Domestic, industrial and agricultural human activity has a harmful interference in the water quality that receive their waste, either by discharge (surface water) or infiltration through the soil (groundwater). As fresh waters are characterized by calm and warm water, they favour the growth of microbial life naturally. However, when they receive high loads of nitrates and phosphates, they tend to acquire a blue-green coloration as a result of the proliferation of algae (Eutrophication). This algae takes advantage of the propitious environment and of the excess of nutrients, caused by the incorporation of the two chemical species. In addition to the visual aspect, many ecological effects can arise. The accumulation of algae can lead to decreased dissolved oxygen content, causing the death of fish and other aquatic organisms, decreasing biodiversity and damaging water quality.
