Pollution

pollutedenvironmental pollutionpollution control
A point source of pollution is a single identifiable source of air, water, thermal, noise or light pollution.
Pollution is often classed as point source or nonpoint source pollution.

Nonpoint source pollution

nonpoint sourcenonpoint sourcesnon-point sources
A point source has negligible extent, distinguishing it from other pollution source geometries (such as nonpoint source or area source).
Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution is a term used to describe pollution resulting from many diffuse sources, in direct contrast to point source pollution which results from a single source.

Line source

linear sourcesnoisesound source
Air pollution from an industrial source (rather than an airport or a road, considered a line source, or a forest fire, which is considered an area source, or volume source)
While point sources of pollution were studied since the late nineteenth century, linear sources did not receive much attention from scientists until the late 1960s, when environmental regulations for highways and airports began to emerge.

Water pollution

A point source of pollution is a single identifiable source of air, water, thermal, noise or light pollution. Water pollution from factories, power plants, municipal sewage treatment plants and some farms (see concentrated animal feeding operation). The U.S. Clean Water Act also defines municipal separate storm sewer systems and industrial stormwater discharges (such as construction sites) as point sources.

Point (geometry)

The sources are called point sources because in mathematical modeling, they can be approximated as a mathematical point to simplify analysis.
