This document, released on May 23, 2018, represents the first ever report that focuses on the Hypoxia Task Force (HTF) coordinated effort to account specifically for nonpoint source (NPS) changes, primarily agricultural, that influence nutrient loading from a variety of methods. This effort provides critical metrics for tracking and informing progress towards reducing NPS nutrient loading to the gulf that complements other historical aspects of tracking nutrient loading, including Mississippi River and tributary water quality monitoring and tracking point source metrics.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
