Protect Your Water
Two types of water pollution are point source and nonpoint source pollution. Point source pollution comes from a pipe or other conduit from specific discharges (i.e. industry or waste water treatment plant). Nonpoint source pollution comes from runoff over landscapes (i.e. urban areas, agriculture lands, forestry lands) and carries pollutants to waterbodies.
