, along with any other poisonous chemicals you could find? And yet, that is exactly what we are doing to our water supply – all over the world.”
      Source: http://www.unep.org/geo2000/pacha/fresh/fresh.htm This is what a young person like you has to say: Does Man Pollute Water?
    • 23. Not just Fresh Water , We are polluting our Oceans too

    • 26. A game to check how much you have learnt Play LINK TO THE GAME
    • 27. Divide the class into 5 teams. Team A selects 2 people who will guess the answer. These 2 people turn their face to the wall or go out of the room, so that they can’t see the clue. Play
    • 28. Team A have to act out the clue for the 2 guessers. Either all members of Team A can act it out (very boisterous, but all children are involved) or a representative is selected to do the acting. The other members of Team A (and the rest of the class) see the clue.
    • 29. If the guessers got the right answer in 30 secs, they get 5 points If the guessers get the right answer in 30 secs, they get 3 points Otherwise  The chance then goes to Team B and so on. Rules: No mouthing of words
    • 30. Round 1 Team A – Agriculture Team B – Domestic use Team C – Reservoir Team D – Population Team E – Industrial production
    • 31. Round 2 Team A – Energy Demand Team B – Over exploitation Team C – Urbanization Team D – Lifestyle Team E – Lake destruction
    • 32. Round 3
      • Team E – Domestic waste water
      Team A – Fertilizer runoff Team B – Sewage disposal Team C – Industrial waste water Team D – Pesticides
    • 33. Round 4 Team A – Idol immersion Team B – Tourism Team C – mining Team D – Conflicts Team E – Animal products
