Effects on Health - Water Pollution

Water pollution deteriorates the quality of water used for drinking, bathing, swimming, recreation and irrigation. Water contaminated with sewage has foul smell and creates unhygienic conditions in the surroundings and affects our health. Drinking water polluted with sewage is a source of viruses, bacteria, protozoa and worms.

Water-borne infectious diseases like cholera, dysentery, typhoid, and jaundice and worm infection are still the major public health problems in developing countries.
