Circumstantial relation between air pollution and atmospheric water contamination
- Water Interactions
The global population growth, which accompanied with industrial and economic increase, results increasing potable water demand which cannot supported by the customary natural water resources. Therefore, natural atmospheric precipitation might consider as a possible alternative. The use of atmospheric precipitation as alternative water resource raised the significant issue of public health risks associated with air pollution and microbiological pollutants, and determine the need of analysing their quality.
In this research, we are studying the circumstantial relation between air pollution and atmospheric water contamination through various issues. The method in which we will work includes sampling at a variety areas all over Israel: from polluted up to not contaminated, taking into account climatic conditions. We will examine selected pollutants according to the drinking water regulations and look for the causal link between air pollution and water pollution.
