This book describes environmental problems encountered in the UK and in other developed countries at the close of the twentieth century. Environmental pollution is being brought under control by environmental laws and environmental improvements. In the water sector, there are European Commission Directives that deal with water quality, marine life, limits on releases of hazardous substances and standards for effluents discharged into rivers and seas. There are also European Union laws that cover disposal of solid wastes, reducing emissions of acid gases and carbon dioxide and controls on the movement of radioactive and other hazardous wastes.

Keywords:   environmental pollution, environmental laws, European Commission, water quality, effluents, European Union, acid gases, radioactive wastes, hazardous wastes
