Impact of barge movement on phytoplankton abundance and biomass was assessed in the lower stretch of river Ganga, popularly known as Bhagirathi-Hooghly river, during April to March, United State Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) maximum contamination levels for heavy metal concentration in air, soil and water. Heavy metal Max conc. in air (mg/m3) Max. conc. in sludge (soil) (mg/ Kg or ppm) Max. conc. in drinking water (mg/l) Max conc. in H 20 supporting aquatic life (mg/l or ppm) Cd 85

EPA also collected data on whether the CS2 discharges would impact human health or aquatic life. Tobacco Products Processing Detailed Study (PDF) (86 pp, K, November , R) EPA studied wastewater discharges from the tobacco products industry to determine: 1. Of the sites with at least one metal elevated above natural levels, 39 % occurred near population centers, industrial discharge sites, or military bases (Figure ). The remaining sites with at least one metal elevated above natural levels were located in the lower Mississippi River area (7 %) and near agricultural watersheds (54 %) suggesting.

metals are industrial, petroleum contamination and sewage disposal (Santos et al., ). Metal ions can be incorporated into food chains and concentrated in aquatic organisms to a level that affects their physiological state. Of the effective pollutants are the heavy metals which have drastic environmental impact on all organisms. Trace. Key words: cadmium, chromium, effluent, heavy metal, water pollution INTRODUCTION In India the environmental pollution through industrial effluent has become a cause of concern at various levels (Chauhan et al, ). The air, soil and water pollution by industrial effluent are associated.

The impact of the discharges has been estimated both in terms of the effect on non-human biota and the radiological impact for people. In the s the radiation dose rates to marine biota in the region around a phosphate plant on the north-west coast of England were as high due to the discharges from the phosphate plant as those near to the Cited by: ().

International Journal of Cited by:   Annual environmental monitoring programmes around Sellafield Ltd and the north-west coast of England (and beyond), have monitored radionuclide specific activities in sediments and biota at locations in both Morecambe Bay and the Solway Firth for many years (MAFF, –, Environment Agency et al., –, Environment Agency et al., ).Cited by: 2.

The samples were collected between the years of andthus this study reviews the condition of the Gulf in mid’ s as revealed by a classification of the degree of heavy metal.

Low taxa richness, EPT richness and the high relative abundance of a single taxon indicated impairment and may have been residual impacts of episodic pollution or impacts from chronic low level sediment metal contamination. Stillwater River below Clarks Creek (S7) This site had the highest biointegrity (95%) in the study area.

It not only considers heavy metal level in the soil, but also associates ecological and environmental effects with toxicology, and evaluates pollution using compar-able and equivalent property index grading method [37].

According to this method, the potential ecological risk coefficient Ei.

During the last decades there has been extensive increase in the levels of urbanization and industrialization along its coastal area. Therefore, the present work attempts to determine the status of heavy metals distribution in sediment samples, and their ecological risk assessment in the studied area.

industrial effluents leading to serious impacts on biota due to Due to intense industrial activities in the upstream zones and several anthropogenic factors (Mitra and Choudhury, ).

The organic and inorganic wastes released from these industries and urban units contain substantial concentrations of heavy metals (Abhijit Mitra and.

Since the s, pollution of the marine environment has been observed around the world, and a general awareness of the potential environmental hazards from contaminants arose.

This general awareness was followed by implementation of environmental regulations at the national and international levels regarding industrial discharges, and forcing the development of management.

The discharge of drainage water directly into the shallow intertidal zone may have an adverse impact on the marine environment. The average quantity discharged is approximately × m3 year−1. Biomonitoring in Malaysia mainly focuses on the use of the green lipped mussel species to study bioaccumulation patterns of contaminants.

Early work commenced in Penang waters in the s (Sivalingam,Sivalingam and Bhaskaran,Sivalingam et al., ).Later in the following decade, Ismail () reported heavy metal levels in Perna viridis from the west coast of Peninsular. In sediment samples, the metal levels in summer season were higher for all metals.

All metal levels in the sediment samples were higher than those in biota samples. In the sea water samples metal levels close to each other. However Fe levels were higher in autumn while Mn in summer (Table 1).

Among the biota samples, higher Zn and Pb levels were. Due to the improper discharge of partially treated industrial waste water and domestic sewage water into the Uppanar river, the level of heavy metals recorded in water of the downstream and the heavy metals other than Zn and Mn in the water of upstream were generally high and their values exceeded the maximum permissible limit when compared.

Metal contamination in water, sediment and biota from a semi-enclosed coastal area Article (PDF Available) in Environmental Monitoring and Assessment (5) September with Reads. This study identifies and quantifies the spatial variations of metal contamination in water, sediment and biota: the common cockle (Cerastoderma edule) and the Mermaid’s glove sponge (Haliclona oculata), within a heavily anthropogenically impacted semi-enclosed estuarine–coastal area with a low ability to disperse and flush contaminants (Poole Harbour, UK).

Petroleum contamination is a growing environmental concern that harms both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. However, the public and regulatory and scientific communities have given more attention to the contamination of marine habitats.

This is because marine oil spills can have a serious economic impact on coastal activities, as well as on those who exploit the resources of the sea.
