Water pollution affects plant and organisms living in these bodies of water. In almost all cases the effect is damaging not only to individual species and population but also to the natural biological communities water pollution is any chemical physical or biological change in the quality of water that has a harmful effect on any living things that drinks or uses. When humans drink polluted water it often has serious effect on their health. There are several classes of water pollutants. The first are disease causing agents. These are bacteria, viruses, protozoa that enter sewage system and untreated waste. A second category of water pollutants is oxygen demanding waste. Waste that can be decomposed by oxygen requiring bacteria. When large population of decomposing bacteria are converting these waste it can deplete oxygen levels in the water. Thus causes other organisms in the water, such as fish to die.
