Deicing salts on highways

Non-point source pollution occurs when contaminants are introduced to the environment over a large, widespread area and do not originate from a single centralized source. Deicing salts on highways is the only answer that fits this definition. Point source pollution is defined as contaminants that originate from a single, centralized location, such as a factory smokestack, wastewater plant or sewage pipe.####
