Effluent from electroplating contains a number of heavy metal constituents. Heavy metals, copper in particular, may be toxic to fish as well as harmful to human health, In the past quarter century, a considerable incidence of surface water contamination by hazardous and carcinogenic organic compounds was reported in the United States. The sources of contamination include effluent from petrochemical industries and agricultural runoff, which contains both pesticide and fertilizer residues. ~ o i 'I= • ~" .

Acid mine drainage has polluted surface waters since the beginning of ore mining. Sulfur-laden water leaches from mines, including old and abandoned mines as well as active ones, and contains sulfur compounds that oxidize to sulfuric acid on contact with air. The resulting acidity of the stream or lake into which this water drains is often high enough to kill the aquatic ecosystem. The effects of water pollution can be best understood in the context of an aquatic ecosystem, by studying one or more specific interactions of pollutants with that ecosystem.

SOURCES OF WATER POLLUTION Water pollutants are categorized as point source or nonpoint source, the former being identified as all dry weather pollutants that enter watercourses through pipes or channels. Storm drainage, even though the water may enter watercourses by way of pipes or channels, is considered nonpoint source pollution. 31 32 ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION AND CONTROL Other nonpoint source pollution comes from farm runoff, construction sites, and other land disturbances, discussed further in Chapter 10.
