Protect Your Water
Learn how water quality is influenced and what you can do to protect your water.
Two types of water pollution - point source and nonpoint source. 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.
