Where Can I Learn About Water Pollution?

Information about water pollution is available from a large variety of governmental, nonprofit and commercial sources, such as the National Resources Defense Council, the Environmental Protection Agency and National Geographic. All three sources provide published materials on their websites.

The EPA offers educational resources for students and teachers, including school curricula and activities. It also offers information on the pollution and cleanup methods for local area water supplies. The World Wildlife Fund and the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs offer both national and international information on the spread of water pollution and large-scale efforts to clean up polluted bodies of water.
