The level pollution in our environment in the last twenty years has been a source of concern which needs a serious and tactical approach, if not our environmental health status will be in jeopardy. These media were; Air, land, water and noise. The pollutant when injected into the biosphere in greater quantities affected the functioning of ecosystem and exercised adverse effects on plants, animals and humans. Here, information where sourced from internet journals and available text. Then conclusion, recommendation and control were made. Thus, it is recommended that international standard be established for contents of potentially toxic elements in industrial effluent. Also hazards associated with environmental pollution can be controlled by having information about the concentration of pollutant and measurement of biological oxygen demand. (B.O.D). In short, management practice must be taken into consideration with sound ecological principle and man must have greater understanding and appreciation of these principles.
