Water Pollution Dr. Geetanjali Kaushik AIES
Water Availability Water is the essential element that makes life on earth possible. Without water there would be no life. We usually take water for granted. Although 71% of the earth’s surface is covered by water only a tiny fraction of this water is available to us as fresh water. About 97% of the total water available on earth is found in oceans and is too salty for drinking or irrigation. The remaining 3% is fresh water. Of this 2.997% is locked in ice caps or glaciers. Thus only 0.003% of the earth’ total volume of water is easily available to us as soil moisture, groundwater, water vapour and water in lakes, streams, rivers and wetlands.
Water Scarcity As freshwater becomes more scarce access to water resources will be a major factor in determining the economic growth of several countries around the world. The future wars in our world may well be fought over water.
Water availability on the planet Water that is found in streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands  and artificial reservoirs is called  surface water .  Water that percolates into the ground and fills the pores in soil and rock is called groundwater.   Porous water-saturated layers of sand, gravel or bedrock through which ground water flows are called aquifers.  Most aquifers are replenished naturally by rainfall that percolates downward through the soil and rock. This process is called natural recharge. If the withdrawal rate of an aquifer exceeds its natural recharge rate, the water table is lowered. Any pollutant that is discharged onto the land above is also pulled into the aquifer and pollutes the groundwater resulting in polluted water in the nearby wells.
India receives most of her rainfall during the months of June to September. The monsoon in India is usually reasonably stable but varies geographically. In some years the commencement of the rains may be delayed considerably. The rains may also terminate earlier than usual. They may be heavier than usual over one part than over another.  All these may cause local floods or drought.  However in India even areas that receive adequate rainfall during the monsoon suffer from water shortages in the post monsoon period due to lack of storage facilities.
When the quality or composition of water changes directly or indirectly as a result of man’s activities such that it becomes unfit for any purpose it is said to be polluted.
Point sources of pollution:  When a source of pollution can be readily identified because it has a definite source and place where it enters the water it is said to come from a  point source. Eg. Municipal and Industrial Discharge Pipes. When a source of pollution cannot be readily identified, such as agricultural runoff, acid rain, etc, they are said to be  non-point sources  of pollution.
Sources of water pollution : (surface water) Disease causing agents  parasitic worms, bacteria, viruses, protozoa that enter water from domestic sewage and untreated human and animal wastes. Oxygen depleting wastes : These are organic wastes that can be decomposed by aerobic bacteria. The amount of oxygen required to break down a certain amount of organic matter is called BOD. It is an indicator of level of pollution. Inorganic plant nutrients  : There are water soluble nitrates and  phosphates Excess pesticides:  For control of pest pesticides are used in discriminately. These fall on ground and leach with rain water to canals and rivers. Water soluble organic chemicals : These are acids, salts and compounds of toxic metals such as mercury & lead . Variety of organic chemicals  : includes oil, gasoline, plastics, pesticides, detergents & many other chemicals. The sediments of suspended matter : Occur when soil is eroded. Water soluble radio active isotopes : Enter the water courses along with rain water. Hot water  released by power plants & industries that use large volume of water to cool the plant results in a rise in temp of local water bodies. Acid Mine drainage into rivers.
Ground water pollution : A greater threat to human life comes from ground water which is used for drinking and irrigation being polluted. Sources of ground water pollution : 1. Urban runoff of untreated or poorly treated waste water storage and garbage 2. Industrial waste storage located above or near aquifer 3. Agricultural practices such as application of large amounts of fertilizers and pesticides, animal feeding operations etc in rural sector 4. Leaks from under ground storage tanks containing gasoline and other hazardous substances 5. Leachate from land fills 6. Poorly designed and inadequately maintained septic tanks 7. Mining waters
Effects of Water pollution 1. Large amount of human waste in water increase the number of bacteria such as  Escherichia coli  and  streptococcus  sps which cause gastro intestinal diseases. Water borne diseases diarrhea, typhoid  etc. 2. If more organic matter is added to water the O2 is used up. This causes fish and other forms of O2 dependent aquatic life dies. 3. Eutrophication due to inorganic pollutants. 4. Excess pesticides cause Biomagnification. 5. High levels of organic chemicals (acids, salts& toxic metals) can make the water unfit to drink, harm fish and other aquatic life, reduce crop yields
6. Variety of organic chemicals / oil gasoline, plastics detergents) are harmful to aquatic life and human life 7. Sediments (erosion) fish, clog the lakes and artificial reservoirs 8. Radioisotopes cause birth defects, cancer and genetic damage.  9. Hot water because of thermal pollution not only decrease the solubility of O2 but also changes the breeding cycles of various aquatic organisms. 10. Accidental oil spills cause environmental damage. 11. Minamata disease is caused due to mercury poisoning of water. 12. Fluorine contamination in drinking water causes Fluorosis, NO3 contamination causes Blue baby disease (Methaemoglobinaceae) and PO4 contamination causes bone marrow disease. 13. Arsenic poisioning is the major effect mostly in West Bengal. Arsenicosis or arsenic toxicity develops after 2-5 years exposure to arsenic contaminated drinking water.
