Abstract
  • Water quality problems in the U.S. are a result of pollution form both point and nonpoint sources. While point source pollution can largely be controlled through waste water treatment, the pollution from nonpoint sources is more difficult to manage. The Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972 established legislation, under Section 208, to develop and implement areawide water quality management plans. These plans are to establish procedures and methods to control nonpoint source pollution. The management of nonpoint source pollution is confronted with numerous problems ranging from institutional to financial. These problems reflect the diffuse nature of nonpoint source pollution. Oregon has used a dual approach to management of nonpoint source pollution on nonurban lands. The Forest Practices Act has been relied upon to control nonpoint source pollution on forest lands, while management of nonpoint source pollution on agricultural lands has been piecemeal.
