Effects of wastewater effluent discharge on stream quality in Indian Creek, Johnson County, Kansas. Contaminants from point and other urban sources affect stream quality in Indian Creek, which is one of the most urban drainage basins in Johnson County, Kansas. The Johnson County Douglas L. Smith Middle Basin and Tomahawk Creek Wastewater Treatment Facilities discharge to Indian Creek. Effect of waste water effluent on fishes at different concentrations: Effect study The First set of aquarium was taken having capacity of 20 ltr, followed by addition of 15 ltr untreated waste water effluent without any dilution from sampled Quantity. Untreated waste water from industries discharge on surface water is the leading cause of high biochemical oxygen demand, nitrate, phosphate and low oxygen contents on river. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of industrial waste disposal on surface water quality of U-tapao by: 4. Effects of hospital wastewater on aquatic ecosystem discharges, river and stream waters. Approximately one-half of the clofibrate consumed in this area is discharged into the Missouri.

But for the conditions that prevail in wastewater from fish cutting plants this dose will not be acceptable without a proper pretreatment of the water. For. Yersinia ruckeri the dose to induce a 3 log reduction is mg/l for more than 2 hours in full-scale tests using wastewater from fish cutting plants. They depend not only on the degree of contamination but also on the quality of the supply water: in one analysis of fish filleting wastewater it was found that 65 % of the total solids present in the effluent were already in the supply water (Gonzalez et al., ). Temperature. Human activities are also responsible for pollution of water leading to fish mortality, for example, accidental oil spills, drainage discharge of pesticides and herbicides from agricultural land.   How Does Wastewater Affect the Environment Unfortunately, in developing countries, wastewater is directly pumped into freshwater bodies or sea, without using a treatment system. In other parts of the world, the lack of adequate wastewater treatment infrastructure and sometimes outdated systems jeopardize the treatment efforts.

develop and sustain its water and sanitation infrastructure in order to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Within this context there is increasing concern regarding the quality of South Africa’s water resources (2) and the contribution of untreated effluent or poorly treated waste water discharges to the deteriorating water quality. In order to assess the effects of this wastewater effluent, fish were caged in the Colastiné River at the following three sites: at a reference site, located 2 km upstream from the sewage effluent (site upstream) (a natural area without having any known industrial and domestic sewage); at immediately ( km; site effluent) and 2 km downstream (site downstream) from the sewage effluent site ().Cited by: The effects of discharge of municipal wastes on water quality within the lower Mississippi River below Old River have been reevaluated using published water quality data in the Louisiana reach of the river for the water years A novel graphical technique has facilitated the evaluation of upriver controls on water quality and the identification of sources and sinks along the lower Mississippi.
