As you can probably tell, India is battling some serious groundwater pollution.
What’s causing it?
– Human and animal waste
– Using chemical fertilizers to maximize food production
– Dumping of garbage and pollution in river water
All this affects our health causing millions of cases of diarrhoea, typhoid and viral hepatitis!
Some 650 cities/towns and 65% of our villages are drinking contaminated groundwater. Adding to this already toxic situation, 90% of India’s groundwater has already been used up and it’s going to take the land years to generate more.
Basically, we’re completely screwed!
