Water Pollution

Water pollution includes the accumulation in oceans, lakes, streams, and groundwater of substances that are either directly harmful to life or that have harmful secondary or long-term effects. The principal sources of water pollution are sewage, industrial waste, garbage and refuse, and agricultural fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. Any body of water has the capacity to absorb or break down introduced materials, and sewage and some organic industrial wastes are broken down naturally by microorganisms into forms in which they are useful to aquatic life. But if the capacity of a body of water to dissolve, disperse, or recycle is exceeded, all additional substances become pollutants. The major sources of water pollution are untreated sewage from cities and towns, chemical fertilizers and pesticides that have run off farmland into rivers and streams, and chemicals from industrial plants located along waterways.

The domestic waste water in sewage systems can be artificially treated and purified to remove its pollutants before the water is discharged back into the environment in a process called water treatment. Industrial waste water can likewise be purified, or else production methods at the plant can be changed to minimize the production of wastes or recycle them for further industrial use. Agricultural wastes are generally less concentrated and take longer to produce aggravating effects than industrial and municipal sewage wastes originating in or near cities.

What is Nonpoint Source (NPS) Pollution?
Questions and Answers

(taken from EPA's Polluted brochure EPA-841-F-94-005, 1994)
Website: http://www.epa.gov

Q: What is nonpoint source pollution?

A: Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution, unlike pollution from industrial and sewage treatment plants, comes from many diffuse sources. NPS pollution is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground. As the runoff moves, it picks up and carries away natural and human-made pollutants, finally depositing them into lakes, rivers, wetlands, coastal waters, and even our underground sources of drinking water. These pollutants include:

  • Excess fertilizers, herbicides, and insecticides from agricultural lands and residential areas;

  • Oil, grease, and toxic chemicals from urban runoff and energy production;

  • Sediment from improperly managed construction sites, crop and forest lands, and eroding streambanks;

  • Salt from irrigation practices and acid drainage from abandoned mines;

  • Bacteria and nutrients from livestock, pet wastes, and faulty septicsystems;

Atmospheric deposition and hydromodification are also sources of nonpoint source pollution.


Q: What are the effects of these pollutants on our waters?

A: States report that nonpoint source pollution is the leading remaining cause of water quality problems. The effects of nonpoint source pollutants on specific waters vary and may not always be fully assessed. However, we know that these pollutants have harmful effects on drinking water supplies, recreation, fisheries, and wildlife.

Q: What causes nonpoint source pollution?

A: We all play a part. Nonpoint source pollution results from a wide variety of human activities on the land. Each of us can contribute to the problem without even realizing it.

Q: What can we do about nonpoint source pollution?

A: We can all work together to reduce and prevent nonpoint source pollution. Some activities are federal responsibilities, such as ensuring that federal lands are properly managed to reduce soil erosion. Some are state responsibilities, for example, developing legislation to govern mining and logging, and to protect groundwater. Others are best handled locally, such as by zoning or erosion control ordinances. And each individual can play an important role by practicing conservation and by changing certain everyday habits.
