Way of Solving the Water Pollution Problem in Al Ain Region

0 Comment

41000 Because of the environmental concerns relating to the effects of the radioactive materials, there was a need to research the state of the environment to determine the extent and quantity of radioactive components within the Al Ain region (Environmental Agency 1). This is because radioactive materials generated from nuclear plants due to accidents are dangerous and can have an immense negative impact on the environment with extreme cases resulting in the death of various forms of biodiversity.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp. To achieve this mission, there is a need to collect data from the environment to use for the examination of the situation. Data collection entailed sampling of water in the environment. First, with assistance from environmental experts and chemical analysts, groundwater samples from the plant’s premises are collected for lab testing and further examination. Consequently, I would collect water samples from the neighboring regions. This step aims to use the data for comparison and further analysis and decision-making (Bodansky 23). Afterward, chemical experts take these samples into the lab for examination and analysis.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp. After examination and analysis, the results obtained from the two samples indicate the presence of radioactive materials in the environment. Water samples collected within the plant’s locality indicate a high concentration of iodine – 131, a radioactive material compared to those collected some distance away from the nuclear plant (Nuclear world Association 1). Since the water table in Al Ain is close to the surface thereby feeding the natural springs commonly used by citizens, the underground water is certainly complicated.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp.&nbsp. Despite the level of contamination is low, it is not suitable for human or animal use. This is because the use of such water has long-term health effects associated with chronic diseases (Nuclear world Association 1). It, therefore, means that such water is not good for use since most of the waterholes are shallow. However, the concentration is not high as was earlier indicated. Despite the presence of radioactive in moderate quantities, there is a need to deal with the situation by getting rid of these harmful chemicals from the environment. This is a cautionary measure aimed at ensuring complete clearance of the environment of the radioactive element.
