Why is it important to keep salts of our water?

If there is too much salt in the water it can affect the plants and wildlife. Water filtering systems in water districts do the best they can to reduce salts in the water that they filter and allowed to go back out into the environment. Salts in this case mean contaminants that they cannot remove. The salts get in the wastewater from everyday activities. Water softener salt, hand and dish soaps and detergents that are used for washing close are culprits. If the residue from these salts and pollutants get too built up in an area that depends on irrigated water, the land that crops and plants are grown on will not be able to sustain those plants. You can cut down on the amount of salt some pollutants that you contribute to the waterways by making choices in your purchases and usage of those household products. Water softeners use a lot of salt if you have the kind that is salt-based. There are water softeners and use a different system without salt or that are not regenerating. If you use fabric softeners in your water, a better choice would be to use dryer sheets to soft and your clothes. When you mop floors try doing it with plain water or use less cleaner fluid in the water. You can also use the mopping pads that you can throw out instead of buckets of water. Even if you reduce what you put into the water by a small amount, that will help the groundwater. Mama Nono
