The physical, chemical and diversity characteristics of streams and rivers are influenced by the land use in their basins. A large number of pollutants reach watercourses by superficial and sub-superficial drainage or direct disposal. Plastics currently make up the most important waste asset, representing an important part of the transported material as well as accumulated in water courses.
