Water Act 1974 penalties
The Water Act 1974 is a law that helps protect our water sources from pollution and harm. Penalties are punishments that people or companies can face if they break the rules in the Water Act. For example, if a factory dumps harmful chemicals into a river, they could be fined a lot of money or even shut down. This is to make sure they stop polluting the water and keep it clean for everyone to use. One verifiable fact is that in the United States, the penalties for violating the Clean Water Act (which is similar to the Water Act) can range from thousands to millions of dollars in fines. An analogy to help understand this is imagine if you were playing a game with rules, and if you break one of the rules, you would have to sit out for a while or pay a penalty. It’s the same idea with the Water Act – if you don’t follow the rules to keep our water clean, there are consequences.
