Wastewater, discharge of drilling wastes; discharge from metal refineries; and erosion of natural deposits
Blood pressure and gastrointestinal problems, muscle weakness, and damage to the nervous and circulatory systems
Water rich in decaying organic material such as plants and waste is also typically rich with sulfate. In anaerobic environments, sulfate-reducing bacteria aid in the degradation of the organic matter by extracting energy from organic molecules. During this process, the sulfate is reduced to hydrogen sulfide, which remains in the water. Don’t live with foul…
