Most of the pollutants going into waterways now come from stormwater. Anything that goes down an outdoor drain is destined to end up in the local waterway. These pollutants affect the environment and humans.

In this module, students will:        

  • investigate the types and causes of urban stormwater pollution
  • learn how human activities can result in water pollution
  • predict what pollutes water bodies
  • identify & dramatise ways to stop water pollution
