A Water Resource Research Institute project initiated in 1987 and aimed at determining the effectiveness of vegetative buffers in removing sediment and nutrients from agricultural drainage has been extended and expanded under a cooperative funding agreement among several agencies and university scientists. The results of the study should allow more accurate prediction of how vegetative buggers can aid in solving agricultural nonpoint source pollution problems.
As required by Section 319 of the Water Quality Act of 1987, North Carolina has compiled and submitted two nonpoint source (NPS) assessment reports. The reports identify navigable waters of the state impacted by nonpoint source pollution, and lays out plans to control the pollution. The Division of Environmental Management applied to the Environmental Protection Agency for funds to implement water control programs.
