With some six billion mobile subscriptions now in use worldwide, around three-quarters of the world’s inhabitants now have access to a mobile phone. Mobiles are arguably the most ubiquitous modern technology in some developing countries, more people have access to a mobile phone than to clean water, a bank account or even electricity. Mobile communications now offer major opportunities to advance human development from providing basic access to education or health information to making cash payments and stimulating citizen involvement in democratic processes.
In recent years, the awareness of water needs and processing
requirement has become an increasingly important topic.
As the earth's population increases the demand for "clean"
water has become an even larger factor in residential as
well as industrial and commercial costs. There are now
almost no natural water sources that do not require some
In 1972, the Clean Water Act (CWA) delineated the basic structure for regulating discharges of
pollutants into waters and for establishing quality standards for surface waters under the authority of
EPA . Under the CWA’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System program, stormwater
permits were required for sediment runoff from construction sites and discharges of pollutants into
surface waters . The permitting system requires adoption of technology-based and water quality-based
effluent limits [11,12].
Society uses water to generate and sustain economic
growth and prosperity, through activities such as farm-
ing, commercial ﬁ shing, energy production, manufactur-
ing, transport and tourism. Water is important in deciding
where we settle and how we use land. Water can also be
a source of geo-political conﬂ icts – in particular where
water shortages occur. For our own well-being, not only
clean drinking water but also clean water for hygiene and
sanitation is crucial.
Water contamination and the degradation and destruction of aquatic ecosystems is a problem of truly global dimensions and impedes sustainable development in poor countries because there is no clean water; there are waterborne diseases; and there is pollution and the lack of sanitation. This chapter provides knowledge of water pollution and its prevention.
Water supply and sanitation are amongst the most basic requirements of life. For the past 50 to 150 years people living
in Europe, America and a few capital cities elsewhere around the globe have come to take for granted the provision of a
virtually limitless supply of clean, safe water and the seemingly effortless removal of all human wastes ‘out of sight and
out of mind’.
The Clean Water Act was amended in 1977 and again in 1987 to extend the
deadlines for promulgation of and compliance with the standards. In addition, in 1987
the EPA was ordered to promulgate effluent guidelines for additional point source
The Clean Water Act was in the vanguard of a major change in the federal
government’s regulation of economic activity.
In 1972, the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (also referred to as the Clean Water Act (CWA))
was enacted, it provides that the discharge of pollutants to waters of the United States from any
point source is unlawful, unless the discharge is in compliance with a National Pollutant Discharge
Elimination System (NPDES) permit. The 1987 amendments to the CWA added section 402(p)
which establishes a framework for regulating municipal and industrial storm water discharges under
the NPDES program.
This meant that the plants were doing little in the beginning to clean the inflow. In the beginning
it was not known if the plants would survive such a harsh environment. But after five months the
plants have proven that they are a plant well designed for this environment. Some benefits about
these plants are that they produce no seed, have no rhizomes, and can only reproduce by physically
moving a piece of the plant. At five months, the plants are three feet in height and the root systems
are now reaching the bottom of...
On a national scale, or regional scale depending on the size of the country, the initial
step should be to conduct a water resources assessment. In this context, a water
resources assessment is an integrated activity, taking into account water pollution
control as well as more general water resources issues. At this very early stage it may
be difficult to determine whether a certain problem is purely one of water quality or
whether it also relates to the availability of water resources.
According to the traditional water pollution control approach, user-requirement issues
would often be overlooked because the identification of such problems is not based on
objectively verifiable indicators. Whereas an impact issue can be identified by the
presence of, for example, a pollution source or a human activity causing deterioration of
the aquatic resources (e.g. deforestation), user-requirement issues are identified by a
lack of water of adequate quality for a specific, intended use. ...
Clean renewable energy bonds (CREBs) present a low-cost opportunity for public entities to issue bonds to finance renewable energy projects. The federal government lowers the cost of debt by providing a tax credit to the bondholders in lieu of interest payments from the issuer. Because CREBs are theoretically interest free, they may be more attractive than traditional tax-exempt municipal bonds.
In February 2009, Congress appropriated a total of $2.4 billion for the “New CREBs” program.
Water and energy are two critical ingredients of modern civilization. Without clean water,
life cannot be sustained. Without energy, we cannot run computers, power homes or
manufacture products. As the world’s population grows in number and affluence, demand
for both resources is increasing faster than ever, with far-reaching implications for both
water scarcity and rising levels of global warming pollution.
Woefully underappreciated, however, is the fact that water and energy oftentimes compete
with one another.
Physical water resource constraints make companies more susceptible to reputational risks.
Declines in water availability and quality can increase competition for clean water. In water-scarce
regions, tensions can arise between businesses and local communities, particularly in developing
countries where local populations often lack access to safe and reliable drinking water. Community
opposition to industrial water withdrawals and perceived or real inequities in use can emerge
quickly and affect businesses profoundly.
Environmental problems usually develop from the interactions of people, consumption, and
resources. Increasing population, increasing consumption and limited resources exacerbate these
problems. One concern that heads the list of critical problems is the availability of clean, fresh,
surface water. It is the basis of the existence of human societies and economies. Fresh water is
essential for many forms of life, is required by humans for drinking, agriculture, and most industrial
processes, and plays a prominent role in our recreational activities....

It is very important that septic tanks and PTPs are kept in good working order by their
owners. The system should not cause pollution.
The grandest accomplishments of engineering took place in the twentieth century. The widespread development and distribution of electricity and clean water, automobiles and airplanes, radio and television, spacecraft and lasers, antibiotics and medical imaging, computers and the Internet are just some of the highlights from a century in which engineering revolutionized and improved virtually every aspect of human life. In this book, the authors provide a glimpse of the new trends of technologies pertaining to control, management, computational intelligence and network systems....
