물은 인간 뿐만 아니라 지구 생태계 전체를 조절하는 역할을 하기 때문에 더욱 중요할 수 밖에 없다. 산업혁명이후 빠른 산업 발달 및 경제 성장 등으로 지구는 환경오염에 시달리고 있다. 특히 수질오염은 더 큰 문제로 다가 오고 있다.
수질 오염은 여러 경로에서 발생하는데...

Agriculture- Sediment eroded from agricultural lands and overgrazed rangeland is the largest source.- Fertilizers, pesticides, bacteria from livestock and food processing wastes, and excess salt from soils of irrigated cropland.
Industry and Mining- Acidic compounds draining from active and abandoned subsurface and surface mines into streams can kill fish and other aquatic life.
Most of the 209 different PCBs are insoluble in water, soluble in fats, and resistant to biological and chemical degradation-properties that result in their accumulation in the tissues of organisms and their biological amplification in food chains and webs.
