Abstract Most Americans know quite a lot about water pollution. Individually we may not know too much about chemistry, biology or oceanography, but we do know that our waters are in serious trouble. We see and hear evidence of water pollution everywhere we go. What happened. Simply this: as our industry and population grew, we produced more and more industrial and human waste. Soon we were producing more than Nature's own purification system could handle, and our waters became overloaded with impurities. Now many of our lakes and rivers, harbors and bays are a national disgrace because they are fouled with human and animal wastes, chemicals and oil, sludge, and debris of all kinds.
