How is land polluted?

Answer:

  • Land is polluted by wastes from nuclear power plants, nuclear and weapon production facilities.
  • Dumping of wastes, especially glass, harmful chemicals, industrial effluents, packaging, salts and garbage, makes the soil useless.
  • Rainwater percolates into the soil carrying the pollutants to the ground and the groundwater also gets contaminated.
