The Sarno River is located in Sarno Italy. The Sarno river begins at the base of Mt. Sarno. It then empties out into the Gulf of Naples.
No technologies are being used but the one thing that will need to be given are incentives to the factories to stop dumping trash and waste in the the river.

The Sarno River is 15 miles long or 24 kilometers.
The Sarno River has been polluted for over twenty years. The pollution started building up in the late 80's and early 90's
There are 750,000 people inhabiting areas near the Sarno River.
Wild life has been effected in a horrible way. There is toxic mud on the river bed that prevents the formation of a barrier for animal and plant diffusion. There is lack of oxygen which made meadows and sea grass disappear.
