Preface
The L'.S. Environmental Protection Agency (LPA) has prepared this final document to replace the
most recent draft version of the monitoring and reporting requirements for section 319 watershed
projects (L'.S. I: PA, 1990). The earlier draft document limited water quality monitoring protocols
to chemical and physical parameters only. This final document maintains those chemical and
physical protocols (with some increased flexibility In sampling frequency), but also adds protocols
lor biological and habitat parameters.
Increased flexibility in sampling frequency for chemical and physical parameters is provided to ad-
dress western concerns that ephemeral streams are generally not supportive of weekly sampling over
20 consecutive weeks. Instead of prescribing weekly samples. HPA now allows for the collection
of 20 samples that are evenly spaced over time within the sampling season.
Implementation monitoring has not been changed from the earlier draft version, and the same basic
watershed implementation plan information is still called for in the Management File. Minor
changes have been made in the way the Management File information is entered, and some addi-
tional data elements are included.
I ' PA has updated and expanded its supporting software package, the .\onpoirit Source Management
System, or .XPSMS. This software (Version 3.0) makes data entry and reporting simpler, and will
be distributed to all States participating in the national nonpoint source" monitoring program. The
discussion in this document is keyed to .XPSMS as appropriate, and the user's guide and HELP
screens for .XPSMS are keyed to this document as well. l or those who wish to use hard copy
forms instead of .XPSMS, EPA provides a set of forms that can be used (see Appendix B).
The reporting in this guidance is governed by the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act
(OMB Control So. 2030-0020, expires 12 31 92), and is covered by the Information Collection
Request (ICR So. 0938.04) approved for HI'A's General Grant Regulations {40 Code of Federal
Regulations, Part 3/).

Introduction
As described in the guidance for section 319 grants (U.S. FPA, 1991), the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (HPA), in cooperation with the states, is establishing a national program to in-
tensively monitor and evaluate a subset of watershed projects funded under section 319 of the Clean
Water Act as amended in 1987. Monitoring within this program will be carried out by projects
following a nationally consistent protocol, and will be supported by Regional set-aside of section
319 funds.
The section 319 guidance stated that F.PA would develop both a national framework and moni-
toring guidelines for the National Monitoring Program (U.S. EPA, 1991). EPA has developed the
national framework, or plan, for the National Monitoring Program (U.S.EPA, 1991c), and that
document was distributed in March, 1991. Key aspects of the plan are summarized under "Se-
lection Criteria for National Monitoring Program Projects" on page 2. This document provides the
monitoring and reporting guidelines.
The watershed project reporting formats prescribed in this document are organized around the de-
velopment of four1 information files:
1.	Section 305(b) Waterbodv System - includes the location of surface waters impacted by non-
point source (NPS) pollution and identified in the state's section 319 Assessment Report, the
designated beneficial uses associated with these waters, the categories and subcategories of
pollutants impacting these waters and their pollutant sources (U.S. F.PA, 1989a). The
Waterbodv System (WBS) is referred to in this document, and its use by states is assumed.
The information to be contained in the three files described below is linked to the WBS in-
formation by waterbodv identification number.
2.	Management File - includes information regarding watershed project work plans and the water
quality problems within those watersheds.
3.	Monitoring Plan File - includes information regarding the watershed monitoring plan, includ-
ing stations, parameters, and monitoring periods.
4.	Annual Report File - includes annual water quality and implementation data necessary for
tracking and interpreting progress made in watershed projects.
States will benefit from using the prescribed formats since these formats provide a convenient, log-
ical means for tracking watershed nonpoint source activities in such a way that all surface water
information can be linked to the 305(b) Waterbody System and all other data files keyed to river
reaches.
States should supplement the watershed project information required under the Management File,
Monitoring Plan File, and Annual Report File with appropriate narrative discussions in their work
plans, progress reports, and section 319 annual reports. For example, a discussion of soils, land
use changes, climate, slopes, and other physical attributes of the watershed project area should be
included in the narrative. An interpretation of annual implementation and water quality data is
another necessary component of annual watershed project reporting.
1 Earlier version included only three files. The addition of a separate file for the monitoring plan has been
made to improve data organization and management in the supporting software package, NPSMS.
Introduction

-------
Selection Criteria for National Monitoring Program
Projects
The minimum requirements for all watershed projects are specified in the section 319 guidance
(U.S. LPA, 1991). These requirements plus the specific monitoring considerations contained herein
form the basis for development of projects for the National Monitoring Program.
Because monitoring of lotic environments has provided the greatest success to date in documenting
water quality improvements resulting from nonpoint source implementation, the National Moni-
toring Program has been developed primarily for stream and estuarine monitoring. This National
Monitoring Program does not, however, preclude any additional monitoring of lakes, coastal wa-
ters, wetland, and ground-water projects that states may wish to perform in conjunction with other
watershed projects. In fact, in many cases it will be appropriate for a state to supplement the stream
monitoring performed for national purposes with other monitoring to document use support or
trends in the primary water resource of interest. States have the option of proposing a wide range
of monitoring programs within their overall section 319 grant work programs.
Specific concerns related to the minimum requirements for watershed projects in the National
Monitoring Program are summarized in the following sections (U.S. HPA, 1991c).
Identification of water quality threats or problems
Those programs that include field verification of the existence of an impact on ambient stream
conditions should receive a higher priority. Information that should be provided to document
problems includes, but is not limited to:
•	A description of water resources in the area, including gradients, flows, geomorphology,
watershed sizes, waterbody sizes, ground water/surface water interactions, hydrology etc.
•	Project location (political, geological, ecoregional)
•	Water quality standards violations data (where applicable) or other indications of the severity
of the problem.
•	A description of the key factors (chemical, physical, biological, fisheries, existing management
programs etc.) affecting use support.
•	A seasonal assessment of use impacts, with critical pollutant-producing periods identified
(monitoring should be tied to critical periods).
•	A list of pollutants causing the identified problem, the levels at which they are found, and
pollutant transport modes, including lag times.
•	A description of major pollutant sources and a map showing their relationship to the impacted
water resource.
•	Pollutant budgets for key pollutants, including point sources and nonpoint sources.
•	Estimates of pollutant control needed to achieve water quality objectives.
•	A land use map.
Selection Criteria for National Monitoring Program Projects

-------
•	A short narrative describing the relationship of land use/management to the use impacts, in-
cluding an historical accounting. Discuss current land management patterns (e.g. irrigation),
existing NFS control practices, etc.
•	Climate date and important meteorologic factors.
•	Soil types, geology, slopes.
Clearly, not all of the above information will be available for all projects. Those projects, however,
which do a better job of providing these types of information will be more likely to provide reliable
results.
Nonpoint source control objectives
I-ach program should include a clear and concise project objective that addresses the documentation
of trends based on monitoring of water quality parameter(s) directly related to "the nonpoint source
impacts on the water resource.
Project area size
The ability to successfully document control of a NTS problem is in part a function of the size of
the project area. It is recommended that projects included in the National Monitoring Program
cover watersheds no greater than 30,000 acres and preferably be much smaller (see "Paired-
Watershed Study Design" on page 19).
Institutional roles and responsibilities
Proposals should identify an individual who will serve as overall project coordinator. A description
of the project coordinator's duties and time on the job is essential.
Relevant standards, rules, regulations, and laws that pertain to the project (including zoning laws)
should be addressed along with the relationship of the section 319 project to other federal, state,
or local projects. Incentives that will encourage participation of affected land owners should be
described. The extent of land owner participation expected within the critical areas and the basis
for those expectations should be provided. Past and present institutional arrangements and their
successes should be considered in developing this category.
Critical areas
A concise definition of all critical areas should be provided. There is a higher probability of docu-
menting water quality improvements if critical areas are clearly defined and a large percentage of the
critical area is scheduled for treatment. A critical area defmition should identify the pollutant or
pollutants involved, the source or sources of the pollutant, and the pollutant transport system.
T he critical area definition should reflect the relative magnitude of source, pollutant delivery to the
waterbody, relationship of the pollutant to use impacts, treatability, and relative treatment costs.
Such an approach will help project planners select treatment areas that will provide necessary pol-
lution control and a greater likelihood of water quality improvements.
Watershed plan
The project implementation plan should include systems of management practices that address the
defined water quality problems. Critical area treatment goals should be specified in quantitative
Selection Criteria for National Monitoring Program Projects

