Nonpoint Source Workgroup

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

The workgroup meets two to three 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.

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.
