Abstract: The development of effective nonpoint pollution control programs has become one of the most complex challenges facing local and state authorities. Because of the multifarious nature of nonpoint pollution sources and possible solutions, a comprehensive combination of integrated treatment devices and source control techniques must be used to reduce pollutant loads to the maximum extent possible. The 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 demonstration project to showcase and measure the effectiveness of a comprehensive watershed based urban nonpoint pollution reduction program.
