How is the river being polluted?

Many towns and factories are built near rivers so that they can use water from the river. But sometimes the water is not cleaned before it is put back into the river This dirtying of water also air and soil is called pollution.
Pollution can be in a variety of forms: Rubbish like crisp packets, newspaper and bags Oil Poisonous substances Cans, bottles and other solid objects Human waste/excrement
People are sometimes careless and throw rubbish such as bottles and crisp packets directly into rivers.

I think on reasons why it has been polluted is because of people dumping rubbish into the river. Also there are many factory’s been built near the rivers so all the waste from the factory is going straight into the rivers, not only that there are animals that live in the river so that means that the animals are getting a piece of the disaster too.
