Nutrients and their Effect on Water

Types Of Water Pollution

Nutrients are essential for plant growth and development. Many nutrients are found in wastewater and fertilisers, and these can cause excess weed and algae growth if large concentrations end up in water.


  • This can contaminate drinking water and clog filters.
  • This can be damaging to other aquatic organisms as the algae use up the oxygen in the water, leaving none for the surrounding marine life.
