What is inorganic pollution?
Inorganic chemical pollutants are naturally found in the environment but due to human development these pollutants are often concentrated and released into the environment in urban stormwater. The primary inorganic pollutants of concern in urban stormwater are cadmium, copper, lead, zinc, nitrogen, nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, phosphorous, and phosphate. These chemicals are used in every aspect of human activity and are often highly toxic to humans and the environment. This Species Selection Tool categories the inorganic pollutants of primary concern in urban stormwater into two categories: heavy metals and nutrients. The below chemical structures highlight just a few of the inorganic pollutants potentially found in urban stormwater that have potential to be removed using phytoremediation in constructed wetlands.

Effects of fertilizers on water quality?
Properly fertilized land causes no water issues at all and provides several times more food then if fertilizers were not used. Without fertilizers the planet could not sustain anywhere near the volume of humans we currently have. Over fertilization with some forms of fertilizers can cause water contamination. Some fertilizers are natural and run off from them is not an issue.

What are some damages fertilizers can cause?
The damages that fertilizers do mostly has to do with the land surrounding the area where fertilizers are used. For instance, in California there is a place called Lake Tahoe. This lake is so cold due to climate and elevation that the water is crystal clear, even at the deepest depths of the lake. However, homeowners nearby have been using fertilizers on their lawns which, during rainy seasons and when the lawns are watered, eventually end up in the lake. Fertilizers provide nutrients for plant life where there normally isn't, which allows algae to grow in Lake Tahoe, which can be bad for the environment, not to mention the water turning green. As for humans, fertilizers have been known to damage the human brain, especially when young children are exposed to them.
