"Rainfall, snowmelt, or irrigation runoff moves across the land... [It] picks up... residues from the production of food, the manicuring of yards, the construction of roads and buildings... and transports these contaminants to the nearest stream, lake, estuary or aquifer," National Geographic reports. Our water sources are getting more and more polluted, and salvation lies in the hands of the average citizen not corporate polluters.
