Description
 
Pollution from nonpoint sources such as runoff from farms or construction sites remains the leading cause of impairment to the nations waters. Under section 319 of the Clean Water Act, each year the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides grants to states to implement programs and fund projects that address nonpoint source pollution; the program received $165 million in FY 2012. Section 319 includes minimum conditions that states must meet to receive grants. By regulation, EPAs 10 regional offices oversee state programs and are to ensure that states projects can be feasibly implemented. The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) also has programs to protect water resources. This report examined (1) states experiences in funding projects that address nonpoint source pollution; (2) the extent to which EPA oversees the section 319 program and measures its effectiveness; and (3) the extent to which key agricultural programs complement EPA efforts to control such pollution. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
