The book covers in detail the flow measurement and characterization of waste waters in industries, and control of water pollution by employing various techniques for treatment of biological and nonbiological wastes.

The considerations for recycling and utilization of waste waters have also found a place in the s: 2. The stress on our water environment as a result of increased industrialization, which aids urbanization, is becoming very high thus reducing the availability of clean water.

Polluted water is of great concern to the aquatic organism, plants, humans, and climate and indeed alters the by: The major causes of water pollution include sewage and other oxygen-demanding wastes, urbanization, agro-chemical wastes, thermal pollution, industrial wastes, nutrient enrichment, acid rain Author: Asha Gupta.

Sources of Water Pollution Water pollution in Nigeria according to Gbamanija () arises from various activities, among which are: i. Sewage leakages ii. High population density iii.

oil spillage iv. Unfortunately, water pollution is created when fertilizer, animal and human waste, plastics, and toxic industrial chemicals enters these sources. It costs the economy by impacting public health, fishing, tourism, and the environment.

Governments try to control the damage by setting water quality standards to regulate usage. WATER POLLUTION Water pollution may be defined as alteration in the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of water which may cause harmful effects on human and aquatic life.(Report,restoring the quality of our Environment, president science committee, Washington USA) Olaniran () defined water pollution to be presence of.

Pollution of surface water has become one of the most important environmental problems. Two types of large and long-lasting pollution threats can be recognized at the global level: on the one hand, organic pollution leading to high organic content in aquatic ecosystems and, in the long term, to eutrophication.

Effects on the Ecosystem Industrial water pollution can have far reaching effects on the ecosystem. The water used in various industrial processes comes in contact with toxic chemicals, heavy metals, organic sludge, and even radioactive sludge.

Water pollution from industry would include resources such as lead, mercury, cyanide, nitrates radioactivity and pesticides. Some are found in traces in remote places where pollution is not normally found but the main concern with regards to human health refers to contamination from the industry, mining, chemicals used in agriculture such as pesticides, an intensive livestock husbandry leading.

Water Pollution: Causes, Effects and Control is a book providing comprehensive information on the fundamentals and latest developments in the field of water pollution.

The book is divided into 28 chapters covering almost all the aspects of water pollution including water resources and general properties of water; history of water pollution and Reviews: 2. Complex environmental problems are often reduced to an inappropriate level of simplicity. While this book does not seek to present a comprehensive scientific and technical coverage of all aspects of the subject matter, it makes the issues, ideas, and language of environmental engineering accessible and understandable to the nontechnical reader.

mitigate the adverse effects of pollution. Pollution control means to control the emissions and effluents into the air, water and land or soil. Without pollution control, the waster products from consumptions, heating, agriculture, mining, manufacturing.

Chapter 10 - Framework for Water Pollution Control Introduction Initial analysis of water quality problems Establishing objectives for water pollution control Management tools and instruments Action plan for water pollution control References Case Study I - The Ganga, India I.1 Introduction I.2 The Ganga river.

Industrial pollution is a global problem. Every day, companies discard toxic materials and release waste that affects the environment, including the air, water and soil. Around the world, more than 80 percent of tap water contains plastic fibers.

Inmore than million tons of ammonia were released in the air. The Clean Water Act. InCongress passed the Clean Water Act to reduce water pollution. Various pieces of anti-pollution legislation have followed since that.

Surface Water Pollution Causes. Bodies of water can become polluted in a number of ways. Point source pollution refers to contaminants that enter a waterway via a single, identifiable source, such as a waste water treatment pipe or a factory -point source pollution is when the contamination is coming from many scattered locations.

Examples of non-point source pollution. This book begins with a discussion of the basics of the hydrological cycle and a description of the natural aquatic environment including the normal composition of surface waters. Further chapters detail the sources of water pollution and the affects of water pollution including biological treatment of sewerage, sludge treatment and disposal.

Large quantities of oily wastewater are produced from the activities and processes in the petroleum industry, and draining of these effluents not only pollutes the environment but also reduces the yield of oil and water.

This chapter gives a general introduction to the control and treatment of water emissions in the petroleum industry. All kinds of environmental pollution have a negative impact on animal health, the most serious type of pollution of air, water and noise pollution.

