Two non-point source pollutants are sediments from improperly managed construction sites and farming near the lakes and streams in the Hiwassee River basin. Two point source pollutants are discharges from sewage plants along the Valley River which is located in the Hiwassee River basin and dis-charges from landfill plants along streams in the Hiwassee River basin.
One way to prevent pollution from farming is by only applying certain amounts of fertilizers and chemicals to the crops in the right seasons.
One way to prevent pollution from landfills and sewage plants is to move them away from the streams and lakes so that they don't spill and leak into the lakes and rivers, at least that is a start to reducing pollution.
