7 sungai terkotor di dunia

1. Citarum river, Indonesia

2. Yamuna River, India

3. Buriganga river, Bangladesh

4. Yellow river from Lanzhou, China

The Yellow River is China’s second longest river and is the main water supply for millions of people in northern China. But the river with primarily Lanzhou which is the prime source of drinking water for the two million local residences, is heavily polluted with oil spills taking place every now and then due to industrial contamination.

5. Marilao river, Philippines

Plastic wrappers, rubber slippers, banana trunks and a bloated carcass of a dog, that’s few of the things you may find floating in the Marilao river. The waters contain toxic chemicals such as chromium, cadmium, copper and arsenic making the water very dangerous. Despite campaigns by the local government and imposing fines, households still throw their garbage, and factories release their effluents intothe river resulting in highly contaminated water.

6. Ganges river, India

Ganga is the most sacred river for Hindus that emerges from gangotri glacier. An estimated 2,000,000 people ritually bathe daily inthe river, inspite of being unsafe as chemical wastes, sewage and corpses remains float fearlessly across the water body.

7. Songhua river, China