-------
terms. Management practice systems should be specifically tailored to the sources and pollutants
they will be used to control.
It is important that the watershed plan takes into account the combined effects of the management
measures that will be installed. For example, a project with suspended solids problems should as-
sess the importance of all major sediment sources and anticipate potential shifts in the importance
and/or magnitude of those sources as implementation of management practice systems proceeds.
A project focused on cropland erosion control, but having inadequate streambank stabilization,
may fail to improve water quality because suspended sediment delivered in runoff from highly
eroding lands may, after application of erosion control practices, be replaced by suspended sediment
from scoured stream bottoms and banks.
Monitoring Plan and Evaluation
The overall monitoring design in the proposal should be clearly documented. The preferred design
is the paired-watershed design which has been demonstrated to be the most effective methodology
for detecting and understanding trends in water quality data (Spooner, et al., 1985). In some pro-
posals, the paired-watershed design will not be feasible, in which case an optional study design such
as upstream downstream sites should be considered.
land treatment, precipitation, and irrigation monitoring are also key aspects of the monitoring to
be performed under the National Monitoring Program.
Quality assurance and quality control (QA QC) procedures must follow those described by EPA
(U.S. EPA, 1979; U.S. EPA, 1980; U.S. EPA, 1984a; U.S. EPA, 1984b; U.S. EPA, 1984c). EPA
grant regulations require that QA' QC plans must be approved prior to expenditure of federal funds.

NonPoint Source Management System (NPSMS)
Software
To facilitate information tracking and reporting under the National Monitoring Program, EPA has
developed data input and reporting software (NPSMS, version 3.0) which states can use to enter
their Management File and Annual Reports information. The software is a PC-based application
written in Clipper, MS-C, and assembly language. The file formats are compatible with dBase III
and the WBS software.
The discussion in this document is keyed to data entry screens of NPSMS, and all key screens are
provided in Appendix A of this document. The software also has a user's guide (U.S. EPA, 199 Id)
and on-line HELP screens.
For those who wish to report their project information on hard copy forms, EPA provides such
forms in Appendix B.

Management File
Purpose and Application
The Management File includes information regarding the implementation plans and water quality
problems within watershed project areas, or Management Areas. Its central purpose is to provide
a basis for tracking NFS control measure implementation with respect to the pollutants causing the
surface water quality problems. Implementation milestones are to be provided as supporting in-
formation in the narrative portion of the watershed project plan, but implementation goals are in-
cluded in the Management File.
Information entered into the Management File is partly dependent upon the monitoring protocol
chosen for the project. There are three types of surface water monitoring program designs that are
offered as options for each watershed project. These three designs, which will be described in
greater detail under "Monitoring Design" on page 18, are:
1.	Paired watersheds (one station for each of two watersheds)
2.	L'pstream-downstream paired stations (one station at each of two locations in same watershed)
3.	Single downstream station
For all of the study designs, the Management Area is the entire watershed project area, including
the drainage area above all sites. For example, the Management Area for an upstrcam-downstream
study includes the drainage area above the upstream and downstream monitoring stations, even
though implementation of control measures is likely to take place only in the drainage area between
the monitoring stations. The actual drainage areas above each monitoring station are reported
under "Drainage Area and Land Use" on page 23.
The water quality problem description reported in the Management File applies to the entire
Management Area. There are several options, however, for reporting Implementation Goals and
annual implementation against those goals. These options are described in detail under "BMPs"
on page 9. The default assumed by NPSMS is that users will report BMP Implementation Coals
that apply to the entire Management Area (i.e., overall Implementation Coals). For this reason,
users must go to the Annual Report File to input Implementation Goals on a monitoring station
(more specific) basis (see "Reporting Implementation" on page 36). This cannot be done until a
monitoring plan has been reported under the Monitoring Plan File (see "Monitoring Plan File"
on page 16), and is achieved by editing BMP information already reported in the Management File
under Screen 1.21 (see "BMPs" on page 9). Thus, users must enter overall Implementation Goals
for the Management Area (Screen 1.21) for use as input to edit and report as monitoring station-
specific goals under Screen 3.09 (chemical/physical) or Screen 3.29 (biological/habitat).
There is also assumed to be no plan for implementation in control watersheds of paired studies or
in upstream areas of upstream-downstream studies. Implementation of control practices in these
areas, however, can be tracked using NPSMS (see "Implementation" on page 34). Other activities
in these areas that may affect water quality data interpretation can also be reported as notes in
NPSMS.

Data Elements for Management File
The following discussion of data elements is keyed to the data entry screens for ISPSMS (see Ap-
pendix A), but is not a complete accounting of the options available under IS'PSMS. The user's
guide and I1FLP screens for NPSMS provide more detailed information regarding data fields and
data entry options. In each subsection to follow, a discussion of the data entry process and con-
siderations will be presented, followed by additional specifics for selected data elements as necessary.
Management File Access
The Management File is accessed through Screen 0.00 of ISPSMS, by selecting Management from
the top bar. Screen 1.01 appears next, from which states can select a State. To add a State from
Screen 1.01, select Add, and then enter the two-character, alpha-numeric HPS code (State) and the
EPA Region by selecting the appropriate state from the standard list that is displayed when F1 is
pressed (State must be highlighted when F1 is pressed). Users must also enter the name of the MPS
Lead Agency. The NPS Lead Agency is the name of the agency designated by the Governor as the
lead agency with respect to implementation of the state Management Program developed under
section 319 (up to 23 characters).
Screen 1.02 is displayed once the user selects the State and NTS Lead Agency. To add a Man-
agement Area, users must select Mgmt Area Info from the top bar of Screen 1.02. The Mgmt Area
Info is then entered from Screen 1.03. This information includes a description of the Management
Area (Mgmt Area Dcsc), the Watcrbody that is to benefit from the project, the designated beneficial
uses (Uses for \VB) of the waterbody, and the significant Pollutants and their sources.
Management Area Description
Selecting Mgmt Area Desc from Screen 1.03 displays Screen 1.04, from which the user can enter
the Management Area Name and identification number (ID). The Name (or watershed project
name) is to be determined by the state or territory, and consists of 45 characters and/or numbers.
The Management Area ID consists of up to 23 characters and/'or numbers; the first two characters
are the two-letter state code. F.ach watershed project in a state/territory must have a unique Man-
agement Area Name and ID.
Participating Agencies and a Project Description are also reported from Screen 1.04. Participating
Agencies are those who have significant roles in the planning or implementation of the watershed
project, and may include federal, state, and local agencies.
To enter a narrative Project Description, users must first select Notes from the top bar of Screen
1.04. The Project Description is a short, narrative statement of the major problems and pollutant
sources, implementation goals, and evaluation goals of the project. Aspects of the project that
make it special or unique can also be highlighted in this field.
Waterbodies
Selecting Waterbody from Screen 1.03 displays Screen 1.05, from which the user can enter the
waterbody Name and identification number (ID) as specified in the WBS user's guide (U.S. EPA,
1989a). The WBS provides for a 45-character field for the Name and an alpha-numeric field of 23
(2-character (state code) plus 21-alpha-numeric) for the ID. The waterbody to report for each
watershed project is that impaired or threatened waterbody which is intended to benefit from the
pollution control activities in the watershed project. This applies even if the waterbody is down-
stream from all monitoring stations, and is, therefore, not being monitored as part of the National
Monitoring Program.
Designated Use Support
Select Uses for YVB from the top bar of Screen 1.03 to enter on Screen 1.06 the designated Use(s)
and use support status (Use Support Code) for the waterbody identified above (see
Management File
7

