Previous investigators have indicated that air quality may contribute to surface water pollution through rainfall or dry fallout, or both, even to the extent that pollutants travel via the air from industrial and agricultural regions may be deposited in undeveloped areas. Data collected from a heavily developed area in Houston and a forested area 40 miles north were used to estimate the contribution of rainwater quality to stream pollution.
