Nonpoint Source Pollution

  • Nonpoint Source Program Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution is pollution caused when rain, snowmelt, or wind carry pollutants off the land and into lakes, streams, wetlands, and other water bodies. Michigan's Nonpoint Source Program assists local units of government, non-profit entities, and numerous other state, federal, and local partners to reduce nonpoint source pollution statewide. The basis of our program is watershed management and our program works with stakeholders to develop and implement plans to protect the watersheds of the state. We look forward to working with you to protect and improve Michigan's water resources.
