Water Pollution

Water, water, every where,

Nor any drop to drink.

  • When Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote these famous lines in his "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" over two centuries ago, he wouldn't, in his wildest dreams, have dreamt that these lines would assume such prophetic significance in this twenty first century.
  • With two thirds of the earth's surface covered by water and the human body consisting of 75 percent of it, it is evidently clear that water is one of the prime elements responsible for life on earth. Water circulates through the land just as it does through the human body, transporting, dissolving, replenishing nutrients and organic matter, while carrying away waste material.
  • Contrary to the past, our recent developed technological society has become indifferent to this miracle of life. Our natural heritage (rivers, seas and oceans) has been exploited, mistreated and contaminated.


The Truth about Potable Water

  • Potable water is water which is fit for consumption by humans and other animals. It is also called drinking water, in a reference to its intended use. Water may be naturally potable, as is the case with pristine springs, or it may need to be treated in order to be safe.
  • Our drinking water today, far from being pure, contains some two hundred deadly commercial chemicals. Add to that bacteria, viruses, inorganic minerals (making the water hard) and you have a chemical cocktail that is unsuitable (if not deadly) for human consumption.