-------
"Waterbodies"). Designated Uses are to be consistent with those that the state reports under the
WBS (U.S. EPA, 1989a) and in their section 305(b) reports (U.S. EPA, 199 le). Uses may be se-
lected from the standard list that is displayed by pressing FJ when Use is highlighted. Use Support
Codes are also derived from the WBS and section 305(b) guidance (U.S. EPA, 199le), with the
options being fully supported (F), partially supported (P), threatened (T), and not supported (N).
'Threatened waters" refers to those waters that fully support their designated uses but that may not
fully support uses in the future (unless pollution control action is taken) because of anticipated
sources or adverse pollution trends (U.S. EPA, 199le).
Pollutants and Relative Source Contributions
Select Pollutants from the top bar of Screen 1.03 to enter on Screen 1.07 the pollutants or pollutant
categories (Pollutant Name) which are the principal factors creating the water quality problems in
the waterbody identified above (see "Waterbodies" on page 7). A simple list of pollutants that is
based upon the Waterbody System's Nonattainmcnt Causes (U.S. EPA, 1989a) is displayed for use
by pressing F! when Pollutant Name is highlighted. Users can add pollutants to the list provided
(through Options which is accessed from Screen 0.00), but EPA strongly encourages states to select
from the existing list.2 This information is provided to give a general sense of the kinds of pollutants
that impair or threaten designated uses in the project area.
In addition to reporting on the major pollutants causing the water quality problems in the
waterbody identified, states are to report their best professional judgment regarding the overall
contribution of nonpoint sources (N"PS), point sources (POINT), and background sources
(BACKGROUND) to the water quality problem. These contributions are to be expressed as a
decimal fraction, where the sum= 1.0. For example, in a watershed where nonpoint sources con-
tribute 75 percent of the problem, the nonpoint source contribution would be. reported as 0.75.
Along with this overall estimate of the relative contributions of sources, states are to report the
primary type of information (Information Type) used to make the estimate. The options are (1)
chemical load data (Information Type=L), (2) chemical concentration data (Information
Type=C), (3) biological or habitat data (Information Type=l), (4) modeling data (Information
Typc= \I), or (5) a user-defined alternative information type. A pop-up screen is available for se-
lecting or adding the appropriate Information Type by pressing F1 when Information Type is high-
lighted.3
Best Management Practices and NPS Control Measures
By selecting BMPs & Proj Funding from Screen 1.02, Screen 1.20 is displayed, from which users
can enter information regarding the best management practices (BMPs) to be applied, the sources
controlled (Sources Cntld) by the BMPs, the Pollutants controlled by the BMPs, the Impaired Uses
expected to benefit from the BMP implementation, and the Funding for the project.
The selection of BMPs and control measures is an essential part of a watershed project implemen-
tation plan. Linkage of these control practices to the identified use impairment(s), the pollutant(s)
causing the use impairment(s), and the source(s) of the pollutant(s) is key to the development of
an efficient and effective implementation program. NPSMS emphasizes this linkage through its
hierarchical structure, where:
1.	E.ach control practice is linked directly to (or "owns") one or more sources controlled.
2.	Each source controlled owns one or more pollutants controlled.
3.	Each pollutant controlled owns one or more impaired uses.
2	States that add pollutants should make sure that they are adding pollutants, not indicators of impacted
uses. For example, fish kills are considered impacts, not pollutants.
3	All pop-up lists or tables (i.e., system tables) can be edited only through Options, which is accessed from
Screen 0.00 by selecting Options. Users then select System Tables from the displayed menu. This displays
all lists or tables that can be edited by the user.
Management File
8

-------
In short, any combination of BMP or system, source to be controlled by the BMP or system,
pollutant to be controlled by the BMP or system, and impaired use addressed by the BMP or sys-
tem, can be reported.
BMPs
Select BMPs from Screen 1.20 to report on Screen 1.21 the best management practices (BMPs) and
control measures which will be undertaken to reduce pollutant loads and/or impacts from each
source identified in the WBS for the waterbody reported under Screen 1.05. "1'he Management Area
ID (Mgmt Area) will be displayed as BMP information is entered.
By selecting Add from Screen 1.21, users can enter BMP information. The BMP Name can be
reported in the 45-character field as BMPs, BMP systems, Resource Management Systems, or other
functional units that best represent the control actions undertaken. States are encouraged to adapt
information from existing reporting systems (e.g., U.S.DA. - A.S.C.S. Form AD-S62, Conserva-
tion Reporting and Evaluation System) to the extent possible to minimize duplication in reporting.
A pop-up list is provided by pressing F1 when BMP .\arnc is highlighted.
The BMP Type is to be reported as either "A" (annual) or "C" (cumulative). For example, man-
agement practices such as conservation tillage are annual practices, whereas structures (e.g., animal
waste storage structures) are cumulative practices. Similarly, in urban settings, grass filter strips arc
annual practices, while wet ponds arc cumulative practices.
Implementation Reporting Units are also reported, and should be reliable indicators of the extent
to which the pollutant source will be controlled (e.g., tons of animal waste managed instead of
number of dairy farms treated). I"hese units are not to be changed over the lifetime of the project.
The Implementation Goal for each BMP or control measure is to be reported as well. This goal
is expressed as the number of BMP units that are needed for the watershed project to be successful
in improving or protecting water quality. The annual implementation of BMPs will be tracked in
annual reports (see "Implementation" on page 34).
There are several options for reporting BMP Implementation Goals and annual implementation
against those goals. For example, projects may wish to simply establish overall BMP Implemen-
tation Goals for the Management Area, and report annually the implementation in the entire
project area. This option is depicted in Figure 1 on page 11. Tracking is simpler under this sce-
nario, but (unless the relatively weak single-station monitoring design is utilized in the project) the
implementation cannot be related to the water quality data collected in the monitoring program.
Alternatively, projects could establish Implementation Goals for each of the monitoring station
drainage areas (see Figure 2 on page 12). Under this scenario, tracking is more complicated, but
the implementation can be related directly to the water quality data collected in the monitoring
program.4
In the above two scenarios it was assumed that only one monitoring program exists within the
Management Area. In cases where two5 monitoring programs exist (i.e., a biological/habitat and
a chemical /'physical monitoring program), then Implementation Goals can either be established for
each monitoring station drainage area under each of the two monitoring programs, or overall Im-
plementation Goals could be established for the entire Management Area (sec Figure 3 on page
13).
It is important to note that under iXPSMS, for Management Areas with only one monitoring
program, implementation toward achieving overall Management Area goals (see Figure 1 on page
11) will be reported under the study station in paired-watershed studies, under the downstream
station in upstream-downstream studies, or under the single station for single-station studies. If
both a chemical/physical and biological/habitat monitoring program is used in a Management Area,
4	This does not guarantee, however, that statistical relationships can be established between the implemen-
tation and water quality data.
5	This is the maximum number of monitoring programs currently allowed by NPSMS for any given
watershed project (Management Area).
Management File

-------
then implementation toward achieving overall Management Area goals may be reported for either
the chemical/physical or the biological/habitat monitoring program (see Figure 3 on page 13).
The default assumed by NPSMS is that users will report single, overall Implementation Coals for
the Management Area. For this reason, users must go to the Annual Report File to input Imple-
mentation Goals on a monitoring station basis (see "Reporting Implementation" on page 36).
The BMP information reported here, in conjunction with the project implementation schedule,
serves as the basis for tracking annual implementation progress. The implementation schedule is
to be reported as part of each watershed project plan and in each section 319(h)(l 1) annual report,
and is to address as separate items each control included in the implementation plan.

