Contaminants and pollutants tend to spread out within our oceans to form a state equilibrium, which mitigates some of the effects of human activity on a global scale. However, our river ports are the entities that have to endure the lasting effects of toxic waste distribution and hazardous practices.

Apart from the development of harmful bacteria and unsafe algae, river ports also have to struggle in the midst of ceaseless eutrophication, which occurs when excessive run-off causes a nutrient overload in adjoining waterways. As a result, the local aquatic wildlife tends to be overcome by unprecedented plant growth and begins to die off due to a lack of oxygen, which throws the entire ecosystem off balance.
