This Nonpoint Sources Workgroup was formed to provide nonpoint dischargers with an organizational structure for developing collaborative Control Studies. Initial funding from a 319(h) planning grant is being applied to identify the potential management measures and potential study sites, support development of Control Study Workplans, and provide outreach and communications for the existing NPS Workgroup throughout the process.
