Create a 3 page essay paper that discusses Water Pollution.
In the last thirty three years, there has been an immense growth in the population of India accompanied with rapid urbanization and industrialization. All of these factors have jointly put great pressure upon the sacred River Ganges (McDermott). In 1984, in Bhopal, 27 tones of deadly methyl isocyanate gas were released by a Union Carbide pesticide plant that resulted into 20000 casualties. There has been little to no change in the regulatory climate in India ever since. Similarly, since 1990s, there has been a two-fold increase in the volume of domestic sewage which is deposited into the River Ganges. It is expected that if the same pattern continues, the volume of sewage will double in a generation.
