Environmental engineering is the study to improve the natural environment to provide healthy water, air and land for habitation and to remediate pollution sites. Environmental engineering is concerned with finding plausible solutions in the field of public health, arthropod-borne diseases and implementing law to promote adequate sanitation in urban, rural and recreational areas. It involves waste water management and air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, environmental sustainability and public health issues.
Environmental engineers study the effects of technological advances on the environment. They conduct hazardous-waste management studies to evaluate the significance of such hazardous-waste management studies to evaluate the significance of such hazards, advice on treatment and containment and develop regulations to prevent mishaps.
Environmental engineering emerged as a separate discipline during the middle of the 20th century in response to widespread public concern about water and pollution and increasingly extensive environmental quality degradation. The roots of this extend back to public health engineering. Acions are intended to achieve benefits for those societies with longer-term impacts to reduce other environmental qualities.
