Water pollution is the contamination of waterbodies (for example streams, rivers, lakes and bays) often caused by human actions.

Point Source Pollution is contamination that can be traced to a specific source such as a wastewater pipe or an industry. There are laws that regulate this type of contamination.

Nonpoint Source Pollution happens when contamination on the landscape is carried to waterbodies by rain or irrigation water. It is hard to control NPS with laws. It is up to citizens and landowners to make good decisions!
