The impact on the pollution of the lakes is impacting the salmon by either seriously injuring them or mostly killing them.
It impacts the drinking water and the living organisms in the lake. This canlead to poor vegitation and poor water sources.
This also cause the salmon to die out and have a hard time reaching the streams in the fall because of these harmful chemicals.
this also means that the reproduction will decrease at a a steady pace.

no more harmful waste is entered the salmon will be great.
