Water is very essential for all forms of life. Most of the time our civilizations were generated on the water bank. However, in recent times, the conditions of water quality are very badly affected. The reasons for this due to increase in population growth, rapid industrialization and agriculture methods resulting deterioration of water quality. Water pollution is contamination of water bodies such as river, oceans, ponds, lakes, etc. because of introduction of unwanted and harmful toxic pollutants from various sources such as industrials wastes, volcanic eruptions, floods, mining activities, domestic wastes, pesticides and fertilizers etc. The water pollution has many negative consequences such as destruction of marine habitat, development of various fatal human diseases such as cholera, malaria, tuberculosis, etc. Therefore, water pollution is indeed a major and serious global topic of concern. Water Pollution matters because it harms the environment on which we depend. Destroying the environment ultimately reduces the quality of our own lives. In this present article, an attempt is being made to review the various steps should be taken on personal basis to tackle the problem of water pollution.
