Polluted Runoff: Nonpoint Source (NPS) Pollution

Guidance Specifying Management Measures for Sources of Nonpoint Pollution in Coastal Waters

EPA 840-B-92-002 January 1993

This "management measures" guidance addresses nonpoint pollution in coastal waters. A suite of management measures is provided for each source category. In addition, we have included a chapter that provides management measures that provide other tools available to address many source categories of nonpoint pollution; these tools include the protection, restoration, and construction of wetlands, riparian areas, and vegetated treatment systems.
