Water pollution and soil pollution are the two major causes of environment pollution. Water pollution means adding of harmful things in water. Soil pollution is the contamination of soil with harmful things. Water pollution and soil pollution are same because they are caused by the same reasons.
Water is polluted because we dump garbage and harmful chemical into the water. Soil is also polluted by dumping of waste, chemicals like fertilizers etc in the soil. Both water and soil pollution are very harmful for animals and plant. They cause many diseases and harm the environment. So, if we think about the causes and effects of soil and water pollution, they are much alike.

Soil pollution is the contamination of soil with harmful things. Soil pollution is caused by the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers in agriculture, waste disposal from household and hospital on soil, and leakage of chemicals or oils from factories.
