    There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of pollutants whose effects are of actual or potential concern. Their numbers increase annually, as new compounds and formulations are synthesised. A substantial minority of these find commercial applications and become significant pollutants of water during their manufacture and in subsequent use. In his award-winning book WATER, Marq de Villiers provides an eye-opening account of how we are using, misusing, and abusing our planet's most vital resource. Encompassing ecological, historical, and cultural perspectives, de Villiers reports from hot spots as diverse as China, Las Vegas, and the Middle East, where swelling populations and unchecked development have stressed fresh water /5(3).

    Most of these pollutants were previously (e.g., years ago) unknown or simply unrecognized or unidentified and have recently emerged as contaminants associated with potential environmental risks. Their fate in water/wastewater treatment plants, in engineered systems and generally in the environment still remains relatively unknown. Sources and effects of water pollution Water pollution can be caused in a number of ways, one of the most polluting being city sewage and industrial waste discharge. Indirect sources of water pollution include contaminants that enter the water supply from soils or groundwater systems and from the atmosphere via rain.

      A brief discussion on different water pollutants, their source in atmosphere and impact on environment and human health is also done in this study. In this study a concise discussion has been done on some traditional water pollutants like nutrients (NO 3 and PO 4), Halogen (Cl, Br and F), heavy metals (Fe, Mn, Al, Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, Cr, Ni and Hg.   Water pollution and types of water pollutants Water pollution: Any chemical, biological and environmental change in water causes adverse effect on health of living beings is called water pollution.; When certain substances are present in water beyond their normal limit then the water is term as polluted.

Such apportionments provide valuable data for policy makers to formulate strategies for water and air quality management.

Combines fundamental concepts of pollutant fate and transport with chemical principles in a modern text which assesses environmental quality. Features examples from a wide diversity of water quality issues such as conventional pollutants in rivers, eutrophication of lakes, and toxic organic chemicals and heavy metals in surface and s: 4.

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are organic compounds of natural or anthropogenic origin that resist photolytic, chemical and biological degradation. They are characterized by low water solubility and high lipid solubility, resulting in bioaccumulation in fatty tissues of living organisms.

Surface water pollution could threaten human, animal and ecosystem. Global human population and urban development are increasing at unprecedented rates, thereby creating havoc to the surface water quality. This study aims at reviewing some recent. 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. Recently, many studies have published on the source and occurrence as well as the fate of pharmaceuticals all over the world.

This paper summarized and reviewed the recent studies on the sources, occurrence, fate and the effects of the most common pharmaceuticals. Water Pollutants, Chemical / analysis*. mits), distinctions on the basis of physical characteristics have become blurred.

Traditional point sources at the time of passage of the Clean Water Act of included only outfall discharges from defined municipal and industrial installations; these sources, the focus of most control efforts heretofore, are generally well characterized now by types and fluxes of pollutants, although that.

The book offers solutions to a serious pollution problem—making it required reading for environmental and agricultural engineers, planners, regulatory professionals, and remediation specialists.

It will also be a useful source for graduate students in environmental engineering and science.A comprehensive, thoroughly modern approach to environmental quality assessment The only textbook to combine engineering transport fundamentals and equilibrium aquatic chemistry, Environmental Modeling brings a uniquely contemporary perspective to the assessment of environmental quality.

The pollution of earth’s surface is mainly caused by bio-degradable wastes, wastes resistant degradation, non-degradable wastes and surplus or waste energy.

Biodegradable wastes can hi decompose rather easily by abiotic and biotic agencies.
