Part of: Urban Runoff Quality: Impact and Quality Enhancement Technology


This paper briefly describes several nonpoint source (NPS) pollution control projects motivated largely by local need, not by government regulatory and funding programs. The case studies are intended to stimulate thinking concerning the technical approaches used and the value of encouraging a 'grass roots' approach to NPS pollution management. In the absence of, and perhaps unfettered by, government controls, innovative, cost-effective NPS pollution control measures have been designed and implemented. Experience gained on these and similar 'grass roots' projects is used to draw conclusions and make certain recommendations concerning NPS pollution control.
