Why is it harmful to dispose off household wastes into water bodies?

Asked by Topperlearning User 6th January 2015, 5:21 PM

Answer:

 It is harmful to dispose off household wastes into water bodies because many detergents contain phosphates. When this phosphate comes in contact with water bodies, they lead to the rapid growth of algae. The multiplication of aquatic weeds in water bodies hinders fishing, navigation and irrigation.
