As a result of industry, the Derwent River, which is a tidal river in Tasmania, is polluted to the extent that the councils and State Government are forced to place these signs.

Sadly, it is unlikely these same industries will be closed or prevented from continuing their pollution in the near future.

I feel this image clearly shows the impact of humans on the environment, especially waterways, through heavy industry.

Without this image being published, this pollution of the Derwent River will not stop and ultimately result in a dead river with little to no wildlife.
