In His Own Words

About Him

Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans,aquifers and groundwater). This form of environmental degradation occurs whenpollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water bodies without adequatetreatment to remove harmful compounds.
Water pollution affects the entire biosphere - plants and organisms living in thesebodies of water. In almost all cases the effect is damaging not only to individualspecies and population, but also to the natural biological communities.
Introduction

Pollution in the Lachine Canal, Canada
Water pollution is a major global problem which requires ongoing evaluation and revision ofwater resource policy at all levels (international down to individual aquifers and wells). It has been suggested that water pollution is the leading worldwide cause of deaths and diseases,[1][2] and that it accounts for the deaths of more than 14,000 people daily.[2] An estimated 580 people in India die of water pollution related illness every day.[3] About 90 percent of the water in the cities of China is polluted.[4] As of 2007, half a billion Chinese had no access to safe drinking water.[5] In addition to the acute problems of water pollution indeveloping countries, developed countries also continue to struggle with pollution problems. For example, in the most recent national report on water quality in the United States, 45 percent of assessed stream miles, 47% of assessed lake acres, and 32 percent of assessedbays and estuarine square miles were classified as polluted.[6] The head of China's national development agency said in 2007 that one quarter the length of China's seven main rivers were so poisoned the water harmed the skin.[7]

About His Ideal Match

Non-point sources
Nonpoint source pollution refers to diffuse contamination that does not originate from a single discrete source. NPS pollution is often the cumulative effect of small amounts of contaminants gathered from a large area. A common example is the leaching out of nitrogen compounds from fertilized agricultural lands. Nutrient runoff in storm waterfrom "sheet flow" over an agricultural field or a forest are also cited as examples of NPS pollution.
Contaminated storm water washed off of parking lots, roads and highways, called urban runoff, is sometimes included under the category of NPS pollution. However, because this runoff is typically channeled into storm drain systems and discharged through pipes to local surface waters, it becomes a point source.
Groundwater pollution
Main article: Groundwater pollution
Interactions between groundwater and surface water are complex. Consequently, groundwater pollution, also referred to as groundwater contamination, is not as easily classified as surface water pollution.[8] By its very nature, groundwater aquifers are susceptible to contamination from sources that may not directly affect surface water bodies, and the distinction of point vs. non-point source may be irrelevant. A spill or ongoing release of chemical or radionuclide contaminants into soil (located away from a surface water body) may not create point or non-point source pollution but can contaminate the aquifer below, creating a toxic plume. The movement of the plume, called a plume front, may be analyzed through a hydrological transport model orgroundwater model. Analysis of groundwater contamination may focus on soil characteristics and site geology, hydrogeology,hydrology, and the nature of the contaminants.
