Sediment Pollution
September 19th, 2009
Poor light quality is the first consequence of high sediment concentration in the water: without sun light, water plants cannot develop properly due to the impossibility to make the photosynthesis and they will not provide enough food for the fish. Moreover, studies indicate that suspended sediments increase the water temperature, making the habitat unfriendly for animals and plants alike. And even if the sediment settled, it would still risk the evolution of fish eggs that get suffocated at the bottom of the rivers or lakes.
