Abstract: With the advent of the U.S. EPA's municipal/ industrial NPDES and Coastal Zone Management programs the development of effective non-point pollution control programs has become the most complex and perplexing challenge facing local and state stormwater authorities. Prince George's County Maryland's Department of Environmental Resources under the auspices of the U.S EPA's Chesapeake Bay Nonpoint Source Program and Maryland's Department of the Environment is conducting a comprehensive non-point pollution reduction pilot project. The project's scope is to develop, implement and measure the effectiveness of a multifaceted community based non-point pollution control program within a developed urban watershed. A variety of traditional and innovative structural stormwater treatment practices and nonstructural source reduction strategies have been integrated into the project.
