Agri­cul­tur­al pol­lu­tion is not the only source of water con­t­a­m­i­na­tion. Sewage, indus­tri­al pol­lu­tion, and residues from auto­mo­bile exhaust all are swept down­stream into rivers and ulti­mate­ly the ocean.

Video Sum­ma­ry: Mod­ern soci­ety has inter­fered with the nat­ur­al water cycle for cen­turies. Pol­lu­tion from agri­cul­tur­al, res­i­den­tial, and indus­tri­al sources has con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed rivers and oceans, and prob­lems with water man­age­ment have caused aquifers and reser­voirs to become deplet­ed. This video pro­pos­es poten­tial solu­tions to improve han­dling of water in the future.
