Many activities in urban areas are a major source of environmental degradation. For example, chemical industries are producing new products which create new types of pollutants. At the same time, agricultural activities near urban areas are also charging storm waters with constant loads of sediments and organic nutrients. Galveston Bay is receiving much of the runoff generated from urban, and agricultural activities from many upland watersheds. The origins of these nonpoint pollutant sources are difficult to locate. This must be accomplished if the water quality of Galveston Bay is to be preserved.
