The Clean Water Act designated 21 threats.

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

Residential threats are those threats that tend to exist in residential homes. Residential-related threats include:

  • storage and handling of fuels and other chemicals
  • a poorly maintained septic system
  • wells that have been improperly abandoned
  • home heating oil
  • fertilizer application
