The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is seeking input on 6 questions about nonpoint source (NPS) water pollution in Alaska. The responses to these questions will help guide DEC’s priority focus over the next 5 years for addressing nonpoint source pollution.
 
What is nonpoint source water pollution?
The leading causes of pollution in Alaska, and in the United States overall, come from nonpoint sources. Unlike pollution from point sources, such as industrial and sewage treatment plants, nonpoint source pollution comes from many sources. It is caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground and picking up natural and human-made pollutants, such as fertilizer, road salt, sediment, oil and petroleum products, toxic metals, and bacteria, along the way. Eventually these contaminants end up in waterbodies like lakes and streams.
