Pollution

VISUAL POLLTIONVisual pollution is an aesthetic issue, referring to the impacts of pollution that impair one's ability to enjoy a vista or view. The term is used broadly to cover visibility, limits on the ability to view distant objects, as well as the more subjective issue of visual clutter, structures that intrude upon otherwise "pretty" scenes, as well as graffiti and other visual defacement.

WATER POLLTIONSoap from washing your car at home pollutes. Soap and dirt from washing your car can flow through our storm drains and ditches and end up in our streams untreated. Oil and antifreeze from leaking cars pollutes. When it rains, water runs over the ground and picks up oil, antifreeze, and other pollutants and carries them to our streams and bays.

LIGHT POLLUTIONLight pollution is the brightening of the night sky inhibiting the visibility of stars and planets by the use of improper lighting of communities. An example of what causes light pollution are street lamps that shine light in all directions, instead of with a hood to point light downward toward the street.

AIR POLLUTIONAir pollution is the contamination of air by smoke and harmful gases, mainly oxides of carbon, sulfur, and nitrogen. Some examples of air pollution include exhuast fumes from vehicles and the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil or gas.