Sources
Select Sources Cntld from Screen 1.20 to display Screen 1.22, from which the user can report the
sources controlled by each of the BMPs and control measures listed above (see "Best Management
Practices and NPS Control Measures" on page 8). More than one source can be reported for each
BMP or control measure. Likewise, if a given source requires more than one BMP or system, the
source can be reported for each BMP or system included in the implementation plan. As users
Add sources (Source Name), they apply to the control practice (BMP Name) currently displayed
in the BMPs, System or Control Measures for Mgmt Area window of Screen 1.22.
Sources (Nonattainment Sources) are to be named in accordance with the list provided for the WBS
(U.S. EPA, 1989a). The source codes, however, are not required, and states may use source names
which include up to 49 characters. A pop-up list of sources is made available by pressing F1 when
Source Name is highlighted.
EXAMPLE: 1'he BMP Name displayed is animal waste management. The user enters dairies and
swine operations as the Source Names. This means that animal waste management will be used to
control both dairies and swine operations in the project area.
Pollutants
Select Pollutants from Screen 1.20 to display Screen 1.23, from which users can report the
pollutants (Pollutant Name) from the sources controlled by each of the BMPs and control measures
listed above (see "Best Management Practices and NPS Control Measures" on page 8). More than
one Pollutant Name can be reported for each source. Likewise, if a given pollutant is derived from
more than one source, the pollutant can be reported for each source controlled by BMPs or systems
that are included in the implementation plan. As users Add pollutants, the BMP Name and Source
Name to which the pollutant applies will be displayed.
The pollutant names must be taken from those listed above for entry to Screen 1.07 (see "Pollutants
and Relative Source Contributions" on page 8), and may use up to 50 characters. This list of
pollutants for the Management Area can be accessed and used when adding pollutants by pressing
Fl.
EXAMPLE: The BMP Name displayed is animal waste management. The Source Name displayed
is dairies. The user enters fecal coliform as the Pollutant Name. The user then adds phosphorus
as the Pollutant Name. The user then returns to the Sources Controlled By BMP window and
changes the Source Name to swine operations. Returning back to the Pollutants For Source win-
dow, the user adds fecal coliform as the Pollutant Name. This means that animal waste manage-
ment will be used to control both fecal coliform and phosphorus from dairies, but just fecal
coliform from swine operations in the project area.
Impaired Uses
Select Impaired Uses from Screen 1.20 to display Screen 1.24, from which the user can report the
impaired uses associated with the pollutants from those sources controlled by each of the BMPs
and control measures listed above (see "Best Management Practices and NPS Control Measures"
on page 8). More than one impaired use can be reported for each pollutant. As users Add impaired
uses, the BMP Name, Source Name, and Pollutant Name to which the impaired use applies will
be displayed.
The Impaired Uses are to be selected from those reported under Screen 1.06 (see "Designated Use
Support" on page 7). The list of standard uses can be accessed and used when adding impaired
uses by pressing Fl when Impaired Uses is highlighted.
EXAMPLE: The BMP Name displayed is animal waste management. The Source Name displayed
is dairies. The Pollutant Name displayed is fecal coliform. The user enters shellfishing as the Im-
paired Use Caused By fecal coliform. The user then adds recreation as another Impaired Use
Caused By fecal coliform. The user then returns to the Pollutants For Source window and changes
the Pollutant Name to phosphorus. The user then returns to the Impaired Uses Caused By window
and enters recreation as the impaired use. (The user could also go back to the Sources Controlled

By BMP and BMPs, System or Control Measures for Mgmt Area windows and change those, but
this example will be kept simple for illustrative purposes.) This means that animal waste manage-
ment will be used (1) to control fecal coliform from dairies because of its effects on shelliishing and
recreation in the Management Area, and (2) to control phosphorus from dairies because of its ef-
fects on recreation in the project area.
Funding Information
Select Funding from Screen 1.20 to display Screen 1.25, from which users can report the funding
sources (Source of Funding) for the project (e.g., EPA funds under sections 319(h) and (i), 104, 106,
205(j)(5), 201(g)(1)(B), 314, 320, and 603(c)(2); USDA ACP funds; state funds; local funds; etc.),
the Amount of expenditure under each source, the Year (four-digit code) of expenditure, and the
use (Use of Funding, 25 characters) for all funds expended within the watershed project. States are
also to report state and local funds to provide a complete accounting of project expenditures for
implementation.
Funding sources are to be identified using up to 20 characters and/or numbers. A selectable list
of uses for funding is available by pressing F1 when the Use of Funding field is highlighted. The
selectable list can be modified by the user as needed (under Options which is accessed from Screen
0.00). Funding Amounts are to be reported using whole dollars, with a limit of $9.9 billion.

Monitoring Plan File
Purpose and Application
States arc required to perform at least a minimum level of chemical/physical or biological/habitat
monitoring for each watershed project included in the National Monitoring Program. To meet the
minimum monitoring requirements, States can choose to conduct chemical/physical,
biological, habitat, or a combination of chemical/physical and biological/habitat monitoring in each
National Monitoring Program project. States are not required to perform combinations of these
monitoring protocols, but may find that such combinations (e.g., chemical plus fisheries monitor-
ing) are useful and essentia] for tracking project success. For example, a project that tracks sus-
pended solids concentrations during the peak season for sediment loading may find that it is
necessary to perform fisheries or benthic macroinvertebrate sampling to track the overall impact
of sediment control measures on support of designated beneficial uses. Only one chemical/physical
and one biological/habitat monitoring plan can be reported in \PSMS for each watershed project
or Management Area for a maximum of four monitoring stations per study area, but each State can
report multiple projects in APS.MS.
The	Monitoring Plan File is to be used for the following:
1.	To identify the monitoring design to be used.
2.	To identify the monitoring station(s) and monitoring parameters.
3.	To identify, for chemical/physical monitoring, the quartile values for the parameters.
4.	To identify and characterize biological and habitat parameters to be monitored.
5.	To identify the monitoring season(s).
6.	To identify explanatory variables (covariates) to be monitored.
Data Elements for Monitoring Plan
Monitoring Plan File Access
The Monitoring Plan File is accessed through Screen 0.00 of SPSMS (see Appendix A), by se-
lecting Design from the top bar. This leads to Screen 2.01, which allows the user to choose either
Chemical/Physical monitoring or Biological/Habitat monitoring.
The information reported in this file is dependent upon the monitoring design and monitoring pa-
rameters selected. There are three monitoring design options (paired watersheds, upstream-
downstream, single station) and three6 basic types of parameters (chemical/physical, biological, and
habitat). Details are provided in the following subsections.
6 In ISPSMS, however, biological and habitat monitoring parameters are entered using the same screens.

