Water Pollution in Streams, Rivers, or Other Water Bodies

Pollution from a variety of sources can contaminate creeks and streams, causing discoloration, odors, or other conditions that are unnatural. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) investigates these problems to determine if they pose a hazard to human health or the environment.
