Runoff from yards, streets, parking lots, farm fields and construction sites is the leading source of water pollution in Virginia. This runoff is called nonpoint source pollution because its sources are diffuse, and that's why everyone must work to stop it. DCR helps by teaching citizens lawn care techniques that keep pollution from reaching nearby streams and faraway waterways, such as the Chesapeake Bay.
