Urban nonpoint source pollution can be viewed from physiochemical, source, and impact perspectives. These and its dependence upon runoff pose important problems for pollution control management, including allocation of pollution control monies between point and nonpoint source pollution, identification of the true pollution problem, definition of monitoring strategies, adequate attention to pollutant load variability, and coordination of pollution control activities across political boundaries.
