There are two different types of laws that help control urban runoff: one focusing on urban point sources and the other focusing on urban nonpoint sources. Urban point source pollution is addressed by the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System permit program of the Clean Water Act, which regulates stormwater discharges. Urban nonpoint source pollution is covered by nonpoint source management programs developed by states, territories, and tribes under the Clean Water Act. In states and territories with coastal zones, programs to protect coastal waters from nonpoint source pollution also are required by section 6217 of the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments.
