Transcript of "Water Pollution"

  1. 1. Pollution: Water – waste<br />Jun Yu<br />Robbie<br />Yew Jie<br />TengKiat<br />James<br />
  2. 2. Pollution<br />Introduction of substances into environment<br />Unpleasant effects<br />Natural and Human<br />Found in waste<br />
  3. 3. Water Pollution<br />Pollutants discharged<br />Directly<br />From land<br />Poisonous<br />
  4. 4. Water Pollution - Waste<br />General causes:<br />Release of sewage<br />Industrial waste<br />Response<br />Sewage treatment plants<br />However, some substances are non-biodegradable<br />
  5. 5. Case Study 1: The Ganga, India<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. The Ganga Action Plan:<br />Control of non-point pollution from agricultural run off, human defecation, cattle wallowing and throwing of unburnt and half burnt bodies into the river.<br />Research and Development to conserve the biotic, diversity of the river to augment its productivity.<br />
  8. 8. The Ganga Action Plan:<br />New technology of sewage treatment [eg.Up-flow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB)] and sewage treatment through afforestation has been successfully developed.<br />Rehabilitation of soft-shelled turtles for pollution abatement of river have been demonstrated and found useful.<br />
  9. 9. The Ganga Action Plan:<br />Resource recovery options like production of methane for energy generation and use of aquaculture for revenue generation have been demonstrated.<br />To act as trend setter for taking up similar action plans in other grossly polluted stretches in other rivers.<br />
  10. 10.
  11. 11. Case Study 2: River Damodar, India<br />
  12. 12.
  13. 13. The Damodar Action Plan:<br />Extension of the Ganga Action Plan<br />Revitalise 38 key Indian rivers<br />Conducted in four phases<br />Installation of electric crematoriums (1)<br />Construction of gardens, children's parks and bathing ghats with modern facilities (2)<br />Improving solid and liquid waste management (3 and 4)<br />
