Causes of River Pollution?

Answer

The major causes of river pollution include garbage that is tossed into the river rather than recycled or placed in landfills. River pollution is also caused by manufacturing processes, especially those located near the river. This pollution can also come from oil that leaks from boats and ships and human waste that is dumped into the river rather than sent through a treatment plant or septic system. River pollution can be controlled with careful treatment of sewage and new and more modern waste disposal systems.
