The contamination of water bodies due to human activities is referred to as water pollution. It is majorly caused due to the discharge of wastewater into natural water bodies. The anthropogenic contaminants along with natural phenomena such as volcanoes, earthquakes, storms and algae blooms can cause changes in the quality and the ecological status of the water. Other contaminants include acidity, petroleum, detergents, food processing waste, ammonia, fertilizers and garbage. Chemicals and pathogens are also some pollutants that contribute to water pollution. Various physical, chemical and biological tests are used to analyze the water samples to measure the water pollution. This book provides comprehensive insights into the field of water pollution. Most of the topics introduced herein cover new techniques used for the control and treatment of water pollution. The book is appropriate for those seeking detailed information in this area.
