Preventions of Air Pollution We should use Chimneys which has Electro static Precipitator &vehicle should be checked time to time.
Remedies to check Water Pollution We should stop mixing pollutants in the natural water resources to increase flora & fauna.
Stop Acid Deposition To maintain ecological balance acid Deposition should be checked which creates loss to aquatic life & affects forest growth.
Our class can make a Difference!!!!
