Posts Tagged ‘Water’

It’s common to describe the causes of water pollution generically, by directly blaming specific categories of pollutant – fertilisers, pesticides, or petroleum derivatives, for example.

Another popular approach is to describe the point of origin of the water pollution in spatial terms.

This approach distinguishes surface run-off (water flushing out pollutants from a wide area) from point-source water pollution (pollution from an industrial discharge pipe, for example).

An alternative terminology for non-point and point source is direct and indirect water pollution.

Some analysis focuses on the direct threat to human health from disease-causing agents or soluble toxics in polluted water.

Finally, a few descriptive resources list human activities such as mining, forestry, construction and farming as causes of water pollution or may acknowledge that pets are a source of water pollution.

Sometimes these activities are described, interchangably, as sources of water pollution.

Of course, it’s helpful to categorise pollutants and their sources in a number of ways to enable detailed discussion about what to do about the problem of water pollution.

However, few answers to the question ‘what causes water pollution?’ explicitly acknowledge the fact that people cause water pollution.

Human agency may be the most understated cause of water pollution. Of course we pollute passively on a large scale, merely by using the systems set up for us to exist and thrive.

But it’s only rarely that a case turns up and gets sufficient publicity to remind us that we are also capable of repeated, conscious, large-scale water pollution.

We just don’t know how many one-off acts of conscious water pollution go undetected. And the names of convicted corporate defendants largely remain outside the public consiousness.

In the Chemetco case, executives made a series of conscious choices over a period of many years, to support mulitple conspicuous acts of water pollution.

There’s no way to prove exactly why they did this. Perhaps one of them will come forward one day and offer an explanation.

But it’s worth documenting exactly what they did, how many times, and how mindfully they did it.

Will floating cities be a reality in the next decades or it’s just a big challenge for mechanics and architecture? Alexander Remizov is architect from Russia and founder of REMIstudio.

Alexander Remizov graduated from the Moscow Architectural Institute (MARCHI).In 1995 he founded the architectural studio Remistudio, which entered the top 50 sustainable architectural studios in the World. Author of more than 50 architectural and urban projects and more than 30 articles and publications in the field of sustainable architecture and “green” building.

Modern architecture operates based on two principles. The first one is the protection of any natural disastrous phenomenon and the second is the preservation of the natural habitat. Floating cities as a new-born architectural development, obey to the above mentioned principles.

Even if it sounds like a science fiction scenario, they may provide solutions and answers to the green house effect, to the forever increasing water-sea levels and the dwelling problem. With an emphasis put in the exploitation of the tidal and solar energy, they promise a better management of the energy itself and an ultimate autonomy.

Considering that Australia is the driest continent on earth, water-wise design features should be considered for each and every residence. Appliances including dishwashers and washing machines should be checked for their water consumption. Toilet cisterns and shower roses should also be selected on a ‘water use’ basis. The standard Australian garden features an expanse of lawn which demands copious amounts of water to survive our long, dry summers. A water wise garden with trickle irrigation direct to plant roots will cope within the dry with considerably much less attention and a lower water bill will likely be a bonus.

Greywater re-use is frowned upon by some state health departments. Greywater is household water that has not come in contact with toilet waste, and consists of water from baths, showers, kitchens and laundries. The fear is that greywater contains bacteria which can be a health risk. For this reason youll need a greywater reuse system that excludes waste water from the kitchen sink and dishwasher since their water consists of food nutrients, salts and oils. By using biodegradable detergents and ensuring that you empty soiled nappies just before washing them, greywater may be collected and spread safety in the garden.

Rainwater recycling is a pretty straightforward way of decreasing your consumption of scheme water. Numerous kinds and sizes of rainwater tanks are out there that can be readily connected to the roof downpipes. The quality of the water might vary depending on the level of filtering of leaves and other organic matter. Should you live in the inner city or near an industrial zone then air-borne pollutants might settle on the roof and be washed into the tank or the rain itself may well pick up atmospheric pollutants as it falls. But whatever the water quality, it is definitely suitable for garden use.

Scheme water offered in a lot of Australian cities is not necessarily the best drinking water and householders ought to look at alternative sources to decrease pressure on this limited resource. Unfortunately, governments have a conflict of interest since increased use of alternatives will result in reduced revenues for the state.

The sinking of bores to draw water for use on gardens is really frequent in some states. Governments have not yet taxed the use of groundwater and bores are an economically viable option in the long term.

Water Industry Network HC : In recent years, under the guidance of scientific concept of development, China’s water pollution prevention and control has been gradually strengthened, and in advancing the construction of key pollution control projects, more attention watershed pollution control management system and operational mechanism of the improved focus on administrative, economic, legal and the integrated use of engineering techniques and coordination. Beginning in 2007, the country began to pollution reduction, “double down” trend, focusing on water pollution prevention and control have made new progress, institutional mechanisms, the role of water pollution treatment in progressive highlights. As China’s industrialization and urbanization phase of rapid development, water pollution prevention goals and changing mode of economic development, construction, resource conservation and Environment Friendly society, there is considerable demand gap, especially in some long-standing institutional barriers and mechanisms and the issues that must be resolved to accelerate the establishment and the socialist market economic system to adapt to the water pollution control systems and mechanisms and tasks challenge of great significance.

