What are some examples of soil pollutants?

Answer

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of soil pollutants. Most commonly, sewage and chemicals are the biggest problem. These are man-made problems. Natural problems occur from acid rain and air pollution that mixes with precipitation. When a chemical spill occurs, the soil is immediately contaminated and polluted. It must be removed and/or cleaned through a sifting and washing process to be reused in a safe way again. Using too much fertilizer or chemical enhancement agents also pollutes soil.
