WATER POLLUTION AND SOCIETY By David Krantz and Brad Kifferstein INTRODUCTION Comprising over 70% of the Earth’s surface, water is undoubtedly the most precious natural resource that exists on our planet. Without the seemingly invaluable compound comprised of hydrogen and oxygen, life on Earth would be non-existent: it is essential for everything on our planet to grow and prosper. Although we as humans recognize this fact, we disregard it by polluting our rivers, lakes, and oceans. Subsequently, we are slowly but surely harming our planet to the point where organisms
are dying at a very alarming rate. In addition to innocent organisms dying off, our drinking water has become greatly affected as is our ability to use water for recreational purposes. In order to combat water pollution, we must understand the problems and become part of the solution. POINT AND NONPOINT SOURCES According to the American College Dictionary, pollution is defined as: “to make foul or unclean; dirty.” Water pollution occurs when a body of water is adversely affected due to the addition of large amounts of materials to the water. When it is unfit for its intended use, water is considered polluted. Two types of water pollutants exist; point source and nonpoint source. Point sources of pollution occur when harmful substances are emitted directly into a body of water. The Exxon Valdez oil spill best illustrates a point source water pollution. A nonpoint source delivers pollutants indirectly through environmental changes. An example of this type of water pollution is when fertilizer from a field is carried into a stream by rain, in the form of run-off

Nathan L. Watermeier
Ohio citizens have shown increased concern about the wise use and protection of the state's water resources. This concern grows as Ohio citizens are increasingly affected by state regulations and water protection measures brought about by the federal Clean Water Act of 1987 and its subsequent reauthorizations (see Clean Water Act insert). As with most legislation, regulations and protection measures for water are complex, and the terminology may not be readily understandable to most readers. The purpose of this publication is to help the reader gain a better understanding of the terminology associated with nonpoint source (NPS) pollution and the protection of water resources. The list of terms described here is not comprehensive, but includes terms often used in the context of water-related, nonpoint source pollution in Ohio. This publication is intended for those who at least have a general understanding of water quality.

Ever heard of a "watershed"?
Despite the fact that we all live in a watershed , most of us don't know the actual meaning of the word. Put simply, a watershed is all the land that drains into a given body of water. This body of water can be a creek, pond, river or ocean. Generally speaking, the larger the body of water, the larger its watershed. The Chesapeake Bay watershed, for example, covers 64,000 square miles and drains from six states including 60 percent of Virginia. The map above depicts the Old Dominion's major river watersheds (there are 497 subwatersheds). One thing all of these watersheds have in common is people, and where you have people, you have land altering activity. When we alter land - to farm, to build, to landscape, for transportation - we must take care to make sure our land use changes aren't causing runoff pollution problems for either other people or plants and animals downstream that depend on clean, usable water. The technical term for this form of pollution is

Water Pollution Question: I want to discharge liquid effluent from my factory into a sewer. Is this a controlled water? Water Pollution: Answer No. Water supply mains and pipes, sewers and drains are excluded from the definition of controlled waters. However, to discharge trade effluent into a sewer you will need a trade effluent discharge consent from the sewerage undertaker (the privatised water company).

Water Pollution
Water is probably one of the most important resources we have. People can survive without food for several weeks, but without water we would die in less than one week. On a slightly less dramatic note, millions of litres of water are needed every day worldwide for washing, irrigating crops, and cooling industrial processes, not to mention leisure industries such as swimming pools and watersports centres. Despite our dependence on water, we use it as a dumping ground for all sorts of waste, and do very little to protect the water supplies we have. There are several threats to our water resources. Oil spills kill thousands of seabirds and can wreck water desalination plants and industrial plants drawing their water from affected coastlines. However, oil can get into the sea from many other sources , and cause just as much damage. Poor management of existing water resources can lead to those resources running out or at least shrinking, such as the Aral Sea . More locally, the North Sea is suffering from heavy pollution. Much of the pollution in rivers and seas comes from chemicals, mainly from agriculture . Another pollution issue which is often overlooked is thermal pollution This page was produced by Mark Bennett for the Database for Use in Schools project.

Pages: 13-20
Word Count: 2945
Summary: The environmental issues concerning the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea, such as the presence of polluting substances have been examined in this study. The conclusion calls for a collective effort by the littoral states to collectively prevent further pollution. Text: The Persian Gulf and its Ecological State The Persian Gulf is a partially closed sea of salty water with an average depth of 35 meters. It joins free international waters through the Strait of Hormuz. A variety of factors have all combined to threaten its environment and its specific ecological characteristics. Among them are its higher rate of water evaporation than fresh water supply, and most significantly, the extended drilling and oil extraction projects that take place here, enabling lucrative exports for the littoral states. The annual water evaporation rate in the Persian Gulf ranges from 150 to 400 cm. This is a high rate compared to other marine areas such as the Mediterranean Sea where evaporation hardly reaches an annual 15 cm. Moreover, the salinity of the water intensifies from the Strait of Hormuz to the northwestern parts, measuring 38 units per thousand in the strait to between 60 to 70 units per thousand in Khour Musa.

Tier I biomarkers

Tier II biomarkers


Introduction In the attempt to define and measure the effects of pollutants on an ecosystem, biomarkers have attracted a great deal of interest. The principle behind the biomarker approach is the analysis of an organism's physiological or biochemical response to pollutant exposure. When compared with chemical residue analysis, biomarkers have an advantage of being a measure of the stress incurred in the organism, and so are more biologically relevant. However whereas chemical analysis for defined pollutants gives well defined concentration data, biomarkers are often more difficult to interpret. When compared with population parameters, the opposite is the case. Biomarkers are often more easily quantifiable than population parameters, such as growth and reproduction, but whereas measurements of population parameters gives an accurate picture of the ecological effects of the pollutant, biomarkers are not necessarily indicative of a deleterious effect. That is, although all population stresses are necessarily preceded by a biochemical response, all biochemical responses need not be associated with a population stress.

    Britain's beaches "still deteriorating"
    The latest survey of Britain's beaches, Norwich Union Coastwatch UK , has found that the overall quality of the UK's coastline is not improving. The survey, of 1,842 km of coastline, found 35,987 items of sewage related waste (an average of 20 per kilometre), 1,122 items of medical waste (one per kilometre), 21,116 cans (17 per kilometre), 41,259 plastic bottles (22 per kilometre), and 2,000 discarded tyres (two per kilometre). The percentage of coastline considered excellent fell for the first time since the start of the annual survey, six years ago - to only 8 per cent. Co-ordinator of the scheme, Dr Gareth Rees, said: "It's apparent that the government and industry believe enough is being done to keep pollution levels on our beaches at a "satisfactory' level. However, we've confirmed a high base level of pollution and the overall quality of our coastline is still deteriorating." A survey by the Marine Conservation Society and Reader's Digest magazine has found that the beach at New Brighton, Merseyside, is the UK's dirtiest. The survey also found that the concentration of sewage pollution had doubled since 1993. A separate study by Dr Stephen Myint of Leicester University found high concentrations of viruses at some popular beaches.
