water is one of the most important resources for all kinds of living organisms including humans.As a result,water pollution is dangerous to the health of all living beings.
Particularly,fresh water pollution can have devastating health effect as this is the source of portable water to many Nigerian communities.
Generally,the main types of water pollution include:
Agricultural based water pollution
Domestic water pollution
Industrial water pollution
oil spill water pollution
In the case of oil spillage,the factories operating primarily in the oil region are responsible for this contamination.
The activities of these companies have adversely affected the neighbouring communities.In fact,the ecology of the region where crude oil is extracted which is the Gulf of Guinea has affected the natural processes of oil dispersing which has led to a destruction of biological resources in the territorial waters of Nigeria .
Subsequently,this has affected over twenty rivers which are linked directly and indirectly to these regions.Most time,damaged pipelines are responsible for the spills that affect this area.
In terms of water pollution,the country needs to go beyond setting up an agency but to also allocate substantial amount of money into the restoration of the environment.
The government can also implement sanctions,fines and punishment for these environment degrading acts.00

Environmental issues are harmful effects of human activity on the biophysical environment. Major current environmental issues may include climate change, pollution, environmental degradation and resource depletion etc. The conservation movement lobbies for protection of endangered species and protection of any ecologically valuable natural areas, genetically modified foods and global warming.
The environmental problems like global warming, acid rain, air pollution, urban sprawl, waste disposal, ozone layer depletion, water pollution, climate change and many more affect every human, animal and nation on this planet.
In 13 Jan 2017, Air, soil, and water all have the capability to be polluted. Pollution poses a current and future threats to people and the environment. polluted air weakens the ozone layer and causes health problems. contaminated soil destroys habitats and irrigation you might remember the exxon Valdez spill in Alaska in 1989. If not, this was one of the worst oil spill in history. In the Niger Delta there has been an Exxon Valdez spill every year for 50 years. This gives the Niger Delta the unpleasant honor of being one of the most polluted places on earth.
More than 70 percent of the people of the Niger Delta rely on natural resources. They are fishermen and farmers. In 2014 the UN Environmental program(UNEP)documented the consequences of oil pollution in Ogoniland, one part of the Delta severely damaged by spills.
Environmental problems arises due to our irresponsibility towards our nation but not for solar, wind, EV’s, or batteries and we should avoid using them for that, and we can prevent environmental issues by painting your house using a latex paint. Don’t top off your gas tank. Conserve energy. Don’t burn your yard waste. Plant a tree and always park your car. These are the best ways of avoiding environmental issues. We can also solve environmental issues.
Completely turn off equipment like televisions and stereos when you are not using
them. choose energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs. save water :some simple steps can go a long time in saving water like, like turning off the tap when you are brushing your teeth or shaving. scientific assessment: Problem defined, hypothesis mode, model constructed. Risk analysis :potential effects or various interventions.
Public engagement: changing public attitudes. political considerations: implement course of action. Long term environmental management :results of action carefully monitored.10
