Water Pollution: Is It As Big Of A Problem As We Think?
Water Pollution: Is it as big of a problem as we think? The following essay will be looking at the factors that cause pollution, and the effect that pollution has on our world today. It will also investigate what it has in store for the future if things do not improve. It will also explore some of the methods used to treat and clean-up wastewater, and oil spills. Today, the industrialization of Canada is severely affecting this nations lakes, streams, and rivers. If something is not done to impr

The Cause And Effects Of Acid Mine Drainage
The Cause and Effects of Acid Mine Drainage INTRODUCTION Imagine going fishing on a cool Autumn day, the trees are all different shades of orange, brown and red and the birds are singing their beautiful songs, but their is a serious problem because when you arrive at the river all plant and animal life are gone. This is by no means a recent phenomenon. This is due to the effects of acid rock drainage (ARD). This is a problem that has been occurring since ancient times, but it was not until the 1

Faster Dissolved Oxygen Test Kit Purpose The purpose of my project is to determine if there is any significant difference in dissolved oxygen (DO) levels as measured by the traditional HACH? method or the newly developed CHEMets? test kit under typical field conditions. Hypothesis My hypothesis is that there is no significant difference in dissolved oxygen (DO) levels as measured by the traditional HACH? method or the newly developed CHEMets? test kit under typical field conditions.

Nitrogen cycle The nitrogen cycle is the process by which nitrogen is converted between its various chemical forms. This transformation can be carried out via both biological and non-biological processes. Important processes in the nitrogen cycle includefixation, mineralization, nitrification, and denitrification. The majority of Earth's atmosphere (approximately 78%) is nitrogen,[1] making it the largest pool of nitrogen. However, atmospheric nitrogen is unavailable for biological use, leading

A history of the Kingston harbour Kingston Harbour has played an important role in the history of all the groups that have lived on the surrounding land. Its aquamarine waters provided fishing for the Tainos; a port for the Spanish, a port and naval base for British pirates and naval forces from which they attacked the Spanish Main, and home and business district for Jamaicans for over three centuries. Kingston harbour is the seventh largest natural harbour in the world. It is an almost landlock

Abstract This paper introduces the reader to the concept of water and waste water engineering. Water and waste water engineering falls in the field of environmental engineering which can be defined as the application of principles of science and engineering for the purpose of improving the environment. This caters for air, water and land resources. Therefore, environmental engineering aims at providing healthy air, water, and land for habitation of humans and other organisms. In a wider view, en