-------
Choice of Monitoring Approach
Select Chemical/Physical from the top bar of Screen 2.01 if chemical and physical monitoring in-
formation is to be entered. This choice will be displayed as "C" for Data Type on Screen 2.02.
From this screen the user can add ((A)dd) the chemical and physical monitoring plan for the
Management Area.
If biological and habitat monitoring is to be performed, select Biological/Habitat from the top bar
of Screen 2.01. This choice will be displayed as "B" for Data Type on Screen 2.22. From this
screen the user can add ((A)dd) the biological and habitat monitoring plan for the Management
Area.
By pressing F1 on the highlighted State field, the user is provided with a list of those Management
Areas already entered into N.PSX1S. Monitoring plans cannot be entered unless a project has al-
ready been entered into the Management File (see "Management File" on page 6). After the
State, NPS Management Area ID, and 305(b) VVaterbody ID are entered, the QA/QC description
field (up to 64,000 characters) will be displayed. Users are required to enter descriptions of the
sampling scheme, sample handling and storage methods, analytical techniques, as well as the quality
control procedures followed during sample collection, analysis, and entry of data into APSMS
format. Full referencing of manuals used is also required.
Chemical and Physical Monitoring
Chemical and physical monitoring for nonpoint source watershed projects can be quite useful in
trend analysis because of the direct linkage that can often be made between the pollutants identified
in the water column and the control measures implemented to control those pollutants. In that
respect, properly designed and executed chemical and physical monitoring can result in sound data
bases for evaluating not only trends, but also the pollution control achieved through implementa-
tion efforts.
In some cases, however, chemical and physical monitoring may be adequate for detecting trends in
the levels of selected pollutants, but inadequate for tracking support of designated beneficial uses.
For example, a project tracking total suspended solids concentrations may show that control
measures are working, but is unlikely to obtain sufficient information to determine the status of a
cold-water fishery in the watershed. The latter information is usually gathered from biological and
habitat monitoring programs.
From Screen 2.02, existing chemical physical monitoring plans can be listed by pressing L, and new
plans can be added by pressing A. This leads to Screen 2.03, where the chemical and physical
monitoring plan details are input.
Biological Monitoring
The use of biological monitoring in section 319 programs should follow the basic precepts set out
in the Rapid Bioassessment Protocols (RBP) developed by FPA (U.S. EPA, 1989). Protocol III
for benthos monitoring and protocol V for fish would best form the basis of or a starting point for
state monitoring programs in streams. From this base States should then modify, as needed, sam-
pling procedures to tailor their individual programs to conditions in their specific area (ecoregion,
subregion, or other unifying concept).
A number of states have developed documents detailing the development and implementation of
the state macroinvcrtebrate and fish community assessment techniques that many states may find
useful in beginning their programs. EPA's draft technical reference guide on biological criteria (U.S.
FPA, 1991a) provides a detailed bibliography of papers and agency publications that deal with bi-
ological criteria development and biological/habitat monitoring techniques. This document should
be available by October 1, 1991. EPA is also developing a case-study document that describes state
development and implementation of biological criteria (U.S.EPA, 1991b). This document is ex-
pected to be completed by October 1, 1991, and should also prove beneficial to states. Since no
RBPs exist for estuaries, States should use the aforementioned manuals to select methodologies
appropriate to their area and use them as a basis to develop their own sampling program.

From Screen 2.22, existing biological/habitat monitoring plans can be listed by pressing L, and new
plans can be added by pressing A. This leads to Screen 2.23, where the biological and habitat
monitoring plan details are input.
Habitat Monitoring
Habitat may be assessed qualitatively or quantitatively. Use of a habitat assessment protocol sim-
ilar to that presented in the RBP manual should be sufficient for qualitative assessments of streams.
Modifications will be needed to tailor the assessment to local conditions that influence
macroinvertebrate communities and adjust the metric composition to more accurately reflect those
habitat parameters that influence local fish communities.
Several habitat assessment techniques are discussed in EPA's draft technical reference guide on bi-
ological criteria (U.S. EPA, 1991a), as well as in the other documents cited above (see "Biological
Monitoring" on page 17). States may use these to develop habitat assessment techniques for their
streams or estuaries. Some states may need to go beyond a qualitative assessment and use quanti-
fied techniques. Whether using qualitative or quantitative techniques, the assessment method needs
to be broad enough to cover all limiting habitat factors and associated changes in the aquatic
ecosystem.
From Screen 2.22, existing biological/habitat monitoring plans can be listed by pressing L, and new
plans can be added by pressing A. This leads to Screen 2.23, where the biological and habitat
monitoring plan details arc input.
Monitoring Design
In this guidance IvPA prescribes monitoring design options for use in watershed projects. States
may choose to supplement these designs, but the prescribed monitoring and reporting must be ad-
hered to. Despite this approach, states have much flexibility in determining both the water quality
and implementation parameters to be monitored. EPA's analyses of single-project and combined-
project data that are reported with XPSMS will provide some answers to questions regarding water
quality improvement and implementation, but more detailed analyses of the raw data are likely to
be needed to refine these preliminary' findings. The requirement to enter raw data into STORET
and BIOS7 is made largely to support such detailed analyses (see "Purpose and Application" on
page 31).
Chemical and Physical Monitoring Design
Selecting Design from Screen 2.03 displays Screen 2.04, from which users can enter the code for the
chemical/physical monitoring design to be used. Enter "P" (paired-watershed), "U" (upstream-
downstream), or "S" (single station) on Screen 2.04 for Monitoring Design to indicate the study
design that will be implemented in the watershed project for the purpose of tracking water quality
to determine trends which may be associated with N'PS implementation efforts.
Biological and Habitat Monitoring Design
Selecting Design from Screen 2.23 displays Screen 2.24, from which users can enter the code for the
biological/habitat monitoring design to be used. Enter "P" (paired-watershed), "U" (upstream-
downstream), or "S" (single station) on Screen 2.24 for Monitoring Design to indicate the study
design that will be implemented in the watershed project for the purpose of tracking water quality
to determine trends which may be associated with NPS implementation efforts. ITie following
subsections describe these three study designs in additional detail.

and physical) relating to the quality of the waterways of United States. BIOS is EPA's national biological

-------
Paired- Watershed Study Design
In the paired-watershed design there is one watershed where the level of implementation (ideally)
does not change (the control watershed) and a second watershed where implementation occurs (the
study watershed) (see Figure 4 on page 20). States are strongly encouraged to utilize the paired-
watershed design since it has been shown in agricultural NPS studies to be the most powerful study
design for demonstrating the effectiveness of NPS control practice implementation (Spooner, et al.,
1985). States are cautioned, however, that the paired-watershed design must be implemented
properly to generate good data sets. Some of the considerations to be made in designing and im-
plementing paired-watershed studies are described in this section.
In selecting watershed pairs, the watersheds should be as similar as possible in size, shape, aspect,
slope, elevation, soil type, climate, and vegetative cover (Striffler, 1965). The general procedure for
paired-watershed studies is to monitor the watersheds long enough to establish a statistical re-
lationship between them (Striffler, 1965). A correlation should be found between the values of the
monitored parameters for the two watersheds. For example, the total phosphorus values in the
control watershed should be correlated with the total phosphorus values in the study watershed.
A pair of watersheds may be considered sufficiently calibrated when a parameter for the control
watershed can be used to predict the correponding value for the study watershed (or vice versa)
within an acceptable margin of error.
It is important to note that the calibration period should cover all or the significant portion of the
range of conditions for each of the major water quality determinants in the two watersheds. For
example, the full range of hydrologic conditions should be covered (or nearly covered) during the
calibration period. This may be problematic in areas where rainfall and snowmelt are highly vari-
able from year-to-year and or in areas subject to extended wet periods or drought. Calibration
during a dry year is likely to not be adequate for establishing the relationship between the two
watersheds, particularly if subsequent years include both wet and dry periods.
Similarly, some agricultural areas of the country utilize long-term, multiple-crop rotations. The
calibration period should not only cover the range of hydrologic conditions, but also the range of
cropping patterns that can reasonably be expected to have an influence on the measured water
quality parameters. This is not to say that the calibration period should take five to ten years, but,
rather that states must use careful judgment in determining when the calibration period can be
safely ended. Much of this decision is based upon the quality of the statistical relationship estab-
lished between the two watersheds, but much is also based upon best professional judgment re-
garding the coverage of significant conditions during the calibration period.
After calibration, the study watershed is treated through implementation of NPS control practices,
and monitoring is continued in both watersheds.8 The effects of the control measures are evaluated
by testing for a change in the relationship between the monitored parameters (i.e., a change in the
correlation). If treatment is working, then there should be a greater difference over time between
the treated study watershed and the untreated (poorly managed) control watershed. Alternatively,
the calibration period could be used to establish statistical relationships between a fully treated
watershed (control watershed) and an untreated watershed (study watershed). After calibration
under this approach, the study watershed would be treated and monitoring continued. The effects
of the control measures would be evaluated, however, by testing for a change in the correlation that
would indicate that the two watersheds are more similar than before treatment.
It is important to use small watersheds (in headwaters areas usually) when performing paired-
watershed studies, since they are more easily managed and more likely to be uniform (Striffler,
1965). FPA recommends that such watersheds not be greater than 1,000 acres if possible, and
certainly not greater than 5,000 acres. The National Monitoring Program plan calls for watershed
projects that are no larger than 30,000 acres (see 'Project area size" on page 3). Within the context
of a paired-watershed study, the monitored pairs should be small sub-watersheds within the
30,000-acre (or less) project area.
8 Monitoring protocol must remain the same before, during, and after implementation of control practices.

