Educational Materials: Sediment
Sediment is a major source of pollution for local waters, and most sediment comes from the accelerated erosion caused by our land use practices.
DID YOU KNOW? Sediment can carry other pollutants with it, as it is transported by stormwater into local water bodies. Those pollutants include nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, as well as toxic chemicals.
