Abstract: Nowadays, the environmental impact of the water usage is estimated based on the amount of water consumed, but it does not consider the quality of the water. Although, there are different methods to quantify the water footprint, the amount of water consumed, there is not a method which can determinate the water quality impact evaluation. The aim of this project is the validation of a novel index that measures the environmental impact of water degradation. This index explains, not only the quantity of water but the impact of human or natural pollution No other articles or projects evaluate the ecological impact by using the eco-gamma equation, and especially focusing on water degradation. Real examples have been searched, to give the evaluation a realistic condition, and evaluate different scenarios in different conditions. Also trying to implement the use of this equation for other uses, how can it be the simulation of the impact of an industrial activity in a certain environment. From energy and mass balances, and this easy eco-gamma equation which evaluates how different parameters affect the growing rate of different species, it is possible to evaluate the impact different activities make to an environment.
