This overview chapter describes and connects the three main ingredients of stormwater, the water cycle, pollution, and impervious surfaces. Underlying these ingredients is the rapid increase in human population that has affected all three. The chapter then outlines how these ingredients together have led to a number of problems that harm streams and lakes.

Keywords:   human population, fertilizer, imperviousness, impaired streams and lakes
