Purpose of book and how it can best be used / M.M. Holland --Development and implementation of a nonpoint source pollution control programme / J. Chandler [and others] --The hydrologic cycle and factors affecting the generation, transport and transformation of nonpoint source pollutants / G. Jolánkai and W. Rast --Types of aquatic pollutants. Assessment and control of nonpoint source pollution of aquatic ecosystems: a practical approach. This book is designed to review present knowledge and experience regarding the assessment and control of nonpoint source pollution. The intention is to be practical and to be applicable in developed and developing countries.   It goes beyond tranditional nonpoint source (NPS) approaches which typically only look at stormwater as athe sole NPS pollution driver. There is some overreaching material beyond the context of NPS and its control; however, this material is still sound pollution abatement practice. Title: Assessment and control of nonpoint source pollution of aquatic ecosystems. A practical approach: Authors: Mulholland, Patrick J. Publication.

Environmental Science - Air/Water Pollution This is a practical, extensively documented guidebook on the assessment and control of nonpoint source pollution from agricultural, urban, construction, and forested areas, and on the health of aquatic ecosystems and human use of water resources. Assessment and Control of Nonpoint Source Pollution of Aquatic Ecosystems: A Practical Approach (1st Edition) by J.A. Thornton (Editor), Marjorie M. Holland (Editor), Sven-Olof Ryding (Editor), G. Jolankai (Editor), W. Rast (Editor), Thornton Jeffrey A., Walter Rast Hardcover, Pages, Published ISBN / ISBN Book Edition: 1st Edition. The full text of this article hosted at is unavailable due to technical by: The chief tool for managing nonpoint source pollution is a kind of pollution budget called a total maximum daily load. NEIWPCC funds programs and convenes workgroups to address both septic systems, a nonpoint source, and stormwater, a significant source of polluted runoff.

Grass planting and laying of straw around construction sites help reduce runoff and associated nonpoint source pollution. Agricultural Operations. Buffer strips are planted located between a farm field and a body of water. The buffer strip absorbs soil, fertilizers, pesticides, and other pollutants before they can reach the water. With point-source pollution generated by industries gradually coming under control, non-point source (NPS) pollution in China nowadays poses a severe threat to water quality and river basin ecosystem. vehicular pollution, air pollution control, water pollution control, solid waste management and disposal, environmental legislation, environmental management, pollution control technologies Contents 1.

Control of non-point source (NPS) water pollution remains elusive in the United States (US). Many US water-bodies which have been primarily impacted by NPS pollution have not achieved water quality goals set by Clean Water Act. Technological advances have been made since , yet many water resources fail to meet water quality standards.
