Water pollution is a big problem and a large threat to our water supply. Thankfully, many people are becoming aware of this problem and are setting out to do something about it. I believe it is very important to be aware of these problems because without water, life on this planet would be impossible. It is our source of life. Therefore, we must do all we can to make sure our water is fresh and clean and that there is plenty to go around. All the organizations and programs that are working toward cleaning our water are making significant progress. There is proof of improvements all around. Still, a lot more needs to be done. People tend to take for granted that they will always have fresh water available here in the U.S. But what about all of those other countries that are not as fortunate as us? People die every day due to contaminated water supplies. This is where the real help is needed. We should do all we can to clean up our water, not only for ourselves but for others across the planet too.
