studies document the improvements in water-quality brought about by years of investment in point-source controls. However, the Tennessee studies also indicate that investment in such controls and the corresponding improvement in water-quality can reach a point of diminishing returns. Further improvements in water-quality, in these situations, can only be achieved when the remaining issues, such as nonpoint-source pollution, are understood and addressed.