Upstrearn-Downstream Study Design
In the upstrcam-downstream design, there is one station at a point directly upstream from the area
where implementation will occur and a second station directly downstream from that area.
Upstream-downstream designs are generally more useful for documenting the severity of a nonpoint
source than for documenting BMP effectiveness (Spooner, et al., 1985), but have been used suc-
cessfully for the latter. This design provides for the opportunity to account for covariates (e.g.,
upstream pollutant concentration that is correlated with downstream concentration of same
pollutant) in statistical analyses, and is, therefore, the design which EPA recommends in cases
where paired watersheds cannot be established.
Upstream-downstream designs are needed in cases where project areas are not located in headwaters
and/or where upstream activities occur which arc expected to confound the analysis of downstream
data (e.g., upstream point source dischargers, uncontrolled upstream NPS discharges, upstream flow
regulation, etc.).
Single-Downstream Study Design
In the single-downstream station design, there is just one station at a point downstream from the
area where implementation will occur. The single-downstream study design is the least powerful
of the three designs, and, if used, should be carefully structured to account for all significant
covariates such that the sensitivity of statistical analyses is increased. This design is not recom-
mended.
Monitoring Station Location
Biological and Habitat Monitoring
When locating sites for biological or habitat assessment, the type of impact and the project objec-
tives will determine the positioning of the sites. To assess the biological and habitat impacts of
habitat alterations caused by channelizing or dredging, sampling sites should be located in the im-
mediate areas of the habitat alteration. This provides for a better opportunity to track improve-
ments as habitat alterations are mitigated through the application of BMPS. If habitat alterations
arc caused by bed-load sediment, then monitoring sites should be placed just downstream from the
origin of the bed load sediment. If the objective is to track the impacts of water column chemistry,
then biological sites should be located at a distance downstream that is appropriate for the stream
or estuary (e.g., size and flow considerations need to be considered), the pollutant source(s) and
magnitude, and the NPS control practices to be implemented. Frequently, a distance of approxi-
mately one to two miles downstream from the pollutant source is appropriate.
If an upstrcam-downstream study design is used in biological monitoring, the upstream site should
be located far enough upstream to avoid any residual effects from downstream impacts. This is
especially important when monitoring fish community status. Upstream-downstream interaction
among fish communities may extend over a half-mile area during summer months. Sampling sites
should be far enough apart to avoid the effects of upstream-downstream community mixing.
Reference Sites for Biological Monitoring
States may wish to enhance their understanding of biological expectations and calibrate their bi-
ological indices by establishing a set of reference sites. Reference sites should
1.	Be of a number sufficient to characterize the natural variability (outside of environmental im-
pacts) and the community potential that would be encountered in the respective ecoregion for
the specific stream or estuary size and type.
2.	Be situated in the same ecoregion, having similar land use, land surface form, natural vege-
tation potential, and soils as each other (Omernik, 1987) and the study area.
Monitoring Plan File
21

-------
3.	Be from least impacted areas that reflect realistically attainable conditions in the study area
through proper application of pollution prevention measures.
4.	Be sampled at the appropriate time(s) of year (refer to seasonality) at least a total of three times
during the life of the study (preferably at the beginning of the study).
5.	Be sampled during the same season of the year and at the period of greatest likelihood of im-
pact.
The data from these collections would then be used to calculate an "achievable value" for the
project area. This value would represent what could be expected to be achieved in the area or
ecoregion in the absence of undue environmental disturbance or impact.
Chemical and Physical Monitoring
Site location and establishment are discussed in several existing monitoring guides and texts (U.S.
I-PA, 1978; U.S. UPA, 1981; U.S.G.S., 1977; Ponce, S.U., 1980; Wetzel and Uikens, 1979;
Brakensiek, Osborn, and Rawls, 1979). Within any given budget, site location is generally a func-
tion of water resource type, monitoring and evaluation objectives, and data analysis plans. It is
strongly recommended that nonpolnt source monitoring stations be located near established (e.g.,
U.S.G.S.) gaging stations when possible due to the importance of obtaining accurate flow records.
Additional considerations in site selection are site accessibility and landowner cooperation in data
collection efforts.
For all study designs, stations should be located such that confounding activities are minimized.
For example, if an upstream-downstream study for agriculture can be located either above or below
an urban area, it is recommended that, all else being equal, the study be performed above the urban
area to avoid the influence of urban activities. Similarly, stations should be located as near as
possible to the pollution sources being controlled to minimize the likelihood that unmanaged ac-
tivities or unexpected events influence the water quality.
Site location alone is not adequate to define sampling location for chemical/physical monitoring.
Additional considerations include the vertical (depth) and horizontal position at which samples arc
taken. This guidance recommends simple grab sampling, but time-integrated, flow-integrated, and
depth-integrated sampling may also be used to obtain samples that are more representative of the
"target population"9 for the study. In taking samples, it is important to keep in mind the target
population being sampled. If the population that is sampled is changed over time because of im-
precise sampling, then the inferences made from analysis of the data may be inaccurate.
Monitoring Station Identification
Monitoring stations are identified in APSMS after the monitoring design has been entered (see
"Monitoring Design" on page 18). Monitoring station information is entered in the same manner
for both chemical/physical and biological/habitat monitoring plans, but from different screens in
APSMS. Monitoring station information for chemical/physical monitoring plans is entered from
Screen 2.06, which is accessed by selecting Stations from Screen 2.03. For biological/habitat
monitoring plans, users select Stations from Screen 2.23 to display Screen 2.26.
The following information applies to both Screen 2.06 (chemical/physical) and Screen 2.26
(biological/habitat). For paired-study designs (Monitoring Design = P), enter the STORET Agency
Code (Agency Cd; 1-8 characters) and primary Station Code (1-15 alpha-numeric) for both the
Control (C) and Study (S) stations. For upstream-downstream designs (Monitoring Design = U),
9 In a statistical sampling program, the "target population" is what we are sampling from to make inferences
about. For example, we may intend to make inferences regarding changes in the seasonal grab-sample
concentrations of key chemical/physical parameters that are expected to be controlled through NPS im-
plementation efforts. We might define a sample to be the phosphorus concentration in 1 -liter grab samples
taken during spring, at mid-depth, in the middle of the tributary, 500 feet below the source. Our analysis
of these sample data would allow us to make inferences regarding springtime, instantaneous phosphorus
concentrations in the tributary below the source.
Monitoring Plan File

