The definition of water pollution is the release of substances into surface groundwater or the lakes or other waters. To the point where the normal functioning ecosystem gets disturbed and interfered with heavily. These substances don’t belong in the water’s primary ecosystem and that’s why it’s called pollution. In most countries, groundwater is connected tot he sewage and should be treated with care. There should be a clear waste treatment process. In this article, you will read what water pollution levels are in 2020.
Water pollution during the lockdown
It’s still hard to make conclusions about water pollution during the lockdown. Some industrial companies that use a lot of water are now closed. This industrial use of water means that less pollution gets in the groundwater. However, most of the world population is at home the whole day long. So more water is used at home.
Sky pollution during the lockdown
What is an interesting phenomenon, is that sky pollution has decreased during the lockdown. As the coronavirus has the world in its grip, we can see that the pandemic temporarily cleaned the skies. However, some recent measurements show that air pollution isn’t as low as expected. Most people think that there are now lesser cars on the road, the air is getting cleaner by default. This is just not the case because cars aren’t the only polluter of air, and declining levels of NO2 don’t show yet.
Al land all we can say that pollution hasn’t decreased dramatically in 2020. We hope to see a further decline in the pollution levels even after the lockdown.
