About this Item

Combining factual and statistical details in the Indian Context with relevant Scientific information, this Book is a comprehensive treatise on Water Pollution and its management and control. The aptly Illustrated text spreads over a dozen of independent chapters covering specific areas such as Thermal pollution, inorganic and Organic pollution, Oil pollution, sewage pollution, aquatic Pathogens and nuisance organisms, eutrophication, water quality standards, water pollution control through Biotechnology and water quality management. Over 350 references for further reading are also available. Water is one of the most important resources which human being has exploited than any other resource for the sustenance of their life. Most of the water on this planet is stored in Oceans and ice-caps which is difficult to be recovered for our diverse needs. Most of our demands for water are fulfilled by rainwater which gets deposited in surface and groundwater sources. The quantity of this utilizable water is very much limited on the earth. Though water is continuously purified by evaporation and precipitation, pollution of water has emerged as one of the most significant Environmental problem. Not only there is an increasing concern for rapidly deteriorating water quality, but the quantity of unutilisable water is also diminishing. The causes of such a situation are many, but gross pollution of water has its origin in urbanisation, industrialisation and increasing human pollution. Printed Pages: 394.
