  • Total dissolved solids
    Total dissolved solids (TDS) is a measure of the combined content of all inorganic and organic substances contained in a liquid in molecular, ionized or micro-granular (colloidal sol) suspended form.
  • Environmental chemistry
    Environmental chemistry is the scientific study of the chemical and biochemical phenomena that occur in natural places.
  • Eutrophication
    Eutrophication (Greek: eutrophia (from eu "well" + trephein "nourish".); German: Eutrophie), or more precisely hypertrophication, is the depletion of oxygen in a water body, which kills aquatic animals.
  • Tap water
    Tap water (running water, city water, municipal water, etc.) is water supplied to a tap (valve).
  • Bioassay
    Bioassay (commonly used shorthand for biological assay or assessment), or biological standardization is a type of scientific experiment.
  • Straw
    Straw is an agricultural by-product, the dry stalks of cereal plants, after the grain and chaff have been removed.
  • Trichloroethylene
    The chemical compound trichloroethylene (C2HCl3) is a halocarbon commonly used as an industrial solvent.
  • Water purification
    Water purification is the process of removing undesirable chemicals, biological contaminants, suspended solids and gases from contaminated water.
  • Water cooling
    Water cooling is a method of heat removal from components and industrial equipment.
  • Fish kill
    The term fish kill, known also as fish die-off, refers to a localized die-off of fish populations which may also be associated with more generalized mortality of aquatic life.
  • Blackwater (waste)
    Blackwater is used to describe wastewater containing feces, urine and flushwater from flush toilets along with anal cleansing water (if water is used for cleansing) or toilet paper.
  • Injection well
    An injection well is a device that places fluid deep underground into porous rock formations, such as sandstone or limestone, or into or below the shallow soil layer.
  • Sanitary sewer
    A sanitary sewer or "foul sewer" is an underground carriage system specifically for transporting sewage from houses and commercial buildings through pipes to treatment or disposal.
  • Industrial waste
    Industrial waste is the waste produced by industrial activity which includes any material that is rendered useless during a manufacturing process such as that of factories, industries, mills, and mining operations.
  • Urban runoff
    Urban runoff is surface runoff of rainwater created by urbanization.
  • Check dam
    A check dam is a small, sometimes temporary, dam constructed across a swale, drainage ditch, or waterway to counteract erosion by reducing water flow velocity.
  • Erosion control
    Erosion control is the practice of preventing or controlling wind or water erosion in agriculture, land development, coastal areas, river banks and construction.
  • Water quality
    Water quality refers to the chemical, physical, biological, and radiological characteristics of water.
  • Automotive oil recycling
    Automotive oil recycling involves the recycling of used oils and the creation of new products from the recycled oils, and includes the recycling of motor oil and hydraulic oil.
  • Greywater
    Greywater (also spelled graywater, or grey water/gray water) or sullage is all wastewater generated in households or office buildings from streams without fecal contamination, i.
  • Waste management in Thailand
    Thais per capita generate an estimated 1.
  • Blackwater (coal)
    Blackwater is a form of pollution produced in coal preparation.
