The Clean Water Act designated 21 threats.

In order to help you navigate the resources we have, we’ve divided the resources into four “threat” categories (Municipal – Residential – Agriculture – Industrial/Commercial).

Municipal threats are those activities that tend to be undertaken by municipalities in the course of their business serving their residents. Municipal-related threats include:

  • the storage and application of road salt
  • the storage of salt and snow
  • the operation of waste management sites such as landfills
  • the operation of a system that collects and treats sewage (sanitary sewers)
  • storage and handling of fuel
