We have a lot of books in the collection that deal with a number of different issues related to pollution.  Try using combinations of words like pollution, air, water, quality, environment, etc.  For example:

  • Air Pollution
  • Water Quality Management
  • Groundwater

If your first search brings up too many irrelevant items, try using the Refine by Topic suggestions in the box on the left of the search results screen.

We also have a number of reference books on this issue.  Take a look through these books for background information or to look up possible topic ideas.
