Eventually, straw to soak up the oil and detergents to disperse it helped remove the oil from the beaches, but the detergents were found to be the cleanup method more harmful to the coastal ecology. By far the most notorious recent incident has been the Exxon Valdez spill in Prince William Sound in Alaska. Oil in Alaska is produced in the Prudhoe Bay region in northern Alaska and piped down to the tanker terminal in Valdez on the southern coast. On 24 March 1989, the Exxon Valdez, a huge oil tanker loaded with crude oil, veered off course and hit a submerged reef, spilling about 11 million gallons of oil into Prince William Sound, devastating the fragile ecology.

Until recently, polluted drinking water was seen primarily as a threat to public health because of the transmission of bacterial waterborne disease. In less developed countries, and in almost any country in time of war, it still is. In the United States and other developed countries, however, water treatment and distribution methods have almost eradicated bacterial contamination. Most surface water pollution is harmful to aquatic organisms and causes possible public health problems (primarily from contact with the water).

85 LCF per 10 s persons. What risk is experienced by drinking water with an average EDB concentration of 5 pg/L for five years? The risk may be estimated using either unit annual risk or unit lifetime risk. 7) The answer is given to two significant figures because of the uncertainties in risk estimates. The estimated risk is that about three fatal cancers would be expected in a population of a billion people who drink water containing 5 pg/L EDB for five years. Although there is a popular tendency to translate this to an "individual risk" of "a chance of three in a billion having a fatal cancer," this statement of risk is less meaningful than the statement of population risk.
