Program Plan

EPA Region X has recently approved Oregon's Water Quality Nonpoint Source Control Program Plan.  Oregons Nonpoint Source (NPS) Management Plan identifies the pollution management programs, strategies and resources that are currently in place or that are needed to minimize or prevent Nonpoint source pollution effects for the years 2000-2004.  The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has the responsibility of overseeing and implementing the States NPS Management Program by coordinating with many local, State and federal agencies and organizations throughout the State of Oregon.

This revision to the NPS Management Plan represents the unified effort of many agencies and individuals to outline the various pollution control strategies which are currently taking place or are proposed for future implementation.  In addition, category goals and implementation milestones are described for each of the eight EPA designated NPS pollution categories.

Since its inception, Oregons NPS Program has strongly supported and promoted the collaborative efforts of state, federal, and local agencies as well as private organizations in order to achieve NPS goals.  The State of Oregon is committed to implementing an environmentally sensitive program which focuses on the attainment of water quality goals by using a balanced approach of education, research, technical assistance, financial incentives and regulation.
