California’s Social Issue, Water Pollution 2
Slide I
California’s Social Issue

centralized economic impacts can be formidably felt through her jurisdiction. Water pollution is
the derivative of many non-Point and Point sources of pollution contributions. This indicates that
pollution sources are many and wide spread, increasing the rate and amounts of pollution
elements within our water supplies. Farms/Lawns/Golf Courses, Residential Neighborhoods,
Urban Run-Off, Construction Sites, and Deforestation are some of these contributing human
activities. Additionally, Animal Feed Lots, Sewage Treatment Plants, Factories/Disposal Sites,
Industrial Manufactures, and Energy Production Facilities also release excessive amount of
destructive ingredients into our water ways. Pollutants that are recognizable within the water
supply as a result of the above mentioned industrial activities include toxic chemicals, pathogens
and waterborne diseases, nutrient pollution, increasing the levels of sediment. As a result of this
wide spread contributions, pollutants such as fertilizer, herbicides, pesticides, bacteria, eroded
soils, and acid drainage, plus industrial waste has been located, collected, and analyzed. Regional
