Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution is pollution resulting from many diffuse sources, in direct contrast to point source pollution which results from a single source. Nonpoint source pollution generally results from land runoff, precipitation, atmospheric deposition, drainage, seepage, or hydrological modification (rainfall and snowmelt) where tracing pollution back to a single source is difficult.

Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies, usually as a result of human bodies include for example lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and pollution results when contaminants are introduced into the natural environment. For example, releasing inadequately treated wastewater into natural water bodies can lead to degradation of aquatic ecosystems.

Nonpoint–Source PollutionIntroductionNonpoint-source pollution is pollution that enters a waterway from diverse sources.
