Building from the CZARA section 6217(g) guidance, EPA developed a series of national management measures to control Nonpoint Source Pollution across a number of topics


National Management Measures to Control Nonpoint Source Pollution from Agriculture

National Management Measures to Control Nonpoint Source Pollution from Agriculture is a technical guidance and reference document for use by State, local, and tribal managers in the implementation of nonpoint source pollution management programs. It contains information on the best available, economically achievable means of reducing pollution of surface and ground water from agriculture (Final Version - July 2003).

National Management Measures to Control Nonpoint Source Pollution from Forestry

This report helps forest owners protect lakes and streams from polluted runoff that can result from forestry activities. These scientifically sound techniques are the best practices known today. The report will also help states to implement their nonpoint source control programs. Note: The guidance is national in scope, so it does not address local or regional soils, climates, or forest types.

National Management Measures to Control Nonpoint Source Pollution from Hydromodification

The primary goal of this guidance document is to provide technical assistance to states, territories, tribes, and the public for managing hydromodification activities and reducing associated NPS pollution of surface and ground water. The document describes examples of the implementation of practices that can be used to reduce NPS pollution from activities associated with channelization and channel modification, dams, and streambank and shoreline erosion

National Management Measures to Control Nonpoint Source Pollution from Marinas and Recreational Boating

National Management Measures to Control Nonpoint Source Pollution from Marinas and Recreational Boating is a technical guidance and reference document for use by State, local, and tribal managers in the implementation of nonpoint source pollution management programs. It contains information on the best available, economically achievable means of reducing pollution of surface water runoff from marinas and recreational boating.

National Management Measures to Control Nonpoint Source Pollution from Urban Areas

This guidance helps citizens and municipalities in urban areas protect bodies of water from polluted runoff that can result from everyday activities. These scientifically sound techniques are the best practices known today. The guidance will also help states to implement their nonpoint source control programs and municipalities to implement their Phase II Storm Water Permit Programs.

National Management Measures to Protect and Restore Wetlands and Riparian Areas for the Abatement of Nonpoint Source Pollution

This guidance document is intended to provide technical assistance to State, local, and tribal program managers and others on the best available, economically achievable means of reducing nonpoint source pollution of surface and ground water through the protection and restoration of wetlands and riparian areas, as well as the implementation of vegetated treatment systems.
