Water Pollution In the Euphrates
Site Map

    During the Persian Gulf War Iraq burned many oil wells for a period of three weeks straight.  After Saudi Arabian officials put the fires out the oil and water evaporated into the air together.  This mixture eventually rained back down on the Middle East disrupting ecosystems and spoiling food webs.  Drinking water was contaminated and fish kills increased tremendously.
