Major and minor point-source dischargers across the conterminous U.S.

Location of major point-source facilities

Detailed Description

Major (waste-water treatment facilities and some industrial facilities) and minor (waste-water treatment facilities) point-source dischargers are located across the United States. The Point-Source Load Estimation Tool (PSLoadEsT) is a user-friendly interface for point-source dischargers that generates reproducible calculations of nutrient loads to streams.
