Ideally it disperses, so the concentration of problematic chemicals becomes so low that it no longer constitutes pollution. The removal of plant cover not only eliminates wildlife habitats and food for wildlife, but it also degrades the soil by leaving it barren and without the roots of plants to hold it in place, vulnerable to erosion. Conclusion — Our River Our Responsibility River management is regarded as a complex task and early planning is much needed to ensure that our beloved rivers are kept free from any form of pollution. Human intervention poses a significant threat to the natural environment of this country. It is a vital resource that becomes increasingly polluted and scarce throughout the nation. Ecosystems and landscapes are dramatically altered by human development, including the construction of roads and damming of rivers.
This can cause respiratory disease, chronic heart disease, can weaken the immune system and can also affect the functioning of lungs. Not only the government should play the role, parent also need to do they job. This scale below shows the health classifications used by the Malaysian government. Soil erosion Photo: Soil erosion turns fields into deserts. Or people might get their water from rivers supplied by groundwater contaminated by landfill sites, mine workings, or otherwise polluted land some distance away. Efforts to remediate or clean up such sites will continue for years to come. The fermentation emitted from the mud balls will alleviate and destroy the Ammonia Nitrogen found in human effluents and sewerage leakages into the water system.
But because we use i most time, so we have make much trash of it. After years of development, it is now the largest industrial corridor of the northern region. Land pollution is an equally serious problem and often also contributes to water pollution through percolating down to the water tables or erosion runoff into open waters. Statistics showed the number of unpolluted rivers increased in the five years period of time from 12 critically polluted rivers, 34 rivers of moderate level of pollution and 74 rivers that were categorised as clean in year 2000. The toxic chemicals can lodge in the ground sediment of the stream, adversely affecting the aquatic life that sustains itself by sheltering and feeding there. Insisting on organic food would be a very big start to reducing the adverse effects of agriculture on land.
First of all government should always create an awareness campaign to the public. Households generate hazardous waste as well, including paints and solvents, motor oil, fluorescent lights, aerosol cans, and ammunition. The effects of air pollution on human health can vary widely depending on the pollutant, according to Hugh Sealy, professor and director of the environmental and occupational health track at the Department of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, St. The upstream of Juru River consist of two rivers namely Permatang Rawa River and Rambai Rver. Clean the lint filter in the dryer every time. We imagine these basic foundations of our planet to be a kind of pristine, internal wilderness—but often that's far from the case. The total population of the Juru River basin is around 362400, and the area is mainly home to industrial, residential and commercial activities.
Although Earth might seem a pretty big place, only about a third of its surface is covered in land, and there are now over seven billion people trying to survive here. But there are even more serious problems how land pollution affects the environment. It can used as a material in artwork, the black pigment and ink, form alloys with iron too. On top of that, Bukit Minyak area is also well-known for its cockle-breeding industry industrialisation. The Juru River is the salvation for Kuala Sungai Juru where most of the people in Bukit Minyak are fishermen and their livelihoods are very much dependent on fisheries. It has been a neglected priority for times but it is not too late to kick a start for protecting and rejuvenating our rivers in the country. According to Professor Sham Sani in his environmental reports 1979, 1980, 1987a, 1989 , pollution problem in this region can be serious, particularly when the climate of this part of the world has a high potential of air pollution.
You might think a mine would only remove things from the land, causing little or no pollution, but mining isn't so simple. Air pollution occurs when things that aren't normally there are added to the air. They were disposed of not only in landfills, but through and by burning. So the scale of the problem and its ultimate effects are impossible to determine. Pollution is the process of making land, water, air or other parts of the environment dirty and not safe or suitable to use. Here, scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee are testing whether soils contaminated with toxic chemicals such as polychlorinated biphenyls can be cleaned up by bacteria. Facts about Land Pollution 1: the causes Can you guess the cause of land pollution? It occurs when water is contaminated by such substances as human and animal wastes, toxic chemicals, metals and oils.
This paper reviews the results of the ambient air quality monitoring and studies related to air pollution and health impacts. The minister also announced that he would be meeting his Indonesian counterpart this Wednesday to discuss about solutions to overcome the haze problem. Completed landfills are often used as public parks or playgrounds. Lower the thermostat on your water heater to 120 degrees and wrap it with an insulated blanket. The air pollutant may be carcinogenic e.
There's simply no getting away from waste: our ultimate fate as humans is to die and become waste products that have to be burned or buried! Secure landfills must have at least 3 metres 10 feet of soil between the bottom of the landfill and underlying bedrock or twice that required for municipal solid-waste landfills , a final impermeable cover when completed, and a double bottom liner for increased safety. Land developers capitalizing on urban sprawl cut down forests, as does the agricultural industry in order to increase the amount of land for growing crops. Different clustering may suggest a different contamination source of metals. According to , 783 million people do not have access to clean water and around 2. Having said that, it's important to remember that urbanization, when it works, can also help people to live very efficiently. The plants die and their decomposition leads to less oxygen in the water.
This human activity appears more than a little reckless when considering that it takes 500 years to naturally produce 2. And among the biggest water pollution in the country is Juru River, located in Province Wellesley. Urbanization in a number of ways, including the negative impact of construction on soil, the displacement and destruction of animal and species habitat and the greater demand for waste disposal, generally meaning larger landfills removed from the city. Not surprisingly, local communities object vociferously to having nuclear waste stored anywhere near them. What makes land pollution such a problem is that land is static, so land pollution stays exactly where it is until and unless someone cleans it up. Before the industrial developments, the condition of the Juru River was not affected by any form of pollution and its water was crystal clear. Through such activities, it has certainly help to recover the water quality cleanliness and the beauty of the Juru River like what we once had before.
Pediatrics, April 2004, Volume 113, Issue Supplement 3y, May 1, 2011; and : Science Daily, May 1, 2011. Land pollution Land can become polluted by household garbage and by industrial waste. How serious is the problem? The awareness of poor indoor air quality is very low in Malaysia. The national flower of Malaysia is the , an that was introduced into the in the 12th century. Malaysian Institute for Nuclear Technology Research, Bangi Malaysia. Agriculture The world population increase and increased demand for a food supply is causing forests and grasslands to be converted to farmland.
