Grades K-12. Nonpoint sources contribute a great deal to the pollution in our water bodies. The model tracks pollution from nonpoint sources, including: residential areas, forestry areas, transportation, recreation, agriculture, and construction, as well as from industry as a point source. Pollution and runoff are visually apparent when rain falling over the landscape top carries soil (cocoa), chemicals (colored drink mixes), and oil (cocoa and water mixture) through a watershed to a body of water. Best management practices include felt buffer strips as vegetation, clay to create berms, and other methods to show conservation and water pollution prevention measures. Discusses nonpoint source pollution and the steps everyone can take to help prevent it. Teaches the watershed concept in addition to point and nonpoint source pollution. Two waterways flow into a larger water body, which is representative of a lake, river, bay, or ocean. Unit comes complete with everything you need to demonstrate the movement of water through a watershed and the pollution that runoff may cause. Includes: nonpoint source landscape top (topographical map) with storm drain pipe, clear base, houses, barn, factory, drain pipe, treatment plant, trees, golf flags, cows, cars, and best management practices such as buffer strips, clay berms, manure container, soil, oils and chemicals (cocoa, drink mixes, and oil mix), bridges, water catcher, rainmaker, water plug, and user’s guide.
