Project Title and Description

"Wastewater and its Effects on an Individual’s Health                                                    Goal 6

Course: BSC 2010

Instructor: Catalina Aristizábal

My project aims to bring awareness to the lack of clean water around the world to many. I specifically focused on the effects that wastewater has on an individual’s health. While this is a problem that many face in developing countries, this is also an issue seen in developed nations. As wastewater contaminates clean water resources, many are put at risk of contracting deadly bacteria, viruses, parasites, and chemicals. As a result, children and people with weak immune systems are put at risk of many preventable deaths.
