This is a difficult question to answer because watershed pollution tends to come from nonpoint sources. A watershed encompasses all bodies of water in a localized area, so it’s essentially a network of water channels. Another term for it would be a drainage basin. The “drainage” starts when rain or melting snow drain downhill into rivers and other bodies of water. Tracking pollution in this cycle is tough because chemicals can easily enter the cycle without us ever knowing exactly where they came from. For instance, acid rain can end up in our water sources, and it occurs as an indirect result of air pollution. The best way to protect our watersheds is to be mindful of what we are putting into the environment because all natural processes are cyclical, including the water cycle.
