Water quality for various types of water body varies with input loads, flow rate and quantity of water (Mohd Kamil1991; Wan Nor Azmin et al.1997).With an increased understanding of the importance of drinking water quality to public health and raw water quality to aquatic life, there is a great need to assess surface water quality (Campbell et al., 1993).This is crucial for the evaluation and protection of water resources and in the assessment of water quality for creating threshold ions composition in natural water.(2008), to protect valuable water resources, one must understand the natural evolution of water chemistry under natural water circulation processes in mixture with knowledge about the background of the study area.The pH is an ...

The growth of algae due to food items, feces, or urea in the water source is also a source of water pollution.When toxins are in the water, the toxins travel from the water the animals drink to humans when the animals’ meat is eaten.When algae grow in water, it uses up more than its fair share of oxygen, causing other living organisms in the body of water to suffer.One is “water loving” and the other is “water hating.” The water-loving (hydrophilic) part breaks the surface tension of water.· Altered water temperatures (due to human actions) can kill the marine life and affect the delicate ecological balance in bodies of water, especially lakes and rivers.

Snow presented his data in tables to show that more deaths were prominent in areas with bad water supply.Another study that Snow conducted was on two districts in London that were very alike in social and economic compositions, but had different water supplies.All of this horrible pollution would be the air that people during that time would breathe in, and it would also find its way into the water that they drank.“The 1848 Act empowered local boards of health to enforce drainage, build sewers, compel the servicing of cesspools, pave and clean streets, deal with nuisances, inspect lodging houses and burial grounds, control the water supply, and raise local taxes to pay for it all.” The above quote tells how the environment was soon b...

In addition to sewage, chemicals dumped by industries and governments are another major source of water pollution.The effects of chemical water pollution are varied and depend on what chemicals are dumped and in what locations by industries.Water pollution harms individuals, degrades the environment, and shows the ignorance of polluters.Ecosystems can be severely changed or destroyed by water pollution.One of the reasons that the water pollution problem is so severe is that it is not actually illegal to dump pollutants into water bodies.

The next harmful effect of tobacco I wanted to address is the pollution that is involved with the manufacturing and use of tobacco products.For example in Brazil, the harmful consequences of tobacco farming are becoming visibly clear in the form of forest destruction, erosion and extremely low water levels (Assistance and Management).The negative effects of tobacco pollution are extremely visible in our everyday world, and should be taken care of immediately.Tobacco growing is rotational with other food crops, but tobacco makes soil extremely susceptible to wind and water damage which means that soil will sometimes be incompatible for food crops (Schmitt).Another issue that is a little less visible than pollution is the effect tobacco ma...

Water pollution causes approximately 14,000 deaths per day, mostly due to contamination of drinking water by untreated sewage in developing countries.A point source of pollution is a single identifiable localized source of air, water, thermal, noise or light pollution.Thermal pollution is the degradation of water quality by any process that changes ambient water temperature.Disruption of the environment can also highlight the connection between areas of pollution that would normally be classified separately, such as those of water and air.It is the leading cause of water pollution in the United States today, with polluted runoff from agriculture the primary cause.

Water pollution affects plants and organisms living in these bodies of water.Another class of water pollutants are nutrients; they are water-soluble nitrates and phosphates that cause excessive growth of algae and other water plants, which deplete the water’s oxygen supply. In addition to the acute problems of water pollution in developing countries, developed countries continue to struggle with pollution problems as well.Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g.The quality of sewage water that enters the surface water depends upon the pollutants that are present in the sewage water and the extend to which it is treated before it is brought in contact with surface water.
