Nonpoint Source Workgroup

NEIWPCC facilitates an Nonpoint Souce (NPS) Workgroup of NPS program managers from the New England states, New York State, and the EPA.

The workgroup meets three to four times a year and helps all parties involved stay abreast of developments in program policies and funding regarding their efforts to target and manage different nonpoint sources track NPS load reductions.

Federal funding of NPS projects is supported by Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, and each year, EPA issues a new version of its “319 Guidance,” which outlines what types of projects are eligible to receive funding.