1, the current institutional mechanisms for water pollution prevention and control of several major problems exist

Present, there are many water pollution control issues, policies and regulations are not perfect, insufficient capital investment, lack of public participation, technical support system is weak and so on, but the most fundamental problem is the management system is not fully rationalized , the operating mechanism is not enough coordination, especially in the following areas:

(A) The department coordinated the problem is not solved, the effective functioning of a unified comprehensive mechanism has been formed

Water pollution prevention and control is a typical multi-sectoral issues, the existing institutional framework for water pollution management, there Environmental protection , Water Resources, Development and Reform Commission, the construction of a number of departments involved, the main environmental protection departments. Multisectoral collaboration is not the source of the problem itself, the current problem is mainly the role of environmental protection is not given full play, department conflict, in particular environmental protection departments and water departments in the areas of lack of water pollution prevention is more effective collaboration has become water pollution control administration is facing one of the main system. Water and environmental conflicts in the watershed management departments have concentrated expression, involving planning, water quality monitoring, institutions, water allocation and total pollutant control, management and supervision of transboundary pollution, water pollution and other aspects of dispute mediation. In the river basin management, the obvious contradiction between the dual management system, such as the seven river basin management institutions are set up Water Resources Protection Bureau, Ministry of Water Resources and the State to accept nominal the dual leadership of the Ministry of Environmental Protection, Ministry of Water Resources sent a fact that the nature of institutions This restricts the basin agency’s role in water pollution control. From the part of the watershed management practices, the existing sectoral coordination difficult than regional coordination difficult. Huai River pollution control practice ten years shows that the two departments of environmental protection and water co-led leadership group name only, is the “Decade of the Huaihe River pollution control,” the important system ineffective one of the reasons.

(B) of the central and local powers and responsibilities of the pollution control division and the regulatory mechanisms are not perfect

In the central and local management on the relationship between water pollution control, management at different levels in China, namely, as a unit of administrative division, the regional environmental authorities bear the main responsibility for water pollution control, and superior environmental protection department of the local Environmental Protection Bureau Only the right guidance. As the local environmental protection departments of local government functions, causing it to easily become a tool for local interests, whether the data monitoring, pollution control, or approval of the construction project must be local, while the higher-level environmental protection departments of supervision can not exceed the local Government authority, such as state environmental authorities were ordered to close down the business but for the local government for asylum. SEPA’s monitoring of local environmental management there is no power to break local protectionism. GDP at current to the core of performance evaluation under the baton of economic development as local governments often give priority on the development and promulgation of the State Council’s environmental policy is difficult to put in place. The past two years, the State Environmental Protection Administration has increased the local regulatory efforts, have launched a “regional restrictions” and “river basins” and strong administrative punishment. But in the long term, need to establish trans-boundary river basin water quality control responsibility and total pollutant discharge accountability to the central place of the standard incentive clear, open, fair and local water pollution control is expected to provide a stable and long-term incentives.

Firstly we tend to have the problem of business processes that produce serious metals as a by-product. This can be then discarded of in lakes and rivers. Not solely can your drinking H2O thus be infected, but these metals also are deadly to fish and shellfish.

The entire food chain is thus affected.Industrial waste additionally typically contains alternative toxins that negatively affect all marine life in a very specific area. Some of these toxins can even cause bound species of marine animals to become unable to reproduce. Not solely can this cause harm to those who eat the animals involved, but when these chemicals finish up in a very city’s H20 provide the consequences will be disastrous.Untreated or partly treated sewage water will never end up in your drinking water, right? Wrong. In areas where there’s a scarcity of proper management over sewage H20, or where system leakages occur, the sewage water will simply end up in drinking H20, causing a selection of diseases.You have got little question heard of the concept of acid rain before, but you do understand how dangerous it can extremely be? The pH worth of H20 is changed by the sulfate particles in acid rain, making it more acidic. This in flip affects the entire eco-system of the realm in which it happens and contains a negative result on humans who consume such H20.As a personal you probably can’t do a lot of to combat environmental pollution.

Your only option is not to require part in any activities that can build the matter worse and to take steps to safeguard your family against the consequences of this sort of pollution.Fortunately we have a tendency to today get filters which will remove most if not all of the harmful residue left by H20 pollution. A filter uses either a chemical process or very fine sieves or each to remove impurities.Not solely do you get filters to purify your drinking water, you furthermore mght get filters for your shower, for the pool and even for H20 you use in the garden.

The most recent trend is lightweight, portable filters which hikers can use to own clean drinking water at all times, no matter where they are.You do not need to be a genius to guard yourself against the negative consequences of environmental pollution. With the right reasonably water filter you’ll try this while not any hassle.
