        Water pollution control criteria. Natural waters and wastewaters are characterized in terms of their physical, chemical and biological composition. The principal physical properties and the chemical and biological constituents of wastewater and their sources are a lengthy list, reported in a textbook by Metcalf and Eddy (). Dams are among the most damaging human activities in river basins, deeply modifying the physiography of watersheds. Reservoirs may look very much like natural lakes; however, the operating regime determined by the purpose for which the reservoirs were created may significantly alter their physicochemical character and biological ://

Environmental and Pollution Science, Third Edition, continues its tradition on providing readers with the scientific basis to understand, manage, mitigate, and prevent pollution across the environment, be it air, land, or water.

Pollution originates from a wide variety of sources, both natural and man-made, and occurs in a wide variety of forms   Most reservoirs are formed by constructing dams across rivers.

A reservoir can also be formed from a natural lake whose outlet has been dammed to control the water level.

The dam controls the amount of water that flows out of the reservoir. Service reservoirs are entirely manmade and do not rely on damming a river or lake. These reservoirs   In contrast, point source pollution represents those activities where wastewater is routed directly into receiving water bodies by, for example, discharge pipes, where they can be easily measured and controlled.

Obviously, non-point source pollution is much more difficult to identify, measure and control than point   Indoor air pollution from biomass and coal fuels.

In China, indoor air pollution from burning solid fuels is one of the largest environmental health risk factors, leading to an estimatedpremature deaths per year.

However, the negative impacts of these projects on the environment are often ignored. Optimal reoperation of reservoirs, which considers not only in socio-economic values but also environmental benefits, is increasingly important.

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

Environmental and Pollution Science, Second Edition, provides the latest information on the environmental influence of a significant number of subjects, and discusses their impact on a new generation of students. This updated edition of Pollution Science has been renamed to reflect a wider view of the environmental consequences we pay as a price for a modern ://  be solved by installing expensive pollution control equipment.

Of course, there is some work involved in planning and implementing an EMS. But many organizations have found that the development of an EMS can be a vehicle for positive change. These organizations believe that the benefits of an EMS far outweigh the potential costs (see next page).

AsFor example, a reservoir that provides irrigation, power generation (see small scale and large scale hydropower), flood control, and recreational use may cause conflicting demands by its users (WATERENCYCLOPEDIA ).
