Water Pollution in a Small Town: Case of a Community in Southwestern Ontario The ensuing paper looks at an environmental issue in a small Ontario farming community (I am electing to withhold the names of those involved) which has recently grappled with water pollution caused by run-offs originating from large industrial farming operations. The simple truth of the matter is that the pollution issue could have been avoided had local officials aggressively enforced existing laws vis-à-vis pollution. The paper will discuss how water pollution arising from farming concerns has become a serious problem in recent years and how the sort of effluent that is released from containment units is often far deadlier (because of the bacteria involved)...The end:
