A study on the water pollution of Kayalpattinam area, Tuticorin, Tamilnadu
Industries without a concern for the environment deteriorate the land, water and air in an area. When the industrial activity is located in the coastal zone the harm it causes to the varied components of the environment becomes irreparable. Unless the nature and consequences of pollution are understood properly and preventive measures are adopted the area not only the land but also the adjoining sea would witness the effects of physical, chemical and organic pollutants released from the industry. A case study of pollution of the surface and subsurface water nearer to coast is presented to highlight the need for the remedial measures.
