Dog River Watershed drains about 90 square miles of Mobile City and Mobile County. Seventy percent of the watershed is the city of Mobile and thirty percent of the watershed is Mobile County. The largest form
of pollution in the watershed is non-point source pollution which includes litter and sediment caught in stormwater runoff. Stormwater runoff is when it rains and any water not absorbed by the atmosphere, soil, trees, and grasses, runs into nearby storm drains and water bodies. Sediment, from stormwater runoff, is the leading source of pollution in Dog River and in the United States.
