Anything dumped or dropped on the ground or in the gutter can end up in the nearest body of water. Stormwater pollution results from materials and chemicals washed into the storm drains from streets, gutters, neighborhoods, industrial sites, parking lots and construction sites. This type of pollution is significant because, unlike the water that goes down a sink or toilet in your home, stormwater is untreated and flows directly to a lake, river, or the ocean.

Non-point source pollution is polluted runoff that results from rain or melting snow carrying pollutants from land to water. Non-point source pollution is the largest contributor to water degradation in the state. Non-point sources are not regulated in the same way as point sources, but state and federal programs exist to reduce the potential for runoff to contaminate rivers. Non-point source pollution results from land disturbance activities such as:
Studies published in the Journal of molecular neuroscience and also in the Experimental Eye Research journal have collectively served to reveal that a combination of everyday environmental factors such as ultraviolet light and air pollution can result in a process known as oxidative stress.The authors argue that sustained exposures to urban air pollution result in cognitive underperformance and metabolic brain changes that could lead to an acceleration of neurodegenerative changes.Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution results when small amounts of contaminants from a large number of sources are carried by rainfall runoff into streams, lakes, or bays. For example, pollutants may be washed off lawns, construction areas, farms, or highways during a heavy rain and carried to a nearby creek.
