Water Pollution

Challenge #19 in the WaterWorld series. Hosted by Deleted pending purge.
Challenge has finished
An extremely widespread and actual theme, especially photographically. Its appearance comes from various sources. To name just main ones, there is lack of education and/or responsibility (unawareness of consequences), criminal negligence ("not my job" or "it's cheaper than recycling"), intentional (as in "For Fun & Profit) and natural (as a result of some cataclysm or other). Add your 100 views! PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES CAREFULLY. I hate having to disqualify an otherwise interesting photo just because of an oversight.
