Catalyst 300 – Water Pollution

Industrial and agricultural wastes threaten the integrity of our water resources. Fertilizers, persistent organic pollutants, pharmaceuticals, plastics, and other pollutants found in bodies of water affect both human and ecosystem health. Aging infrastructure responsible for heavy metal pollution in American cities is particularly threatening to the health and wellbeing of children. The goal of this challenge is to address the causes and consequences of water pollution worldwide.
