Water pollution endangers biodiversity
Duwamish River suffers from water pollution because over 600 million gallons waste and storm water is drained off into the river. Bacteria and chemicals contaminate the water. Fish are killed and humans are at risk.
The entire food web is affected if aquatic animals are exposed to water pollution. Birds won't get food so they die or move to a new habitat.
