Water pollution is defined as, ‘Any direct or indirect alteration of the physical, thermal, chemical, biological, radioactive properties of any part of the environment by, discharge, emission or deposit of wastes so as to affect any beneficial use adversely or to cause a condition, which is hazardous to public health, safety or welfare of animals, birds, wildlife, aquatic.

Pollution of the Ocean by Sewage, Nutrients, and Chemicals Coastal waters receive a variety of land-based water pollutants, ranging from petroleum wastes to pesticides to excess sediments.

Marine waters also receive wastes directly from offshore activities, such as ocean-based dumping (e.g., from ships and offshore oil and gas operations). Sewage is water-carried waste, in either solution or suspension that is intended to flow away from a community. It is known as waste water flows, sewage is the used water supply of the community.

It is more than % pure water and is characterized by its volume or rate of flow, its physical condition, its chemical.

This was re-enforced by the regional priority rankings of the Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Activities (GPA) categories, which showed sewage. Today, non-point source pollution — polluted runoff entering waterways from diffuse land-based activities — is the leading cause of water quality degradation to coastal waters (Pew, ).

Non-point source pollution includes runoff from agricultural and forestry land, storm water runoff from urban areas and discharges from on-site sewage.

Combined with industrial runoff, that comes to more than three billion liters of waste per day, a quantity well beyond the river. The coastal areas of India have some of the best developed industrial areas, metros and ports.

These all combined are a major contributor to the country's financial growth. It is sad that while striving for excellence in development we have failed to check the pollution of the rivers and oceans.

The Indian coastal waters are under considerable stress from the effluents discharged. The Indian River Lagoon’s crisis is man-made. Since the s, the population of the five counties around the lagoon has doubled.

Many of thehouses that surround Indian River Lagoon use septic tanks instead of a county or municipal sewage : FCIR. Most (80%) of ocean pollution comes as runoff from agriculture, industry, and domestic uses (Figure ).

From this time forth. EPA enforces federal clean water and safe drinking water laws, provides support for municipal wastewater treatment plants, and takes part in pollution prevention efforts aimed at protecting watersheds and sources of drinking water.

Biosolids are the nutrient-rich organic materials resulting from the treatment of sewage sludge. For all other waters (i.e., waters that are not coastal recreation waters), section (c) of the Clean Water Act and EPA's implementing regulations at 40 CFR part require States, Territories, and authorized Tribes to adopt criteria that are scientifically defensible and sufficient to protect the designated uses of those waters.
