In the Netherlands, we must do our best to improve the quality of natural water. That’s what researchers from environmental organizations say. They have looked at the water in rivers and lakes. They found out that there are still too many harmful substances in it.
This concerns, for example, substances that farmers use on their fields and substances in waste water from companies. If too much of it ends up in nature, the water gets worse. The researchers want the government to do more about this.
Help with the investigation
Research is also being carried out into how things are going with smaller bodies of water, such as puddles, ditches and lakes. Children can help with that. The Catch the Water Monsters project started yesterday. This allows you to check the water in your area yourself.
