Commonly, water pollution is defined as physicochemical alteration in water that may gives effect to organisms (Chiras, 2001).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).A report by Yusoff & Haron (1999), the study of river water quality status of Ayer Hitam Forest Selangor showed that the upstream water quality was better than the downstream river water quality throughout the phase of sampling...

Consequently, groundwater pollution, sometimes referred to as groundwater contamination, is not as easily classified as surface water pollution.Indirect sources of water pollution include contaminants that enter the water supply from soils or groundwater systems and from the atmosphere acid rain.Except for the deliberate causes of surface water pollution, pollutants can also enter the water environment accidentally, for instance through atmospheric deposition. In addition to the acute problems of water pollution in developing countries, developed countries continue to struggle with pollution problems as well.Water pollution occurs when pollutants are discharged directly or indirectly into water bodies without adequate treatment to rem...

So we may conclude that this two algae Porphyra umbilicalis and Fucus vesiculosus have the power and the property to depollution the part of water when are they.The result show the fact that algae are capable to reduce the pollution from water.As well as being more toxic, aromatic compounds are generally more soluble in water than aliphatic compounds: for example, benzene has a water solubility of 1.8 g/l.The results of ICP-AES concluded that these algae (Porphyra umbilicalis and Fucus vesiculosus) can be used in removal recovery of heavy metal ions from industrial waste water.Tanker washing and accidents are responsable for most the oil contamination of marine water.

In “On the Mode of Communication of Cholera”, Snow presents various different studies that examine the correlation between where people were receiving their water from and how many were diagnosed with Cholera depending on where their water was from.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. Snow did numerous studies on Cholera being spread through water.Snow presented his data in tables to show that more deaths were prominent in areas with bad water supply.He wanted a system where fresh water only was pumped to people, and that waste, sewage, trash, etc.

Water pollution is not just something that big chemical plants make improvements.Water can also be polluted by a number of organic compounds such as oil, plastics and pesticides, which are harmful to humans and all plants and animals in the 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.A third class of water pollutants is water-soluble inorganic pollutants, such as acids, salts and toxic metals.This Air pollution plays an important role in the life cycle of pollution because air pollution only makes the human beings into lots of defects like asthma, cancer, breathing problem, etc.

One is “water loving” and the other is “water hating.” The water-loving (hydrophilic) part breaks the surface tension of water.When toxins are in the water, the toxins travel from the water the animals drink to humans when the animals’ meat is eaten.The growth of algae due to food items, feces, or urea in the water source is also a source of water pollution.Water pollution affects our oceans, lakes, rivers, and drinking water, making it a widespread and global concern.· 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.

The contaminated water and waste water should be treated in a way that it does not raise public health issues.This phenomenon of the water resources being less when compared to the availability of usable water, is termed as water crisis.Fresh water is not as abundant as salt water, fresh water is only 2.The pollutants are a threat to the supply of water, in the developing countries it is because of the flow of waste water in the natural water.They can either charge them for consuming water exceeding a certain limit or can charge them on the consumption of water altogether.

Dangers of Water Pollution – Virtually all water pollutants are hazardous to humans as well as lesser species; sodium is implicated in cardiovascular disease, nitrates in blood disorders.Sources of Water Pollution – Sources of water pollution are generally divided into two categories.Major of these are: Air pollution, Water pollution, Soil pollution (land degradation) and Noise pollution.Water is said to be polluted when there is any physical, biological or chemical change in water quality that adversely affects living organisms or makes water unsuitable for use.The term “water pollution” generally refers to human-induced changes to water quality.

As a consequence, great number of communities around the world has limited water supply that necessitated for the conservation and reuse of water (“Guidelines for Water Reuse” 3).The criteria for water quality standards must be developed with respect to water use such as for agricultural purposes and wildlife habitat (“Hydrology and Water Quality” 6).The Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1972, now called as Clean Water Act, was amended to expand its control in the regulation of wastewater discharges from the industries through the issuance of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, NPDES permit (“Hydrology and Water Quality” 6).Although water reclamation and reuse has great advantages in conserving water, wastewater treatme...

Plants and animals require water that is moderately pure, and they cannot survive if their water is affluent with toxic chemicals and/or harmful microorganisms.So as you can see, water pollution is a very serious problem it is responsible for dramatic decreases of fish and wildlife populations in our, rivers, lakes, and oceans.The oxygen levels in the water may drop so low that fish and other oxygen-dependent animals in the water suffocate, and die, this happens mostly in the Midwest and other such places where there are vast amounts of farm land.At first the nutrients will help the plants and algae in the water grow, but when they die and settle underwater, microorganisms decompose them, while decomposing them the microorganisms take in...

As Stefano puts it in his essay on Fresh Water And Tourism In The Mediterranean, pollution of the Mediterranean Sea water “causes the decrease or even the disappearance of many terrestrial and aquatic species and also prevents local people and tourists enjoying bathing and other leisure activities” (Stefano 2004, p. .This in turn triggers the saline water to intrude into the fresh water.This exploitation occurs when volume of the abstracted water from the ground exceeds annual ground water renewal.For instance, the Dead Sea is slowly dying out with salty water that has posed a threat to the fresh water and the landscape around the Dead Sea is bare with sun-baking (WN Network 2006, par 1).A lot of the income got from the tourists is spe...
