Nonpoint Source Management Program
Annual Reports

Map of Missour's major watersheds at the 8-digit HUC level

Section 319 of the 1987 amendment of the Clean Water Act requires states to establish a nonpoint source, or NPS, program.  States are to identify their NPS impaired or threatened water resources (e.g., 303(d) and 305(b) reports), and develop and implement controls to improve or prevent water quality impacts to those specified waters.  States are to report progress and success in implementing programs and controls, and to the extent possible, report on water quality improvements.

To meet the requirements of the Section 319 NPS Program, Missouri annually reports on the state's progress in meeting the goals outlined in the Nonpoint Source Management Plan.  The document also captures various NPS activities within each of the 66 major watersheds of the state (see map to left). The below table provides a break down of the document according to the table of contents.

The NPS annual report are submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and various stakeholders. The information reported captures activities between Oct. 1 and Sept. 30 of the federal fiscal year.

Beginning in 2012 the NPS Management Program Annual Report format was changed, due to this change individual watershed reports are no longer included in the annual report. For specific watershed information please see the 2006-2010 Annual Report links below.
