  2. Pollutants Found in Runoff Sediment Soil particles transported fromLeaves their source Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) . Oxygen depleting material Organic material Toxics Nutrients . Various types of materials that become dissolved and suspended in water (commonly found in fertilizer and plant material) . Pesticides > Herbicides Fungicides Insecticides - Metals (naturally occurring in soil, automotive emissions/ tires) Nitrogen (N) Phosphorus (P) Lead Zinc Bacterial Pathogens Originating from: Thermal Stress Mercury Petroleum Hydrocarbons (automotive exhaust and fuel/oil) e Pets e Waterfowl . Failing septic systems vegetation Heated runoff removal of streamside Debris Litter and illegal dumping

  3. Pollutants from Agriculture Sediment Nutrients Pathogens Pesticides

  4. Why are these pollutants important? Sediment reduces light penetration in stream, clogs gills of fish and aquatic invertebrates. Nutrients act as fertilizer for algae & aquatic plants which can cause highly varying dissolved oxygen levels. At low DO levels, the aquatic life has the potential to be harmed Toxics can impact life and contaminate drinking water supplies. Bacteria/Pathogens are an indicator of possible viruses present in the system.
