Water Pollution: Causes, Effects And Control Is A Book Providing Comprehensive Information On The Fundamentals And Latest Developments In The Field Of Water Book Is Divided Into 28 Chapters Covering Almost All The Aspect Of Water Pollution Including Water Resources And General Properties Of Water; History Of Water Pollution And Legislation; Origin, Sources And Effects Of /5(7). Nowadays, environmental pressures affect urban groundwater systems, which are faced with increasing urban pressure, overexploitation, contamination/pollution issues, and climate variability. A paradigm shift based on holistic management is required to design sustainable water systems.
Groundwater issues have generated worldwide concern in recent decades. The problems are numerous: too little groundwater, too much groundwater, groundwater contaminated by either saline water or a broad spectrum of industrial and domestic pollutants. Many urban groundwater problems are not unique to any one region, which is the thinking behind. This book unravels the recent studies in the field of soil and groundwater pollution. Assessment of risks from water, soil and air pollution, effective and viable remedies, waste disposal strategies, techniques and methods for protection of soil and groundwater, etc., are some of the areas that have been discussed in the text.

The issue of urban groundwater encapsulates many modern problems: sustainability, rapid urbanization and rising living standards, pollution prevention, inadequate data, and complex management issues of optional use of resources. The story of each city is different but some themes are common, such as climates, geology and development status.
Urban Groundwater Pollution book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. More than 50% of the world's population already live in cities Pages: The book comprises two parts. The first part (Chapters ) gives a view of urban development from the groundwater perspective; the disparate and conflicting values of groundwater for water supply, efficient disposal, amenity and ecology; and overviews pollutants by type and by : Kindle.
Urban populations in sub-Saharan Africa are growing at a faster rate than in any other region in the world. The supply of water to many rapidly urbanising areas of sub-Saharan Africa depends upon groundwater supplied by manually pumped wells, spring discharges, and production boreholes equipped with motorised by: Urban Groundwater Pollution.

from book Groundwater Management in Asian Cities: Technology and Policy for Sustainability (pp) Groundwater contamination in urban areas is caused by a large variety of. In urban areas of Jordan, the infiltration of wastewater into the groundwater is the main source of groundwater pollution.
Pollution is caused by wastewater plants (e.g., Khirbet es Samra), factories that dump untreated waste into the tributaries of reservoir, which raises salinity, and contents of chemicals and metals (e.g., King Talal Dam). Invarious UN organizations launched a collaborative effort to assess the vulnerability of groundwater in several African cities.
The project addressed the issue of aquifer vulnerability and the protection of groundwater quality. This book is a collection of thirty peer-reviewed papers on the topic, and provides a glimpse of the situation across the continent. The book begins.

Abstract. Groundwater pollution in Turkey is examined. Important natural sources of groundwater pollution identified include seawater intrusion, discharges from contaminated lakes and streams, geothermal waters, and dissolution of minerals.
The occurrence and fate of UV filters (UV F) in an urban aquifer in correlation with (1) the spatial distribution of UV F in Barcelona’s groundwater, (2) the depth of the groundwater sample, (3) the physicochemical properties of the target compounds, (4) the recharge sources, and (5) the redox conditions of the Barcelona aquifers, were studied for the first time.
A regional ground‐water quality survey from 28 wells in the Coventry area of the United Kingdom identified widespread ground‐water pollution.
Chlorinated hydrocarbon solvents (CHSs) were detected at concentrations exceeding l microgram per liter (μg/I) in all industrial and public water supply wells within the urban area. Changing groundwater levels are causing problems in many cities and urban areas throughout the world.
Over-abstraction of water for prolonged periods has caused levels to fall with ensuing foundation settlement and structural damage caused by consolidation of the underlying strata, in addition to frequent deterioration of water quality.

--Characteristics of urban groundwater / Mike H. Barrett --Sources, types, characteristics and investigation of urban groundwater pollutants / Sheng Zhang et al. --Mature. Groundwater pollution (also called groundwater contamination) occurs when pollutants are released to the ground and make their way down into type of water pollution can also occur naturally due to the presence of a minor and unwanted constituent, contaminant or impurity in the groundwater, in which case it is more likely referred to as contamination rather than pollution.
The major contaminants in groundwater in urban areas were mixed pollution sources e.g. leachates from waste, effluents from industries, agricultural land and seepage from soak-away or septic tanks, soil and mineral dust. The varimax PCA revealed the major sources of pollution to groundwater.
Groundwater interactions with surface water and sewers in an urban setting are complex, and classic hydrogeological approaches must be combined with anthropogenic elements to characterize them.
The level of detail needed to understand these interactions is illustrated by the analysis of an urban subcatchment in the megacity of Shenzhen in.

In developing countries, it commonly results from indiscriminate disposal of municipal (especially extensive use of on-site sanitation systems) wastes, industrial. Urban areas can impose significant loads of nitrogen, as ammonium or nitrate, onto the underlying groundwater.
There are many sources of nitrogen pollution, including diffuse sources (parks and gardens), intense point sources (industrial chemical spills), and multi‐point sources (leaking sewers).common (Lerner, ).
Sewers leak, as shown by the many examples of groundwater pollution below cities sewage. Many urban areas do not have sewers, relying on septic tanks and soakaways to dispose of effluents - this water must recharge groundwater.
For example in Bermuda, with an average rainfall of mm/yr, water supply is from roof.
