Agricultural Activities That May Contaminate Your Surface Water Source

Over the years, the rising population has increased the demand for food. To meet this increased demand, agricultural producers have adopted advanced production techniques and practices, and this has led to an increase in pollutants contaminating land and water sources. The proliferation of pollutants has prompted attempts to minimise the quantity of contaminants in water sources so as to enhance overall water quality. A good example of such efforts is that farmers are being encouraged to have their agricultural water tested to ensure it is suitable for its intended use.
