Environmental protection

Environmental protection and management should attract a lot of attention these days. There must be desirable development in the face of alarming rate of natural resource degradation which greatly hampers their optimal utilisation. There must be special attention given to such environmental issues in rural areas where people have low awareness. When waste water emanating from municipal sewage, industrial effluent, agricultural and land runoffs find their way either to ground water reservoirs or other surface water sources, the quality of water gets affected and makes it unfit for use. The natural balance is disturbed when concentrated discharges of waste water is not controlled. This is because the cleansing forces of nature cannot do their job in proportion to the production of filthy matter. There must be special boards formed in every town in all nations to ensure that such effects to our surroundings are not caused.
