Concepts Covering Water Pollution 710652

ABSTRACT

Efforts, made before 1960, to control waste seepage into our waterways are compared with society's attempts at this control during the past 10 years.

Although many laws (two are discussed in detail) have been passed in recent years, they will not be effective until each individual becomes concerned and assumes his share of responsibility.

Removal of pollutants is inadequate unless disposal of the removed pollutant avoids recontamination. Also, the importance of careful design of incinerator equipment and properly operated landfills must not be overlooked.
