Introduction Humanity and Environment A characteristic, which has set Homo sapiens apart from other species, has been their ability to control many aspects of their environment. Throughout recorded history people have continually struggled to manage their natural environment in order to improve their health and well-being. In recent years environmental sanitation in many parts of the world has led to large reduction or virtual elimination of diseases spread via the environment. The population explosion, an affluent society with desires for a vast array of products, increased radiations, greater energy use, increased food production needs, and other developments have created strains on parts of the ecological systems.

Over the years, intensification of old problems and the introduction of new ones have led to basic changes in the philosophy of environmental engineering practice. Water is one of the materials required to sustain life and has long been suspected of being the source of many of the illnesses of man.

It was not until a little over years ago that definite proof of disease transmission through water was established.

Originally the major objectives were to produce hygienically safe water supplies and to dispose off wastes in a manner that would prevent the development of nuisance conditions.

Many other factors concerned with aesthetics, economics, recreation and other elements of better living are important considerations and have become part of the responsibilities of the modern environmental engineer.

The public has been more exacting in their demands as time has passed, and today water engineers are expected to produce finished waters that are free of colour, turbidity, taste, odour and harmful metal ions.

In addition, the public desires water, which is low in hardness and total solids, non-corrosive, and non-scale forming. To meet with such stringent standards, chemists, biologists and engineers must combine their efforts and talents together and hence the need for analytical testing of water and waste becomes necessary.

Environmental engineering is perhaps most demanding in this respect, for it requires the use of not only the conventional measuring devices employed by engineers but, in addition many of the techniques and methods of measurement used by chemists, physicists and some of those used by biologists. Every problem in environmental engineering must be approached initially in a manner that will define the problem.

This approach necessitates the use of analytical methods and procedures in the field and laboratory, which have proved to yield reliable results.

Once the problem has been defined quantitatively, the engineer is usually in a position to design facilities that will provide a satisfactory solution. After construction of the facilities has been completed and they have been placed in operation, usually constant supervision employing quantitative procedure is required to maintain economical and satisfactory performance. The increase in population density and new developments in industrial technology are constantly intensifying old problems and creating new ones.

In addition, engineers are forever seeking more economical methods of solving old problems. Research is continuously under way to find answers to the new problems and better answers to old ones. Quantitative analysis will continue to serve as the basis for such studies.

Character of Problems Most problems in environmental engineering practice involve relationships between living organisms and their environment. Because of this, the analytical procedures needed to obtain quantitative information are in often a strange mixture of chemical and biochemical methods, and interpretation of the data is usually related to the effect on microorganisms or human beings.

Also, many of the determination used fall into the realm of microanalysis because of the small amounts of contaminants present in the samples. Ordinarily, the amounts determined are a few milligrams per litre and often they are found only in few micrograms. Standard Methods of Analysis Concurrent with the evaluation of environmental engineering practice, analytical methods have been developed to obtain the factual information required for the resolution and solution of problems.

In many cases different methods have been proposed for the same determination, and many of them were modified in some manner.

As a result, analytical data obtained by analysis were often in disagreement. Use and over-utilization of surface and groundwater, Floods, Drought, Conflicts over water, dams-benefits, and problems.
