Nonpoint Source Pollution Control and Education

Unlike pollution that is directly discharged from permitted sewage treatment plants and other industrial sources, nonpoint source pollution typically includes runoff that can carry contaminants and other deposits over large areas following an event of precipitation.

While watershed-based plans focus on mitigating the effects of nonpoint source pollution, Greater Egypt is also committed to reducing nonpoint source pollution in our urbanized area through educational materials and outreach.

Beginning in May 2018, Greater Egypt will begin implementing these materials. Education and outreach includes stormwater management brochures, workshops, and a web page where the public and municipalities can post examples of how they are reducing nonpoint source pollution in the urbanized area.
