How does an increase in population result in river pollution?

Asked by Topperlearning User 26th May 2015, 11:05 AM
Answered by Expert

An increase in population results in the growing demand of water for agricultural, industrial and domestic use. Industries discharge liquid and untreated wastes into rivers. Continuous domestic and industrial discharge of wastes into rivers not only affects the quality of the river water but also the self-cleansing capacity of rivers.
