Nonpoint Source Pollution
Pollution that occurs when rainfall, snowmelt, or irrigation runs over land or through the ground, picks up pollutants, and deposits them into rivers, lakes, and streams or introduces them into ground water is Nonpoint Source Pollution.
Nonpoint source pollution comes in many forms. Major land disturbances, poor agricultural practices, mismanaged forestry practices, over-grazing, poorly maintained septic systems, construction runoff, physical changes to stream systems, habitat degradation, and uninformed household management are all examples of potential nonpoint source pollution problems.
Stream Teams working together as Associations can help reduce nonpoint source pollutants from entering their adopted streams.
