Abstract

Despite dramatic improvements in the quality of many point source effluent discharges over the past 40 years, pollution of surface and coastal waters, as well as groundwater resources, is still a major problem. These persistent problem sources essentially comprise non-point source contamination. This book quantifies the environmental and ecological impacts of such urban and rural diffuse pollution in the UK and assesses their economic implications. The volume deals with individual diffuse pollutants, their modes of transport from air and land to receiving waters and their impacts. The synthesis provides detail of pollutants by source, identifies impacts on receiving waters and water users and highlights the likely cost implications of such impacts for the UK situation.
