    all these Topics are of great importance.The information and awareness must be passed on to every EPA across the globe.we must share our knowledge and expertise to reduce pollution level of our streams,rivers and water bodies. The situation in the third world countries are the worst,hence it s the need of the day to transfer technology to the Asian countries for the minimization of the problems at least.Also grant in Aid must be given because these countries have no enough Financial resources to over come the problems.
