    • Non-point source pollution
      • As water from rainfall and snowmelt flows over and through the landscape, it picks up and carries contaminants from many different sources.
      • This is called Non-Point Source Pollution .
      • This polluted water ends up in streams, lakes and the ocean by flowing directly in or by going, untreated, through storm drains.
      • Water also carries pollutants into underground drinking water as it soaks into the ground.
      • Fertilizers, weed killer, insecticides, fungicides
      • Pet droppings; poorly maintained septic systems
      • Detergents from washing your car, common household cleaners, improper disposal of paint, oil and other chemicals.
