Transcript of Pollution Around PVHS Campus

The pollution in this photo is the chemicals and other liquid waste that autoshop discharges from their area. It is point pollution.
Pollution of these types is typically found in industrial areas, as well as around similar autoshop facilities.
This interferes with ecosystem services by polluting the soil it touches, making it much less effective at sustaining life. Animals might walk through it and touch bodies of water, contaminating them as well.
Organisms can become sick from ingesting these pollutants, or nauseous from smelling them. The pollution in this picture is the water running out of the PV Pond onto the sidewalk. It would be considered liquid point pollution.
This type of pollution can be found anywhere that water is being wasted, such as broken water mains or overflowing watering systems.
It interferes with ecosystem services by preventing organisms that can actually use the water, such as the fish in the pond or plants, from using it. These organisms may then die or become ill due to dehydration fro the lack of water. Pollution Around PVHS Campus This pollution is a generic piece of trash
within throwing distance of a trashcan. It represents solid non-point pollution.
This pollution is commonly found near, in, or
around trashcans and in cities.
This pollution interferes with natural capital
by detracting from the view of the environment and polluting any surface it happens to drift on.
Potentially, this trash could harm organisms
by landing on plants and blocking their sun, flying to a sewer and ending up in a water supply. By: Kayla,Heather,Abdel Plastic Bag
Interferes in the road and cars. Clogging draining systems.
Non-point pollution & solid
Streets, roads, water
Animals might mistake it for food. Ex. - the turtle Green House Work Cited The greenhouse releases greenhouse gasses such as CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) , CH4( Methane), N2O (Nitrous Oxide) daily. This is atmosphere pollution of a point form.
This pollution comes from many
sources, this is just one of them.
It doesn't interfere directly with
ecosystem services, but over time these gases accumulate to further global climate change.
Global climate change, an effect of
these gases, has the potential to kill or damage many hundreds of ecosystems worldwide. http://epa.gov/climatechange/ghgemissions/ So hat are greenhouse gasses?
Gases that trap heat in the atmosphere The pollution in this image is the decomposing concrete of this walkway. It is solid point pollution.
Typically, this sort of pollution can be found anywhere there is concrete, to varying degrees of severity.
This decomposing concrete interferes with this ecosystem's services by intermixing with the natural soil of the area; plants that proceed to be planted here will miss out on nutritional soil that is displaced by the concrete.
Bigger chunks of concrete could pin down plants that were trying to grow. The pollution in this image is the fertilizer
that has been spread on top of this grass seed and dirt area. It is a form of solid point pollution.
This pollution is found at home improvement
stores and in the fields that it is harvested from in the form of manure. It interferes with natural capital by preventing students from standing under the nearby tree and releasing an unpleasant odor into the air.
Potentially, this fertilizer could harm birds
that try to peck at the grass seeds underneath, over-fertilize the soil for future plants, and be so weighty that the grass underneath would have a hard time growing. The pollution in this picture is the fence
separating the PV Pond from the rest of the school. It would be considered solid point pollution.
This type of pollution is found many places,
but it is mostly justified by the reason of protection. It interferes with ecosystem services by cutting the areas that would usually be enjoyed off from the organisms that would ordinarily use them.
Humans and other medium sized animals are
affected by this pollution.
