alarming water situation

2 recent articles highlight the extent of degradation of our water sources.
1. the excessive use of chemical in agriculture in punjab.
2. the result of pharma industry's callous and casual waste treatment in Hyderabad.

the story of stuff has data that 40% of US waterways are unswimmable; leave alone drinking the stuff.
we must be close to that in india.
