Chaubey has spent the last several years developing a best management practices tool that takes into consideration all feasible solutions for decreasing non-point source pollution, or pollution that gets into water through runoff.
The Clean Water State Revolving Fund program provides low interest loans for water quality protection projects for wastewater treatment, non-point source pollution control, and watershed and estuary management.
AOCs contain contaminated sediment, wastewater, and other non-point source pollution. In 1987, the United States and Canada identified 43 AOCs in the Great Lakes basin.
Non-Point Source Pollution Non-point source pollution is spread over a wide area (e.g., manure spreading on fields).
An even more difficult pollution problem to solve is that of non-point source pollution, which results from diffuse sources, such as farms, or is caused by atmospheric deposition from industrial polluters.
To prevent the introduction of these harmful substances into the marine environment, military installations use best management practices to control this non-point source pollution. The DoD also minimizes sedimentation through erosion control measures and restorative projects when appropriate, all of which is detailed in our installation Integrated Natural Resources Management Plans.
Since the CWSRF was created by Congress in 1987, it has provided low-interest loans targeting a wide range of projects in wastewater treatment, non-point source pollution control, estuary management, and other projects focusing on water quality.
The Tanyard branch is listed as an impaired stream under Section 303D of the Clean Water Act because of non-point source pollution from stormwater runoff.
Each team is addressing one priority issue: habitat and species, indicators and information, areas of concern, reduction of persistent bioaccumulative toxics, invasive species, sustainable development, coastal health, and non-point source pollution. These priority issues were endorsed by the Council of Great Lakes Governors (CGLG), a partnership formed to facilitate environmentally responsible economic growth.
"This water is potentially vulnerable to non-point source pollution caused by poor forestry practices, and over 75 percent of the watershed is forested," said Douglas Leite, Project Manager of the Corps' New York District.
Nutrient loads associated with non-point source pollution paths are related to land type within the drainage catchments of sample sites.
Also, and more importantly, we must tighten controls on non-point source pollution.
