RUNOFF/ RUN-OFF ( WATER)


Explanation:
Tienes esas posibilidades de grafía y "water" es opcional.

Mira la definición del Glosario US-EPA:

Run-Off: That part of precipitation, snow melt, or irrigation water that runs off the land into streams or other surface-water. It can carry pollutants from the air and land into receiving waters.

Si tienes más contexto, puedes agregarle "apellidos". Por ejemplo, escorrentía urbana (urban run-off), escorrentía subterránea (underground run-off), escorrentía de aguacero (storm run-off), escorrentía natural (natural run-off), etc....

Suerte y saludos, María Alejandra
