Hiroshi Kumagai, Takahiro Kuba

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter introduces Fukuoka Prefecture as an example of measures taken by an administrative body toward preservation of the aquatic environment. Explanations are given about various standard items concerning water quality. These are the decision-making standards that apply when measures must be taken. In addition, methods to reduce the pollution burden of water, as well as methods to encourage natural purification, are introduced. The water monitoring condition, current condition of water quality, and improvement in water quality in the past 40 years are shown. At the same time, a description is given of problems that will be encountered when proceeding with aquatic habitat preservation from now on.
