This study examined the Influence of Runoff on Landscape features in tropical Area, Enugu-Anambra state, Southeast, Nigeria. The specific objectives are to; Examine the effect of Runoff water Pollution on landscape and determined the extent of runoff change on landscape. Data were drawn from primary and secondary sources. The secondary data involve the use of information already in existence and these were sourced largely through literature review. Primary data used was acquired through field survey, and case study method. The result revealed that Runoff water Pollution has significant effect on the landscape. and it also affect the water quality. Also, runoff erosion action has significant effect on the landscape. It has caused real change on the shape of the landscape because we lack regular maintenance of roads to keep drains and culvert clean in order to prevent flooding in the system. Based on the result, we can conclude that Runoff water Pollution and erosion action has strong negative effect on landscape. We therefore, recommend that, an effective control system should be put in place in other to direct runoff channels from critical areas to areas with little or no risk. There should be regular maintenance of roads to keep drains and culvert clean so as to prevent runoff changing the landscape and also installing diversion at drains and culverts where runoff velocity can cause erosion.