Eutrophication The term “eutrophic” means well-nourished; thus, “eutrophication” refers to natural or artificial addition of nutrients to bodies of water  It is the process by which a body of water acquires a high concentration of nutrients, especially phosphates and nitrates. These typically promote excessive growth of algae. As the algae die and decompose, high levels of organic matter and the decomposing organisms deplete the water of available oxygen, causing the death of other organisms, such as fish. Human society is impacted as well: eutrophication decreases the resource value of rivers, lakes, and estuaries such that recreation, fishing, hunting, and aesthetic enjoyment are hindered.  Health-related problems can occur where eutrophic conditions interfere with ndrinking water treatment.
Biomagnification Biomagnification , also known as  bioamplification  or  biological magnification , is the increase in concentration of a substance, such as the pesticide DDT, that occurs in a food chain as a consequence of: Persistence ( can't be broken down by environmental processes) Food chain energetics Low (or nonexistent) rate of internal degradation/excretion of the substance (often due to water-insolubility).  Biological Magnification often refers to the process whereby certain substances such as pesticides or heavy metals move up the food chain, work their way into rivers or lakes, and are eaten by aquatic organisms such as fish, which in turn are eaten by large birds, animals or humans. The substances become concentrated in tissues or internal organs as they move up the chain. For example, herring contains mercury at approximately 0.01 ppm and shark contains mercury at greater than 1 ppm (EPA, 1997).
Control measures of water pollution Setting up of effluent treatment plants to treat waste water can reduce the pollution load in the recipient water. The treated effluent can be reused either for gardening or cooling purposes or wherever possible. Root zone process has been developed by Thermax.  B y running contaminated water through the root zone of specially designed reed beds. These have the capacity to absorb from the surrounding air through their stomata openings. It creates O2 rich conditions where bacteria and fungi oxidize the wastes. Providing sanitation and waste water treatment facility. Integrated nutrient management (INM) and integrated pest management (IPM) practices will reduce the effects caused due to excess pesticides.

  • 1. Water Pollution Dr. Geetanjali Kaushik AIES
  • 2. Water Availability Water is the essential element that makes life on earth possible. Without water there would be no life. We usually take water for granted. Although 71% of the earth’s surface is covered by water only a tiny fraction of this water is available to us as fresh water. About 97% of the total water available on earth is found in oceans and is too salty for drinking or irrigation. The remaining 3% is fresh water. Of this 2.997% is locked in ice caps or glaciers. Thus only 0.003% of the earth’ total volume of water is easily available to us as soil moisture, groundwater, water vapour and water in lakes, streams, rivers and wetlands.
  • 3. Water Scarcity As freshwater becomes more scarce access to water resources will be a major factor in determining the economic growth of several countries around the world. The future wars in our world may well be fought over water.
  • 4. Water availability on the planet Water that is found in streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands and artificial reservoirs is called surface water . Water that percolates into the ground and fills the pores in soil and rock is called groundwater. Porous water-saturated layers of sand, gravel or bedrock through which ground water flows are called aquifers. Most aquifers are replenished naturally by rainfall that percolates downward through the soil and rock. This process is called natural recharge. If the withdrawal rate of an aquifer exceeds its natural recharge rate, the water table is lowered. Any pollutant that is discharged onto the land above is also pulled into the aquifer and pollutes the groundwater resulting in polluted water in the nearby wells.
  • 5. India receives most of her rainfall during the months of June to September. The monsoon in India is usually reasonably stable but varies geographically. In some years the commencement of the rains may be delayed considerably. The rains may also terminate earlier than usual. They may be heavier than usual over one part than over another. All these may cause local floods or drought. However in India even areas that receive adequate rainfall during the monsoon suffer from water shortages in the post monsoon period due to lack of storage facilities.
  • 6. When the quality or composition of water changes directly or indirectly as a result of man’s activities such that it becomes unfit for any purpose it is said to be polluted.
  • 7. Point sources of pollution: When a source of pollution can be readily identified because it has a definite source and place where it enters the water it is said to come from a point source. Eg. Municipal and Industrial Discharge Pipes. When a source of pollution cannot be readily identified, such as agricultural runoff, acid rain, etc, they are said to be non-point sources of pollution.
