Abstract:

Nonpoint source NPS pollution is a major pollution concern of the nation and, as point sources have become more controlled, NPS pollution is receiving increased Federal attention. The Department of Defense and the Army are following the national goals of reducing NPS pollution. Army Regulation 200- 1, Environmental Protection and Enhancement, requires that NPS pollution be minimized and that Army installations and major commands comply with Federal and state regulations. However, environmental managers and engineers have no concise summary of alternatives available for NPS pollution control. This report presents a range of alternatives, both structural and nonstructural, that may be used to ensure that Army major commands and installations are able to not only comply with legislative and regulatory requirements, but also to be good neighbors and stewards of valuable resources. Nonpoint Source NPS Pollution, Best Management Practices BMPs, Environmental compliance.
