Royal Commissions in the UK had their equivalents in other developed countries with the result that most developed countries today have in place effluent controls for sewage-based discharges. River uses One of the major corollaries of effluent control policies is that acceptance by society that rivers are suitable environments for getting rid of wastes. The fact that they flow downstream means that, unlike still freshwaters and, to a lesser extent, coastal waters, any pollutant entering them is washed away from its point of entry.
