Nonpoint Source Resources

Nonpoint source pollution includes sediment, litter, bacteria, nutrients, metals, oils, grease, and chemicals that enter lakes and streams. Nonpoint source pollution may be carried by stormwater runoff, precipitation, atmospheric deposition, drainage, and/or seepage. Stormwater itself may also damage a stream’s hydrology, flow rate, temperature, and other physical and biological characteristics.

The resources below are designed to be an informative clearinghouse of technical and non-technical documents for all stakeholders across the State involved in the prevention, control and abatement of nonpoint sources of pollution.
