Aquatic habitats are water bodies supporting aquatic life. Increased temperatures of effluents, greater discharges of water, pollutants and waste, and changes in water bodies morphology impact all the basic habitats characteristics.
Ecohydrology for Urban Aquatic Habitats
A balanced approach addressing the pressing issues in urban environment is not common in the water service sector
