In recent years, environmental issues have received considerable media coverage. Yet, because of the technical terms that often accompany such stories, it is sometimes difficult to analyze these reports. This guide will provide you with a concise reference to many environmental terms used in the news, especially those referenced with water pollution issues. It is hoped that with this guide, you will be able to more objectively view not only popular press news items, but also technical reports that may be prepared at the local, state or national level.
