1. EXPLAIN WHY IS IT FOCUSSED
Water pollution is focussed because it is a serious problem: It has caused diseases, such as Cholera (severe dehydration may come in, especially), and death. It is currently happening in many parts of the world. 
2. EXPLAIN WHY IS IT SIGNIFICANT
Water pollution is significant because it leads to serious consequences such as short age of water and reduce in number of marine creatures, if something is not done to solve or reduce it. Also, humans require water to live, depending alot on it even for other purposes such as bathing or cooking. It definitely changes quality of water bodies. It applies to the society, and as we said, it is happening in the world. For example, factories use water as a coolant, especially in power plants and industrial manufacturers. These water, after usage, it is dispensed into the water bodies and it would kill marine life. It can also be caused by the release of cool water into the warmer rivers. If it continues to happen, we may not have enough water to drink, and for any purpose in our everyday life. 
3. EXPLAIN WHY IS IT FEASIBLE
It is possible to deal with water pollution because we can communicate with people in doing our survey with the internet, and other forms of communication. This will allow us to gather as much information. We also have the proper equipment, to test the in the specific reservoir (Sungei Ulu Pandan Reservoir) that we had actually selected. 
4. EXPLAIN WHY IS IT MANAGEABLE
We have a teacher to come along with us for the collection of data (with permission), and he was the one who provided the equipment AND the set of data (the water test in the forest). Besides, creating the quiz (SurveyMonkey) was much easier, and we can ask our friends to help us. It was only 13 people, so it was rather fast. Having easy access to the internet and the 'SurveyMonkey' helped us a lot. 

5. EXPLAIN WHY IS IT ACCESSIBLE
We have the proper equipment (our teacher would be providing the equipment), and we can always use platforms such as Facebook and SurveyMonkey. The track to the reservoir is open to the public, and it was rather near our school. Our teacher have also given us his results to his own tests on the water in the forest, so we can compare the results from the two places: Reservoir and the Forest. 
6. STATE AT LEAST 3 SOURCES OF INFORMATION THAT YOU WILL BE DRAWING YOUR RESEARCH UPON (3 web links) AND WHY YOU CHOOSE THEM.


The sources are: 

The sources listed above has all the information about the various causes of water pollution and the harmful effects of it.


Special thanks to our teacher, Mr Tan Hoe Teck, for providing us with information and equipment; offering us guidance and help. 
G: STATE YOUR TYPE OF DATA COLLECTION AS IN TIP 5
Collection of data from water sources, the test results from our teacher, and Survey Monkey (most specifically, asking students of SST.)
