River pollution is a result of a complex combination of processes that reduce overall river water quality. . Acid rain, . Industrial pollution . Agricultural pollution contribute to river pollution . Everyday activities that drain untreated pollutants and leachate into rivers and streams … . Transport: - where carbon and one-drop-at-a-time 'oil spills' can also cause pollution through storm run-off . A holistic and integrative understanding of the cause-effect cycles of river pollution is an effective starting point to improve river water quality.Water pollution is a complex issue - from the source of polution to its impacts, both short-term and long-term on human and other species that depend on water. Point and non-point sources of pollution have a profound impact on the degree of pollution, and many times the actual causes are hidden behind more 'visible' causes. Understanding these causes-behind-causes is critical in developing appropriate responses to reduce pollution. Broad-based awareness of the sources and impacts of pollution - involving a number of stakeholders on the water continuum - is also important to effect lasting solutions..

Answer . consult an animal doctor and take the medicine they give you.. Answer . There are a number of preventative medications on the market. After a simple test, your veterinarian will prescribe them to you. The test must be preformed to make sure your pet has not already become infected. Tre…ating an animal that is already infected could cause complications. The most common medications are in tablet or pill form and given orally once a month during 'mosquito season'. There are also topical treatments for dogs such as Advantix that will help keep mosquitoes away from your pet. However, this is not actually marketed as a preventative for heart worms. It is just an extra step. It also helps not let stagnant water accumulate in your yard where your pet may drink it. This is where mosquito larvae will be. ( Full Answer )

New techniques that need no water is highly beneficial. Some of the wet processes is replaced by the dry processes. For example, metal pickling once carried out by acids is replaced by sand blasting in which no liquid effluent is generated. . To minimize the volume of effluents, the waste water tha…t is less polluted may be used in rinsing. For instance, in the mercerizing of yarn, the final rinse water containing little alkali is used for the first and second rinsing of yarn containing excess alkali. . Concentrated wastes, low in volume, are mingled with diluted waste for treatment or disposal. It can be segregated from other streams of diluted wastes, for reduction in pollution load and the diluted wastes after minor treatment is utilised for irrigation. This method is used for treating tannery effluents. . Small industries cannot afford treatment plants as they frequently discharge their effluents, near agricultural lands and on roads. It can be avoided by setting up a common effluent treatment plant where industries are located. . Waste can be converted into wealth. For instance, in our country distilleries can set up bio-gas plants which are fed by their effluents resulting in reduction in fuel costs and decrease in effluent's strength. . The sludge obtained is a problem. The sludge from pulp and paper industry may be used for manufacturing boards used in packing or in preparation of artificial wooden panels while those from the electroplating industry may form water-proofing compounds. . Recovery of chemicals and metals is practiced in most industries. The reclaimed waste water can be reused for industrial processes such as boiler, feeding, cooling, which will help cut down the fresh water needs. And paper mills, sugar industries and distilleries that let out more effluents can be used for irrigation or as fertilizers after proper treatment, without affecting ground water. ( Full Answer )

Some towns and cities actually have laws and limists as to the noise pollution that its citizens can make. If you individually wanted to reduce noise pollution you could try some eay things like.... Rake leaves by hand, don't use a noisy leaf blower.. Trim bushes or shrubs by hand, don't use a no…isy bush trimmer.. Sound proof rooms that might have music conducted in them, like a room with a piano or if someone in the hosue plays drums or guitar or whatever. This can be done simply with curtains, window inserts, carpeting, and closing windows and doors.. Don't blast music on the radio or computer or speakers. Be considerate of your own ears and those of other around you.. Don't slam doors / car doors, close them eaily and with only as much force as needed. (People don't usually think of this, but imagine - how loud is it when you slam your car door? Pretty tolerable. But imagine thousands of people doing so. Now that can start to get loud.. Turn off the TV or radio when you aren't actually fully listening to it.. Train your dog not to bark so much.. Don't yell. Have civil conversations. Call someone or go find them instead of yelling across the street for them, for example.. Plant trees and bushes around you house. They help keep the air clean, absorb sound, give privacy, and add nice design and looks to a house.. Do noisy things (dishes, hammering, ect.) over or on a rubber mat to reduce noise.. Put carpets, rugs, mats, throw rugs, ect. in your house / mats outside.. Put fabric window coverings instead of plastic or wooden shades / blinds.. Don't rev up a motorcycle or car unless it is actually needed for the drive.. Don't beep your carn horn "just because", make sure it is a legitamate reason. ( Full Answer )

1. Vaccination is the key for the prevention of this disease. Therefore, a strict vaccination schedule must be followed. Tetanus usually occurs among those persons who are either not vaccinated at all, or to whom proper dosages have not been given. Therefore, all children should be immunized and thi…s immunization should be maintained throughout life by administering booster dosages of tetanus vaccine at regular intervals. Also, all pregnant mothers should get a cover of vaccination. If the mother is already vaccinated, booster dosages must be administered. In addition to the above, in all cases of injury or wounds, vaccination must be done as a preventive measure, even if the injury is small. Besides injuries, tetanus vaccination is also indicated in the case of ear discharge (otitis media), as these cases are likely to get tetanus through perforations in their ear-drums. Tetanus vaccination is essential as a preventive measure before minor/major operations. At the same time, a precise regimen of sterilization must be practiced so as to avoid the incidence of tetanus in operated cases, as is noticed occasionally. Since an attack of tetanus does not give immunity to the patient against tetanus, therefore, those cases of tetanus that recover from the disease need to be administered tetanus vaccine for future prevention. 2. The second most important step in the prevention of tetanus is immediate care of the wound. Roadside injuries should be given very careful attention as accidental wounds are almost always contaminated with tetanus spores and are likely to cause tetanus. Apart from a thorough cleaning of the wound, all foreign bodies; debris, etc. must be carefully removed, and if need be, even the whole wound may be surgically excised under anesthesia so that the wound becomes thoroughly sterile. This is especially required when the wound is mutilated one. If this little step, though of very high importance, regarding treatment of the wound is kept in mind, it will serve as a very helpful measure in the prevention of tetanus. 3. Hygienic conditions must be maintained both at home and outside. One should not walk barefoot even in one's house. All types of injury have to be avoided as far as possible, especially in the case of children. 4. Early warning signals of tetanus must always be kept in mind, especially 'lockjaw', so that even if tetanus occurs, early urgent preventive/therapeutic steps can be taken, so that the disease is prevented from proceeding to an advanced stage, and the life of the patient is saved. It may be concluded that it is only by following the above preventive measures religiously that one can succeed in overcoming this deadly disease in all respects. And for that a prophylactic strategy is the urgent need at the national level.. ( Full Answer )
