How are humans affecting water quantity/availability?
Wasting water, Effluent and sewage, disease, litter, no water storage, increase of population, over abstraction, pollution
1 of 5
Over abstraction
Taking too much water out of the system - lowering the level of an aquifer or river. Taking out more than can be replaced - unsustainable.
2 of 5
Aquifer
Underground water store (usually an area of permeable rock, like chalk, surrounded by or on top of impermeable rock, like granite.)
3 of 5
Growth of LEDC's and how they cope with water pollution
LEDC's have less water than MEDC's. As the countries become more Economically Developed, water pollution increases because they are becoming an industrial country. As they become more economically developed, they deal with the rising water pollution.
4 of 5
River Rhine Action Plan
Strict limits to factory effluents, New Sewage Treatments, Heavy fines for pollution.
