Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Program In terms of water quality, what happens on the land is just as important as what happens in the water. Nonpoint source pollution, or polluted runoff, is thought to be the greatest threat to coastal waters, which is why Congress mandated shared responsibilities for this issue between land use decision.

Environmental Protection Agency.Pollution is a long-standing pressure on coastal rivers and estuaries, particularly in areas of urbanisation, industrialisation, mining and agriculture. There remains a legacy of pollution associated with early European history in Australia (Wolanski ), and both legacy chemical contamination and contemporary inputs to poorly flushed systems are among the most significant.Many of the pollutants discharged into the sea are directly or indirectly the result of human activities.
