Water resources protection at the local level is becoming more complicated, largely due to non-point source (NPS) pollution. NPS pollution control requires identification of pollutant sources within a watershed and assessment of the hydrologic transport system (runoff) from the source to the water resource of concern. The amount of polluted runoff depends on many factors, including watershed land use, rainfall, and antecedent moisture conditions of the soil.