Even a very small level of pollution of the environment of many animals discomfort, while in contrast, more extreme pollution causes illness and death in animals.

POINT SOURCES OF POLLUTION: LOCAL EFFECTS AND IT’S CONTROL – Vol. I - Industrial Pollution - Xianghua WEN Industry is also a major consumer of natural resources and a major contributor to the overall pollution load.

Based on OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and. Point sources of water pollution are easier to control than dispersed sources because the contaminated water has been collected and conveyed to one single point where it can be treated. Pollution from dispersed sources is difficult to control, and, despite much progress in the building of modern sewage-treatment plants, dispersed sources.

Effects of water pollution in India Water pollution can have some tremendously-adverse effect on the health of any and every life form living in the vicinity of the polluted water body or using.

To control water pollution steps need to be taken like treatment of domestic sewage, which apparently contains % of pure water, industrial waste water treatment, done through pollution prevention process, agricultural waste water treatment through point and non point source control.

Industry is a huge source of water pollution, it produces pollutants that are extremely harmful to people and the environment. Many industrial facilities use freshwater to carry away waste from the plant and into rivers, lakes and oceans.

After water, concrete is the most widely used substance on Earth. If the cement industry were a country, it would be the third largest carbon dioxide emitter in the world with up to bn tonnes.

There are many environmental issues in pollution, water pollution, garbage domestically prohibited goods and pollution of the natural environment are all challenges for is also causing some drastic effects on India.

The situation was worse between through According to data collection and environment assessment studies of World Bank experts, between Water Pollution: Effects. Not only does water pollution cause the death of many organisms, it also disrupts entire ecosystems.

55% of over freshwater species have declined because of Water pollution, while 32% of the salt water and land species have developing countries, water pollution is a leading cause of death. Pollution: Causes, Effects and Control is the fourth edition of a best-selling introductory level book dealing with chemical and radioactive pollution in its broadest sense.

The scope of the book ranges from the sources of pollutants and their environmental behaviour, to their effects on human and non-human receptors, to the technologies and strategies available for fourth edition 5/5(2). Fisheries—Pollution and ocean acidification are damaging the $ billion shellfish industry on America's West Coast.

Coral bleaching has increased nearly fivefold in the past 40 years. The National Marine Fisheries Service estimates the commercial value of U.S. fisheries from coral reefs is more than $ million.

The effects of water pollution are very pronounced in our environment. Furthermore, toxic chemicals can bioaccumulate in living beings, and these chemicals can travel their way up the food chain, ultimately reaching humans.

Among the other types of pollution, water pollution has a more disastrous consequences on humans. In the s, the United Kingdom brought onto the statute books legislation to control water pollution and was strengthened in in the Rivers Pollution Prevention Act and was subsequently extended to all freshwaters in the Rivers (Prevention of Pollution) Act and applied to coastal waters by the Rivers (Prevention of Pollution) Act The Environmental Protection Act of Water pollution.

Diffuse source water pollution arises in a catchment from many different sources rather than a single discharge point. This type of water pollution mainly results from rainfall run-off, particularly during storms. Diffuse source water pollution has a big impact on our waterways.

In some waterways it is the largest source of. Effects of nuclear pollution •The effects vary from organism to organism and from level of radioactivity of nuclear isotopes. The radiations destroy the cells in human body and causes cancer.

•A longer exposure to radioactive radiations can damage the DNA cells that results in cancer, genetic defects for the generations to come and even death.

Water pollution is when waste, chemicals, or other particles cause a body of water (i.e. rivers, oceans, lakes) to become harmful to the fish and animals that need the water to survive.

Water pollution can disrupt and negatively impact nature's water cycle as well. Natural Causes of Water Pollution Sometimes water pollution can occur through. Effects of Water Pollution. Pollutants in water resulting from trash, oil spills, sewage spills and run-off from agricultural fields, construction sites and factories affect native plant and animal species.

Drinking contaminated water caused by sewage overflow may cause sickness and digestive problems in humans. Pollutants such as mercury in. When India imposed a nationwide lockdown a week ago, it was designed to stop the imminent spread of the novel coronavirus.
