    Most pollutants in water come from several different sources and are called Non-Point Source pollution. Water picks up these pollutants as it flows over the land and goes through untreated storm drains or directly into streams, wetlands, lakes and the ocean. Water also carries pollutants into underground drinking water as it flows into the ground.   Nonpoint source pollution (NPSP) from agricultural runoff threatens drinking water quality, aquatic habitats, and a variety of other beneficial uses of water resources. Agricultural runoff often contains a suite of water-quality contaminants, such as nutrients, pesticides, pathogens, sediment, salts, trace metals, and substances, contributing.

    Protecting water quality in urban areas (also referred to as the Blue Book) is a manual of stormwater best management practices. It was published in and has not undergone revision. Much of the information in this document is now outdated and we recommend it not be used for regulatory purposes. ISBN: OCLC Number: Description: xv, pages: illustrations ; 24 cm.

Runoff from urban and suburban areas is a major origin of nonpoint source pollution. Much of the urban environment is paved with asphalt or concrete, or covered with buildings. These surfaces are usually impervious, meaning that water runs off of them without being absorbed into the soil. These hard, impervious surfaces make it easier for stormwater to pick up, absorb, and carry pollutants.

pollution from urban areas is a major contributor to water quality degradation. Storm runoff and combined sewer over- flows are the most significant nonpoint sources in urban areas (Peirce, ).

Establishing the best control strategy for urban nonpoint source pollution includes initial assessment of the magnitude of the nonpoint source problem. Donigian, A.S., and Huber, W.C., ().

A distributed water quality model for nonpoint source pollution modeling in agricultural watersheds is described in this paper.

ABSTRACT: A geographic information system (GIS) was a useful aid in the assessment of urban nonpoint source pollution and the development of a pollution control strategy. The GIS was used for data integration and display, and to provide data for a nonpoint source model.

The water quality of discharge from the surface water system is ultimately dictated by land use and climate within the watershed.
