For instance, water is almost always appropriated (allocated) during the process of development, and if developers also regulate the resource, there is an inevitable tendency to overdevelop.

The wastes, broadly categorized as heavy metals, gases and synthetic organic compounds, reach bodies of water as direct discharges by leaching from waste dumps and, in some cases, through the atmosphere. In developed countries, many industrial discharges are now strictly controlled. But in these countries, pollution of water bodies continues from industrial wastes discharged over the past century or longer. In addition, clean-up operations through regulation and interprovincial or international agreements can be difficult to achieve.
