    Nonpoint source pollution generally results from land runoff, precipitation, atmospheric deposition, drainage, seepage or hydrologic modification. The term "nonpoint source" is defined to mean any source of water pollution that does not meet the legal definition of "point source" in section (14) of the Clean Water Act. That definition states. Most programs used to control agricultural nonpoint source pollution focus on in-field best-management practices, but there is a growing interest in the use of off-field control techniques (Clausen and Meals, ). The most commonly used off-field control practices are vegetative filter strips and.

    Virginia completed its first nonpoint source pollution assessment in , with subsequent updates and refinements. The assessment ranks the state's watersheds, based on land use, livestock population, forest harvesting, disturbed acreage, best management practices, implementation and erosion rates for potential nonpoint source pollution. Nonpoint Source Program Goal. The goals of the Nonpoint Source (NPS) Program are to control pollution from nonpoint sources to the waters of the state and to protect, maintain and restore waters of the state that are vulnerable to, or are impaired by nonpoint source pollution.
