      Interview by Richard Coupe (U.S. Geological Survey) of Richard Rebich-- a scientist involved in the National Water Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Study of Agricultural Chemical Transport (ACT)-- results of SPARROW Modeling. SPARROW is a a modeling tool for the regional interpretation of water-quality . The NSL consists of two research units, Water Quality and Ecology (WQERU) and Watershed Physical Processes, with a total of 15 scientists. The NSL research program emphasizes interdisciplinary studies dealing with physical, chemical, and biological processes related to natural resources in agricultural watersheds, and assessing strategies for. water quality management program can use—each for its specific program need—when evaluating water quality. The new method also provides DEQ with a transparent and repeatable process for making use-support decisions and, moreover, it will improve the level of certainty in assessment decisions.

It was recognized that the cost of installing agricultural water quality best management practices (BMPs) could impose a financial burden on individual farmers.

PREFACE. Water Quality for Agriculture was first published in as Irrigation and Drainage Paper Although many of the basic concepts of salinity control and dealing with poor quality water remain the same, new data and experience have prompted us.

Stormwater management is an integral component of Maryland’s environmental consciousness. The State is home to numerous streams and rivers that ultimately drain to Chesapeake Bay, the largest inland estuary in the United States. The Water Quality Standards Handbook is a compilation of EPA's water quality standards (WQS) program guidance including recommendations for states, authorized tribes, and territories in reviewing, revising, and implementing guidance in this handbook supports EPA’s WQS regulations at 40 CFR Part The Water Quality Standards Handbook was first issued in and provided a.

The Maryland Water Quality Financing Administration was created during the session of the Maryland General Assembly as a component unit of the State of Maryland. The key purpose is to encourage capital investment for wastewater and drinking water projects pursuant to the Federal Clean Water Act of and the Federal Safe Drinking Water.

The Water Supply Program is part of the Water and Science Administration within the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE).

The mission of the Water Supply Program is to ensure safe and sustainable supplies of water for drinking and other purposes to meet current and future needs of communities and ecosystems.

The purpose of part of the National Water Quality Handbook (NWQH) is to describe methods for monitoring the water quality response to land use and land management activities and conservation practices. These methods include how to design a monitoring study, how to set up a monitor-ing station, and how to analyze the water quality data.

In addition, agricultural runoff can impact water quality, carrying potential pollutants into the Nation’s streams, lakes, ground water supplies, and estuaries. States and Tribes have identified sediment and nutrients as the most extensive agricultural contaminants affecting surface water quality, while nutrients and agrichemicals are the.

Welcome to the Agricultural Management Practices for Water Quality Protection module. This web-based training unit introduces eight basic types of agricultural practices that are suitable for reducing or minimizing water quality impacts, as part of an overall watershed approach.

These practices are often called Best Management Practices, or BMPs. More detail can be found in books solely devoted to water quality modeling (Chapra and Reckhow ; Chapra ; McCutcheon ; Thomann and Mueller ; Orlob ; Schnoor ) as well as the current literature.

Model Data. Data availability and accuracy is of concern in the development and use of models for water quality management. The Section Nonpoint Source Management Program is responsible for Maryland's part in the federal Section Nonpoint Source Management Program, established by amendments to the federal Clean Water Act.

To assess the success of nonpoint source implementation projects, Section grants support for technical and financial support. Watershed Conservation Agricultural Best Management Practices The Conservancy’s watershed conservation program staff provides technical expertise in identifying and treating all forms of non-point source pollution, such as excess nutrients and fertilizers from agricultural operations and sediment from eroding streambanks.

This type of pollution is the leading cause of water quality issues. Animal Waste Management (AWM) is a planning/design tool for animal feeding operations that can be used to estimate the production of manure, bedding, and process water and determines the size of storage/treatment facilities. The procedures and calculations used in AWM are based on the USDA-NRCS Agricultural Waste Management Field Handbook.

Maryland is a unique area in that we have a number of different resources so close together. Making this situation even more complex is the fact that those areas intertwine, and it is the responsibility of the Department of Natural Resources to effectively manage Maryland's bays and streams that lie within and tie into our watershed.
