The most significant problem with water pollution is that it endangers amphibians (and other genus) and can lead to extinction of various species without adequate steps taken to mitigate water pollution’s reoccurrences.
There are many different types of water pollutants which threaten species. These include introduction of pathogens and chemicals which are dispersed into bodies of water from many different sources. Pipes, storm drains, factor-based discharges and sewer systems maintain the capability to contaminate various bodies of water. Specific contaminants, and the most common, include sodium, iron, benzene, and harmful pathogens. One of the most significant problems is that water-polluting substances tend to deplete oxygen levels in a body of water or cause a phenomenon known as turbidity, a situation in which vital light is obstructed, thereby disrupting the capability of plants to grow and even causing blockage of a water-dwelling species’ gills. When harmful chemicals are introduced into these bodies of water, it can promote the production of various diseases, increase the acidity of the water, cause dramatic shifts in temperature which are not conducive to longevity for species, and affect the general quality of the water which impacts the reproductive cycles of water-dwelling creatures.
A common water pollutant is benzene, which is often introduced into bodies of water as a result of industrial activity and through waste disposal of different consumer products such as glue and detergents. To illustrate the potential harm that benzene causes, a study was conducted in an industrial environment dedicated to producing nanotechnologies. The researchers recruited 121 different workers and performed a longitudinal study over five years. The recruited sample population was asked to allow recurring blood samples to be taken
