Across North America, point sources of pollution are being brought under control through a combination of legislation and economic incentives; however, non-point source (NPS) pollution, which includes such releases as storm water discharges, fertilizers and pesticides, has not been as actively managed and continues to contribute significantly towards aquatic pollution in both urban and rural areas. The Water Quality Branch of the Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks contracted KPMG to review the issues and options for NPS pollution management in British Columbia.
