Most stormwater runoff flows either directly into streams, rivers, ponds, lakes and wetlands, or down the nearest stormdrain into the nearest waterway without any treatment. This can be a problem because stormwater washes pollutants off roads, lawns and other surfaces and carries them into the nearest body of water. These pollutants (oil, grease, pesticides, bacteria, heavy metals, road salts, etc) can harm fish and wildlife populations, kill native vegetation, foul drinking water supplies, and make recreational areas unsafe and unpleasant.
One of the biggest places where runoffs end up are at the mouth of the Mississippi River in the Gulf of Mexico. This dead zone extends from the border of Mississippi and Louisiana to the border of Louisiana and Texas
