How does the eviroment affect the water ?

The dirt from the land makes the water from "The Jordan River" dirty. So making it a non usable source of water. If, the water was clean then it would provide them with water. So that is why Jordan needs a water filtration system. The valley has a sorta negative effect and positive. The negative effect is the dirt is falling into the River. Which is causing pollution in the water. The positive effect is it provides elevation for the flow of water.
