Just as in real-life cities of today, Pollution becomes a problem to advanced cities in civilization games. Certain buildings and nuclear weapons, or just excessive production, will make pollution. When pollution overflows in a city, it can create a pool of pollution, making one square of resources less productive until the mess is cleaned up by a worker.