enter the Agency Cd and Station Code for both the Upstream and Downstream stations, l or
single-station designs (Monitoring Design = S), enter the two codes for that station only.
In some watersheds, a monitoring station may be shared between two adjacent monitoring projects.
A "Y" in the Share field of the Stations for: window of Screen 2.06 or 2.26 indicates that the station
is included in more than one monitoring project. For example, in a case where the downstream
station in one project serves as the upstream station in a project downstream, the station would
be shared. Similarly, a study station in a paired study may also serve as a downstream station in
an upstream-downstream study. APSMS will not allow a station to be used for more than one
study design in a watershed unless it is designated as a shared station.
Drainage Area and Land Use
Drainage area and land use information are entered in the same manner for both chemical/physical
and biological/habitat monitoring plans, but from different screens in iS'PSMS. Drainage area and
land use information for chcmical/physical monitoring plans is entered from Screen 2.06, which is
accessed by selecting Stations from Screen 2.03. For biological/habitat monitoring plans, users se-
lect Stations from Screen 2.23 to display Screen 2.26.
The following information applies to both Screen 2.06 (chemical physical) and Screen 2.26
(biological habitat). Fnter the drainage area (Drainage-Mi field in Stations for: window) in square
miles (up to 8 positions, decimal point may be entered) for each monitoring station. The following
identifies the drainage area to report for each study design:
•	Paired-watershed study
ฆ	Control watershed: total drainage area upstream of control monitoring station
ป Study watershed: total drainage area upstream of study monitoring station
•	Upstream-downstream paired stations
ฆ	Upstream station: total drainage area upstream of monitoring station
ฆ	Downstream station: total drainage area upstream of monitoring station minus total
drainage area above upstream station (i.e., the drainage area between the two stations)
•	Single station
ฆ	Total drainage area upstream of the single monitoring station.
Land Use in the drainage area for each monitoring station is entered from either Screen 2.06 for
chemical/physical monitoring plans or Screen 2.26 for biological/habitat monitoring plans. Users
add Land Use information on a pop-up screen displayed by pressing Enter while the Drainage-Mi
field is highlighted. On the pop-up screen, the Land Use, Year for which the information applies,
and Percentage of Drainage Area under the specified land use are entered. Land use changes can
be tracked for each monitoring station drainage area by reporting the Land Use and Percentage of
Drainage Area for each Year of the project.
Users can access a list of land uses by pressing F1 while the Land Use field is highlighted. This list
can be edited by users through the Options menu of NPSMS.
Principal Water Quality Monitoring Parameters
Monitoring parameters should be related directly to the identified problems caused by the nonpoint
sources that will be controlled, and to those principal pollutants (see "Pollutants and Relative
Source Contributions" on page 8) that will be controlled through the implementation of nonpoint
source control measures and practices.
Within these logical constraints, the state should determine which parameters are the best indicators
of water quality at the monitoring site. For example, in a watershed project where suspended
sediment is the problem, the state might perform weekly monitoring of either turbidity or total

suspended solids. No other monitoring parameters would be required with the exception of ex-
planatory variables (see "Explanatory Variables (Covariates)" on page 26). In this same situation,
the state might instead choose to perform benthic macroinvertebrate monitoring because these
organisms have been shown to be particularly sensitive to the sedimentation problems in the
watershed. This would be an acceptable alternative, and might in fact be the best monitoring ap-
proach for the project.
The following subsections provide additional details regarding monitoring parameters.
Chemical and Physical Parameters
To meet the parameter requirements for chemical/physical monitoring in the National Monitoring
Program, states must collect samples for at least one chemical or physical10 parameter and its ex-
planatory variables (see "Explanatory Variables (Covariates)" on page 26).
Enter monitoring parameters information by first selecting Parameters from Screen 2.03. This leads
to Screen 2.07, from which the user can enter the parameters for the monitoring station shown in
the Parameters for: window. Eor each station, enter the parameter codes (1-12 alpha-numeric) and
common names (up to 50 alpha-numeric) (Code/Name) for each chemical or physical parameter
monitored. A list of selected STORE T parameters can be accessed for use by pressing F1 while the
Code/Name field is highlighted. Parameter names and codes can be added as needed through
iS'PS.MS Options, which is accessed from Screen 0.00.
The Reporting Units and Parameter Type for the parameter are automatically entered when the
parameter is added. The units and type can be changed by editing the standard parameter list that
can be accessed from the System Tables menu under Options (start with Screen 0.00). Users should
note that EPA expects that states will report chemical parameter data in concentration units, not
loading units. This is due to the expected higher cost associated with performing accurate moni-
toring of loads. Parameter Type options are STORET (S), 305(b) Waterbody System (W), BIOS
(B), and user-defined (U). If the parameter is an Explanatory Variable (see "Explanatory Variables
(Covariates)" on page 26), for chemical/physical monitoring, then "Y" is entered. If
chemical/physical parameters are monitored as Explanatory Variables for biological/habitat moni-
toring, then the parameter is reported under Screen 2.27 as part of a biological/habitat monitoring
plan.
Eor each chemical/physical parameter monitored (including Explanatory Variables), report also on
Screen 2.07 the 25th, 50th, and 75th quartile values (Parameter Quartiles) for each monitoring
station; these values are expressed in the Reporting Units for the parameter. Parameter quartile
values are to be reported in an 8-character alpha-numeric field; exponential notation can be used
(e.g., 1.0E5 represents 100,000).
States are to use existing data for the monitoring period(s) (see "Monitoring Year and Seasons" on
page 29), or data from the first year of monitoring if suitable pre-project data are not available, to
determine the 25th, 50th, and 75th percentile value for each of the chemical/physical parameters
(including covariates) to be monitored. To determine these quartile values, first arrange all data
points in order of magnitude. The median value is the 50th percentile; if there are an even number
of data points, the median is calculated as the mean of the two middle data points. The 25th
percentile is that value below which 25 percent of the data points fall. The 75th percentile is the
value below which 75 percent of the data points fall (SAS Institute, Inc., 1985).11
These quartile values are to be determined independently for each monitoring station. For example,
in a paired-watershed design where total phosphorus is the principal parameter, the state must de-
termine the quartile values for total phosphorus at the control site and at the study site. These
quartile values are likely to be different. In cases where the state is establishing new monitoring

well.

Procedure.

stations in the project area, the quartile values must be determined using the first full year (for the
period monitored) of monitoring data at each of the new stations.
The quartile values are used to establish cutoffs for the frequency table shown in Screen 3.06 under
Parameters for (see "Chemical and Physical Parameters" on page 32). It is important to note that
quartile values should be based solely on data for the monitoring season or seasons to be moni-
tored. If, for example, the irrigation season is the only season to be monitored in a project, then
historical or first-year data for that season should be used to establish the quartile values. If the
irrigation season and one other season (e.g., winter) are monitored, then the quartile values may
be based on historical or first-year data for those two seasons combined.12
Biological and Habitat Parameters
To meet the parameter requirements for biological habitat monitoring in the National Monitoring
Program, states must collect samples for at least one biological or habitat parameter and its ex-
planatory variables (see "Explanatory Variables (Covariates)" on page 26).
Hnter monitoring parameters information by first selecting Parameters from Screen 2.23. This leads
to Screen 2.27, from which the user can enter the parameters for the monitoring station shown in
the Parameters for: window. For each station, enter the parameter codes (1-12 alpha-numeric) and
common names (up to 50 alpha-numeric) (Code/Name) for each biological or habitat parameter
monitored. A list of selected BIOS parameters can be accessed for use by pressing F1 while the
Code/Name field is highlighted. EPA recognizes, however, that STORET and BIOS may not in-
clude codes for all valid monitoring parameters. If there is no STORET or BIOS code for the pa-
rameter, then the State should develop and enter its own code for the parameter, providing
appropriate documentation to EPA. These new parameters can be added to the list provided under
XPSXIS by accessing the System Tables menu through Options (start with Screen 0.00).
The Units and Parameter Type for the parameter are automatically entered when the parameter is
added. The units and type can be changed by editing the standard parameter list under the System
Tables menu accessed under Options. For each biological and habitat measure, the seasonal mean
score for each monitoring station will be reported. The value should be calculated from the mean
of all index scores for all samples and,or replicates taken during the designated season. Units, then,
should match those needed to report mean scores. Parameter Type options are STORET (S),
305(b) Waterbody System (W), BIOS (B), and user-defined (U). If the parameter is a
biological'habitat Explanatory Variable for biological habitat monitoring (see "Explanatory Vari-
ables (Covariates)" on page 26), then "Y" is entered. Biological and habitat parameters cannot be
reported as Explanatory Variables for chemical physical monitoring under SPSMS. This is not
expected to be a problem since the sampling frequency for biological and habitat parameters is not
likely to ever be a minimum of 20 times per season, as is required for chemical/physical monitoring
plans.
Frequency tables will not be utilized for biological and habitat parameters, but benchmark scores
are reported to provide for interpretation of score data. Report the Maximum Potential and Rea-
sonable Attainment scores for each parameter. These values can be based on data from reference
sites (see "Reference Sites for Biological Monitoring" on page 21) or taken from an historic data
base, and provide a means for calculating percentages from score data for the purpose of combining
data for many projects across the Nation. Ecoregion (or some other unifying concept) reference
data, if collected, must be collected in a similar manner to the section 319 project design. For
closed-end indices, such as the IBI, the maximum potential value is the highest value that can be
scored (i.e. 60). For open-ended indices, such as the Iwb, state biologists should pick the index
value that their data or professional judgement indicate is the highest possible score that could be
achieved in their area of concern. Reasonable attainment values are best calculated from a reference
data base (see "Reference Sites for Biological Monitoring" on page 21) by using the scores attained
at the reference sites as an indication of the biological conditions that can be achieved under least
12 NPSMS, Version 3.0, does not currently support the reporting and use of unique quartile values for each
season monitored. EPA recognizes the possibility that this capability may be needed by users who mon-
itor in two separate seasons that have markedly different water quality. For this reason, EPA will attempt
to add the capability for reporting and using unique seasonal quartile values (for each monitoring station).

