In this multi-part activity learners examine non-point water pollution. Learners discover ways they may be contributing to this type of pollution and brainstorm ways to change their behavior to be more environmentally responsible. Designed as a family exploration, the activity includes watching two short educational films about the Hudson River, discussing hypothetical pollution scenarios, auditing your own stock of pollutants under the bathroom sink, brainstorming alternative products, and sharing your results. The activity could easily be adapted to non-family educational groups and could be done in one chunk, or over the course of several sessions. (less)

Issues in Ecology, Issue 03: Non Point Pollution of Surface Waters

This report addresses pollution of aquatic ecosystems that originate from multiple unidentified ... (more)

This report addresses pollution of aquatic ecosystems that originate from multiple unidentified sources or non point sources. Non point sources of phosphorus and nitrogen are of concern as they cause eutrophication or excessive enrichment of surface waters. Effects and remediation strategies are discussed. Non point sources, such as agricultural, urban and atmospheric ones are discussed. Management techniques to reduce excess nutrient transport across landscapes and into bodies of water are explained. The report discusses the need to establish controversial Thresholds of unacceptable soil contamination. Issues in Ecology is an ongoing series of reports designed to present major ecological issues in an easy-to-read manner. This Issue summarizes the consensus of a panel of scientific experts based on the information that was current and available at the time of its publication in 1998. (less)

In this lesson, students will explore the causes of water pollution and its effects on the environment through the use of models and scientific investigation. In the accompanying activities, they will investigate filtration and aeration processes as they are used for removing pollutants from water. Lastly, they will learn about the role of engineers in water treatment systems. (less)
