The quality of surface water can be affected by several factors, including land use, agricultural practices, urbanization, and industrialization. Agricultural practices can lead to the use of pesticides and fertilizers, which can contaminate surface water through runoff. Urbanization and industrialization can also lead to the discharge of pollutants into surface water bodies. The quality of surface water can also be influenced by natural factors such as rainfall, temperature, and weather events such as floods and droughts.
