ANALYSIS OF AGRICULTURAL NONPOINT POLLUTION CONTROL OPTIONS IN THE ST. ALBANS BAY WATERSHED

This report used a computer model, the Agricultural Nonpoint Source Pollution Model (AGNPS), to estimate nutrient losses both within the watershed at the field scale and at the watershed outlet. The capability of AGNPS to evaluate problem sites within a watershed can assist nonpoint pollution program administrators in targeting best management practices (BMP's). We concluded that substantial water quality improvements are possible from barnyard runoff control, animal waste storage structures, and timely nutrient applications.