  • 8. Sources of water pollution : (surface water) Disease causing agents parasitic worms, bacteria, viruses, protozoa that enter water from domestic sewage and untreated human and animal wastes. Oxygen depleting wastes : These are organic wastes that can be decomposed by aerobic bacteria. The amount of oxygen required to break down a certain amount of organic matter is called BOD. It is an indicator of level of pollution. Inorganic plant nutrients : There are water soluble nitrates and phosphates Excess pesticides: For control of pest pesticides are used in discriminately. These fall on ground and leach with rain water to canals and rivers. Water soluble organic chemicals : These are acids, salts and compounds of toxic metals such as mercury & lead . Variety of organic chemicals : includes oil, gasoline, plastics, pesticides, detergents & many other chemicals. The sediments of suspended matter : Occur when soil is eroded. Water soluble radio active isotopes : Enter the water courses along with rain water. Hot water released by power plants & industries that use large volume of water to cool the plant results in a rise in temp of local water bodies. Acid Mine drainage into rivers.
  • 9. Ground water pollution : A greater threat to human life comes from ground water which is used for drinking and irrigation being polluted. Sources of ground water pollution : 1. Urban runoff of untreated or poorly treated waste water storage and garbage 2. Industrial waste storage located above or near aquifer 3. Agricultural practices such as application of large amounts of fertilizers and pesticides, animal feeding operations etc in rural sector 4. Leaks from under ground storage tanks containing gasoline and other hazardous substances 5. Leachate from land fills 6. Poorly designed and inadequately maintained septic tanks 7. Mining waters
  • 10. Effects of Water pollution 1. Large amount of human waste in water increase the number of bacteria such as Escherichia coli and streptococcus sps which cause gastro intestinal diseases. Water borne diseases diarrhea, typhoid etc. 2. If more organic matter is added to water the O2 is used up. This causes fish and other forms of O2 dependent aquatic life dies. 3. Eutrophication due to inorganic pollutants. 4. Excess pesticides cause Biomagnification. 5. High levels of organic chemicals (acids, salts& toxic metals) can make the water unfit to drink, harm fish and other aquatic life, reduce crop yields
  • 11. 6. Variety of organic chemicals / oil gasoline, plastics detergents) are harmful to aquatic life and human life 7. Sediments (erosion) fish, clog the lakes and artificial reservoirs 8. Radioisotopes cause birth defects, cancer and genetic damage. 9. Hot water because of thermal pollution not only decrease the solubility of O2 but also changes the breeding cycles of various aquatic organisms. 10. Accidental oil spills cause environmental damage. 11. Minamata disease is caused due to mercury poisoning of water. 12. Fluorine contamination in drinking water causes Fluorosis, NO3 contamination causes Blue baby disease (Methaemoglobinaceae) and PO4 contamination causes bone marrow disease. 13. Arsenic poisioning is the major effect mostly in West Bengal. Arsenicosis or arsenic toxicity develops after 2-5 years exposure to arsenic contaminated drinking water.
  • 12. Eutrophication The term “eutrophic” means well-nourished; thus, “eutrophication” refers to natural or artificial addition of nutrients to bodies of water It is the process by which a body of water acquires a high concentration of nutrients, especially phosphates and nitrates. These typically promote excessive growth of algae. As the algae die and decompose, high levels of organic matter and the decomposing organisms deplete the water of available oxygen, causing the death of other organisms, such as fish. Human society is impacted as well: eutrophication decreases the resource value of rivers, lakes, and estuaries such that recreation, fishing, hunting, and aesthetic enjoyment are hindered. Health-related problems can occur where eutrophic conditions interfere with ndrinking water treatment.
  • 13. Biomagnification Biomagnification , also known as bioamplification or biological magnification , is the increase in concentration of a substance, such as the pesticide DDT, that occurs in a food chain as a consequence of: Persistence ( can't be broken down by environmental processes) Food chain energetics Low (or nonexistent) rate of internal degradation/excretion of the substance (often due to water-insolubility). Biological Magnification often refers to the process whereby certain substances such as pesticides or heavy metals move up the food chain, work their way into rivers or lakes, and are eaten by aquatic organisms such as fish, which in turn are eaten by large birds, animals or humans. The substances become concentrated in tissues or internal organs as they move up the chain. For example, herring contains mercury at approximately 0.01 ppm and shark contains mercury at greater than 1 ppm (EPA, 1997).
  • 14. Control measures of water pollution Setting up of effluent treatment plants to treat waste water can reduce the pollution load in the recipient water. The treated effluent can be reused either for gardening or cooling purposes or wherever possible. Root zone process has been developed by Thermax. B y running contaminated water through the root zone of specially designed reed beds. These have the capacity to absorb from the surrounding air through their stomata openings. It creates O2 rich conditions where bacteria and fungi oxidize the wastes. Providing sanitation and waste water treatment facility. Integrated nutrient management (INM) and integrated pest management (IPM) practices will reduce the effects caused due to excess pesticides.
