The 22nd National Nonpoint Source (NPS) Monitoring Workshop is an important forum for sharing information and improving communication on controlling and tracking NPS pollution at its source and in receiving water bodies. The focus of the workshop is holistic and includes approaches to assessing and solving problems in watersheds largely impacted by NPS pollution. The emphasis will be on integrating resources and skills from the private and public sectors, with sessions devoted to bringing together individuals from a wide range of backgrounds including science, engineering, business, public policy, education, and community groups. Project examples of edge of field (EoF) monitoring, the National Water Quality Initiative (NWQI), and success story monitoring issues will be coupled with specific technical and programmatic sessions to help attendees better understand the full range of resources and skills that can be pooled to solve our nationís water quality problems at the local and watershed levels. This event will bring together NPS monitoring and technical personnel from state, federal, tribal, and municipal governments; the private sector; academia; environmental groups; and local watershed organizations to share lessons learned from completed NPS projects, new technologies and monitoring approaches, and examples of successful application of NPS control practices, measures, programs, and policies.
