A state of knowledge overview of identified pathways of diffuse pollutants to the water environment has been published by CREW (Centre of Expertise for Waters).

Diffuse pollution from agriculture is a significant environmental issue and has implications for Scotland achieving the targets set out in River Basin Management Plans for water bodies to achieve good status. 

This review sets out the current state of knowledge on diffuse pollution pathways and provides information on how they could be addressed. It also highlights gaps in knowledge which could help develop further solutions to reduce diffuse pollution.
