    Historical Perspective Federal Laws and Regulations Congress passed the federal Water Pollution Control Act which, with subsequent amendments, is commonly referred to as the Clean Water Act (CWA), in (P.L. ). The preamble to the CWA states that the goal of the Act is to ensure that the nation’s waters are “fishable and swimmable.”. North Coast RWQCB March Introduction The purpose of a TMDL pollutant source analysis is to inventory and describe all sources of pollutants that are impacting the water quality standards of the impaired waterbody. In Both point and nonpoint sources of pollution contribute to the water quality impairments.

Baltimore City was issued a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit (MD) on January 3, This permit lasts for 5 years and requires the City to prohibit non-stormwater discharges and reduce stormwater pollutants through its storm sewer system to the maximum extent practicable.

The theory of pollution control as it is presented in basic textbooks is fundamentally a theory of point source sources discharge pollutants directly into environmental media (e.g., air or water) from discrete.

1 Overview of the Nonpoint Source Problem. By S.A. Dressing, D.W. Meals, J.B. Harcum, and J. Spooner. Definition of a Nonpoint Source.

Nonpoint sources of water pollution are both diffuse in nature and difficult to define. Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution can generally be defined as the pollution of waters caused by rainfall or snowmelt. To control point source discharges, the Clean Water Act established the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).

Under the NPDES program, factories, sewage treatment plants, and other point sources must obtain a permit from the state and EPA before they can discharge their waste or effluents into any body of water.

However, many of these discharges have been cleaned up or eliminated due to legislation such as the Clean Water Act of as well as many state and local File Size: KB.

PollutIoN SouRceS Pollution is often described as point source or diffuse (or non-point) pollution. Point source pollution enters a water body at a specific site and is generally readily identified.

Potential point sources of pollution include effluent discharges from sewage treatment works and industrial sites,File Size: KB. The main threats that face lagoons and estuaries are the point and nonpoint source pollution [16].

However, the dependence of water quality and. Other articles where Point-source pollutant is discussed: water pollution: Sources of pollution: Water pollutants come from either point sources or dispersed sources.

A point source is a pipe or channel, such as those used for discharge from an industrial facility or a city sewerage system. A dispersed (or nonpoint) source is a very broad, unconfined area from which a variety of pollutants.

The allocations of pollutant loadings to point sources are called wasteload allocations. Effluent limits in NPDES permits must be consistent with the assumptions used to derive the wasteload allocations.

A "point source" is defined as "any discernible confined and discrete conveyance including but not limited to a pipe, ditch, channel, or conduit from which pollutants are or may be discharged.

Introduction. Agricultural non-point-source pollution (ANPSP) poses a severe threat to water quality and aquatic ecosystems in China (Shen et al., ).Usually, ANPSP can be categorized into three types according to the pollution sources, e.g., runoff from cropland, wastewater (including urine and flushing water) and manure from livestock operations, and aquaculture Cited by: 3.
