Non-Point Source Pollution

Science / Geology / Non-Point Source Pollution: Pollution that does not originate at a single location. In an urban area runoff water can be polluted as it flows to a stream by gasoline, antifreeze, road salt or other contaminants. In rural areas r MORE


Business / Agriculture / Eutrophication: The process by which a body of water acquires a high concentration of plant nutrients, especially nitrates or phosphates. This nutrification promotes algae growth that, when it dies, can lead to the d MORE
