Excerpt
The problem The importance o f the problem was succinctly stated i n the report of the WHO Scientific Group on the Treatment and Disposal of Wastes convened in 1966 .to advise WHO on the planning of a wastes diarposal programme: The disposal of wastes nust take place w i t h i n a closed environment comprising only earth, a i r , and water. When the liquid, solid or gaseous residues from waste treatment are disposed of, they must be discharged into one or more of these phases of the environment. Any or a l l of the phases may be polluted, and any solution to the ~ e n e r a l a problem of the disposal of wmtes therefore involves a decision as to which part of the environment can accept residues with least damage to the whole. In other words, in deciding on a s i t e for the disposal of residues, their total effect on the environment must be studied. Wastes must no longer be transferred from one environmental phase to another vrSthout study, This is particularly important in view of the faat that some residues persist permanently.
