      This guidance from was written to help state, regional and local environmental professionals track the implementation of best management practices (BMPs) used to control agricultural nonpoint source pollution. Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Program In terms of water quality, what happens on the land is just as important as what happens in the water. Nonpoint source pollution, or polluted runoff, is thought to be the greatest threat to coastal waters, which is why Congress mandated shared responsibilities for this issue between land use decision.

All projects must consist of activities that will reduce, abate, control, or prevent nonpoint source pollution originating from agricultural Size: KB. In December , the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB), in its continuing efforts to control nonpoint source (NPS) pollution in California, adopted the Plan for California’s Nonpoint Source Pollution Control Program (NPS Program Plan) (SWRCB, ). The NPS Program Plan upgraded the State’s first Nonpoint Source Management Plan.

The heart of this instructional exercise is a case study. Either the Montana study or one for the local area may be used. Nonpoint Source Pollution (NPS) Control Program. Nonpoint Source (NPS) pollution does not originate from regulated point sources and comes from many diffuse sources. NPS pollution occurs when rainfall flows off the land, roads, buildings, and other features of the landscape.

Definition of a Nonpoint Source Nonpoint sources of water pollution are both diffuse in nature and difficult to define. Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution can generally be defined as the pollution of waters caused by rainfall or snowmelt moving over and through the ground.

As water moves over or through soil, it picks up and carries away. While research, monitoring, and assessment look at the larger environmental effects of nonpoint source pollution, taking measures to stop pollution before it begins is also essential for controlling the problem.

This is especially true in coastal communities where. Nonpoint Source (NPS) Pollution Management Many activities associated with various land uses within Connecticut have the potential to contribute pollution to ground and surface water resources.

Water pollution that is not concentrated within a drainage system, or discharged from a point, such as a pipe, is called nonpoint source pollution.
