Water pollution in Jammu and Kashmir has been a major cause of concern as the state is located in the Kashmir Valley. The water pollution problem is aggravated by several other problems such as agriculture, human development, environment and the economy.

The Jammu and Kashmir have many rivers that provide the state with water. However, the major pollution problem is associated with three rivers namely the Chenab, Beas and Ravi. These rivers are categorized as high risk rivers in the eyes of the environmental protection agencies and hence have to be controlled by the concerned authorities.

There are many dams in the Jammu and Kashmir that have become a major source of pollution. These dams include the Dal Lake in Chenab district, Kupwara in Beas and Kumarakom in Ravi. The dams that are used for storing the water are responsible for causing heavy pollution and thus have to be demolished.

Water pollution also results from natural calamities.
