“How can rivers become polluted?”
Rivers are one of the original lifebloods of civilizations. Cities as grand as Babylon, Moscow, and New Orleans were built due to their proximity to important rivers for easy access to commerce. In time, Industrial facilities would be built so supplies could be shipped off without much hassle. However, the increased industrial activity led to River Pollution, where the channels have become washed with waste and toxins. This has the potential to spill into nearby drinking water, making it something that governments should take note of.
