The salt in the water is the salt the melt ice on the road to keep us safe but harms the water.
Most chemicals harm the animals as well. the chemical that hurts the fish the most is DDT.
DDT is found around manufacturing plant Chemical plant and found in pesticides.
Our government is even poisoning us with rocket fuel also known as perchlorate. It harms women when they are pregnant. The chemical trigger a thyroid deficiency, and when this happens they need to give surgery to pregnant women.
About 81 percent of fresh water is polluted.
Also oil is very common as well in water. As most people know about the big oil spill in the gulf. It killed millions of animals. When people are trying to get rid of oil they sometimes pollute water more.

My point of view is that i think we should think of our actions before we do the action like thowing a piece of trash in to a water body.
