Water Quality, a Local and Global Issue
Various health risks surround water supply and water quality and there are often geographical differences in these risks. In this Discussion, you consider the environmental health implications of water for populations around the world, as well as the risks that come with recreational water use. Your Instructor uses the Module 4 Discussion Rubric to grade this Discussion.
Discuss with your colleagues a recreational water concern, such as polluted swimming beaches, watercraft hazards, or drowning. Some things you may consider as you discuss this topic: Provide an example of a specific recreational water use situation that has presented a public health problem and suggest possible prevention measures and solutions. How many people might be impacted by this problem and are there specific demographics associated with the risks? What are the challenges and barriers to implementing these solutions? Be sure to provide the supporting resources for the examples that you bring up.
