Human activities contribute immensely to the production of wastewater which emanates from residences, industries and agricultural practices that pollutes the environment and water bodies. Up to 80-90% of the wastewater produced in developing countries is disposed of into surface and groundwater which is a major cause of environmental pollution that threatens human health. According to UN report, over 80% of the wastewater produced in the world and over 95% in some least developed countries is released without being treated into the environment. This paper reviews the methods of sewage disposal, the impact on the environment, aquatic contaminant and the human health. Emphasis is placed on the impact of disposal of various contaminants in aquifers and water bodies which could make water unsafe for drinking and to perform other domestic and recreational activities
