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
