These pollutants can include chemicals from fertilizers, pesticides, and household hazardous waste, as well as litter and debris. When these pollutants enter our waterways, they can cause a range of problems, including:

  • Contamination of drinking water sources

  • Harm to aquatic life and wildlife

  • Decreased recreational value of waterways

  • Damage to ecosystems and habitats
