Environmental aspects of uranium mining (updated april 2017) meanwhile air and water pollution must be avoided these processes are common to all metalliferous mining, and are well recognised and understood this is also the basis of other iso certification, such as for audits, reporting and life cycle assessment. The effects of many forms of water pollution multiply as they move up the food chain this gives us no choice but to be concerned about them after all, we are at the top of the food chain a pollutant's damage to the food chain depends on various factors. The effects of water pollution are far-reaching our ecosystem is affected on every level by water contamination not only do we have to worry about unhealthy particles reaching our drinking water, but also crops, animals, and our oceans are greatly harmed by this.
The hydrologic cycle is the continuous recycling of water between the oceans and atmosphere evaporation is the movement of water from an ocean or a lake to the atmosphere transpiration by plants contributes to atmospheric water content. Oceans are the largest water bodies on the planet earth over the last few decades, surplus human activities have severely affected the marine life on the earth’s oceans ocean pollution, also known as marine pollution, is the spreading of harmful substances such as oil, plastic, industrial and.

Agriculture, mining, oil drilling, and many other industries dump chemical wastes into water sources this makes the water unsafe to drink or to use for preparing food, for bathing, or for irrigation.
Known as impervious cover, the water cycle is stormwater runoff can lead to increased flooding, erosion, pollution and decreased. Different countries use different amounts of water, but we all tend to use them in the same ways, and some of these actions can impact on the water cycle – generating hydroelectricity, irrigation, deforestation and the greenhouse effect, as well as motor vehicle use and animal farming. Runoff of course occurs during storms, and much more water flows in rivers (and as runoff) during storms for example, in 2001 during a major storm at peachtree creek in atlanta, georgia, the amount of water that flowed in the river in one day was 7 percent of all the streamflow for the year.
