Nonpoint Source Program
- Nonpoint Source Program
Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution is caused when rain, snowmelt, or wind carry pollutants off the land and into lakes, streams or wetlands. Also, large quantities of runoff can impact water quality and aquatic life when “flashy flows” cause excessive stream bank erosion. Michigan's NPS Program helps local stakeholders restore waters impaired by NPS pollution or causes and protect high quality waters from NPS threats.
NPS Staff located in Lansing and in District Offices are available to help you eliminate NPS pollution.
