Usage of chemical fertilizers and pesticides year after year hardens even soft & fertile soil which becomes salty white as a result of mineral extraction… Due to hardening of the soil, the rainwater falling on chemically ploughed farms does not seep inside, but floods the farms & eventually washes away chemicals to the nearby rivers or wells, thereby contaminating them.

Septic systems also introduce nitrogen pollution into ground and surface waters. Consequences can be as bad or worse than pathogens.
