Watershed/Nonpoint Source is the first in the EnviroScape series. We all live in a watershed with water pollution comes from many sources. Nonpoint sources contribute a great deal to the pollution in our water bodies. The combined affect of pollution from many small sources can have a real impact on the quality of our shared water resources.
EnviroScape® Watershed/Nonpoint Source tracks pollution from point and nonpoint sources, including
The Watershed/Nonpoint Source unit 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, watercatcher, rainmaker, water plug, and User's Guide.
Stormwater 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. Stormwater runoff and storm drain function are also addressed.
Best management practices include felt buffer strips as vegetation, clay to create berms and other methods to show conservation and water pollution prevention measures at work. The model shows nonpoint source pollution and the steps everyone can take to help prevent environmental contamination.
EnviroScape Watershed/Nonpoint Source also teaches an overall watershed concept. Two waterways flow into a larger water body, which is representative of a lake, river, bay, or ocean. The unit comes complete with a kit containing everything you need to demonstrate the movement of water through a watershed and the pollution that runoff may cause.
