Japan is one of the most water-rich countries in the world. However, if the quality of environmental water becomes contaminated, it would take a long time and much effort to recover. After World War II, Japan achieved dramatic economic growth, but the development of industry caused various pollution problems including water pollution and posed a major threat to human health and cultural life. Now regulations concerning the environment, particularly water quality, are strictly managed.
