As a result, the effect on such aquatic life leads to their death hence the negative effects of water pollution (Atkinson).Changes in water temperatures and chemical presence within the water bodies directly affect the aquatic life through killing the living things within such water bodies.Water is one of the essentials of life thus taking polluted water leads to health deterioration leading to spending resources in treatment and prevention of diseases.On the hand, chemical substances released from factories and industries cause water pollution.Many pollutants leading to water pollution include pathogens, chemicals, and thermal contaminations.