impacted conditions (note that this score is not the same as the maximum potential score). If the
Maximum Potential and Reasonable Attainment scores are based on reference site data, then enter
"R" for Basis. Otherwise, enter "B" to indicate that best professional judgment was used to estimate
these values.
Reference site data should also be used to provide the parameter index values (percentages, not
scores) that are indicative of the level of use support in the monitored waterbody.13 If reference site
data are not available, then best professional judgment should be used in identifying the scores at
which uses begin to be Fully Supported, Threatened, and Partially Supported. For example, enter-
ing 85% for Fully Supported, 50% for Threatened, and 25% for Partially Supported would be in-
terpreted to mean that index values of 85% and above are fully supportive of uses, while values of
50% to 84% arc fully supportive but threatened, and values of 25% to 49% show that uses are
partially supported. Index values below 25% would be non-supportive of uses. Values for Fully
Supported and Partially Supported are required, but values for Threatened are optional.
Two types of indices are acceptable under the National Monitoring Program: measures of overall
community status (IBI, Iwb, BCC, ICI and like indices) or a measure of a critical faunal component
most sensitive to the instream impact (i e., spawning success or population density of a species).
In general, measures of overall community status are preferred as they incorporate a greater range
of biological responses to environmental change, thus assuring a greater likelihood of detecting en-
vironmental reactions (both anticipated and unanticipated).
To enter chemical physical parameters (e.g., temperature, turbidity, flow) that are Explanatory
Variables for biological/habitat monitoring, fust enter "C" for Explanatory Variable in the Param-
eters for: window of Screen 2.27. This indicates that the parameter is chemical physical, and causes
the window to change, displaying Explanatory Variable, Parameter Type, Units, Code/Name, and
Cutoff Values. Enter the parameter code and name (Code/Name) as you would for a
chemical physical parameter in a chemical physical monitoring plan (see "Chemical and Physical
Parameters" on page 24).
Instead of reporting quartile values for chemical and physical parameters that are used as Explan-
atory Variables for biological and habitat monitoring plans, it is more appropriate to use best pro-
fessional judgment (or, preferably, historic data if available) to identify parameter values that can
be used as Cutoff Values for "abnormally high," "normal," and "abnormally low" conditions for the
parameter during the monitoring season.14 I or example, a water temperature of less than 10 degrees
(Celsius) may be considered abnormally low for spring conditions, whereas temperatures of 25 de-
grees or greater may be abnormally high. Water temperatures of 10 to 24 degrees would be con-
sidered normal for the monitoring season. To report this information, you would enter "25" in the
Abn.High/Normal and enter "10" under Normal/Abn.Low in the Parameters for: window of Screen
2.27. In summary, for chemical and physical parameters that are used as covariates for biological
and habitat monitoring plans, enter the following;
•	Abn. High/Normal: The parameter value at which or above which the parameter value is ab-
normally high (on average) for the monitoring season.
•	Normal/Abn. Low. The parameter value below which the parameter value is abnormally low
(on average) for the monitoring season.
13	The monitored waterbody may not be the same as the waterbody that is targeted to ultimately benefit from
the pollution control obtained in the watershed project (Screen 1.05). The scores reported on Screen 2.27
are for the monitored waterbody.
14	Similar to the constraints rioted for chemical physical monitoring programs, NPSX1S, Version 3.0, does
not currently support the reporting and use of unique cutoff values for each season monitored. EPA re-
cognizes the possibility that this capability may be needed by users who monitor in two separate seasons
that have markedly different water quality. For this reason, EPA will attempt to add the capability for
reporting and using unique seasonal cutoff values for chemical/physical Explanatory Variables in
biological habitat monitoring programs (for each monitoring station).

-------
Explanatory Variables (Covariates)
The state must monitor explanatory variables, or covariates, of its monitoring parameters (applies
to chemical, physical, biological, and habitat parameters) to increase the sensitivity of statistical
analyses. Covariates to be monitored fall into two major groupings:
•	Those required by IiPA for at least the first monitoring year.
•	Those determined by the state to be important, based upon the first year of monitoring data
(or any prc-project monitoring data).
The state must monitor the following covariates in the following situations:
•	Complete set of parameters (including covariates) with exactly the same monitoring approach
and frequency at both stations in projects where either the paired-watershed, or upstream-
downstream monitoring designs are used.15
•	Total precipitation (weekly) and or a more meaningful precipitation parameter as documented
by the state (e.g., rainfall intensity may be more relevant). If the state can document that total
precipitation is not a useful covariate, then this parameter may be dropped.
•	Streamilow (at time grab sample is taken) and hydrograph stage (rising or falling, at time grab
sample is taken). If the state can document that these parameters arc not useful covariates,
then they may be dropped. These parameters, however, are required in projects which have
precipitation-driven systems.
•	Salinity is required (at time and depth grab sample is taken) for projects in tidal areas. If the
state can document that salinity is not useful as a covariate, then it may be dropped.
•	States must monitor pi I (at time grab sample is taken) in cases where the monitored parameter
is pH-dependent.
The state must propose, in addition to those covariates listed above, a set of covariates which the
state will monitor during the first monitoring year to determine whether such covariates must be
monitored throughout the course of the watershed project for the purpose of increasing the sensi-
tivity of statistical analyses. These proposed covariates should have physical meaning and or be
correlated statistically with the principal monitoring parameters.
Monitoring Frequency
Sampling frequency cannot change over the course of a project unless the state can prove that such
a change will neither decrease the sensitivity of statistical analyses at the project level nor decrease
the sensitivity of cross-project statistical analyses to be performed by EPA.
Chemical and Physical Monitoring
For projects performing chemical/physical monitoring, at least 20 evenly-spaced (over time) grab
samples are required for all chemical and physical parameters and their covariates during the sam-
pling season (see "Monitoring Year and Seasons" on page 29) each year. A maximum of one
sample per day or storm event can be used to count against the required 20 samples. Storm-event
sampling is not required.
Fvenly spaced (over time) samples are specified since the goal of the tracking effort is to detect
trends over time (see "Purpose and Application" on page 31). While storm-event sampling is es-
sential to the determination of pollutant loads, it has been shown in agricultural NPS projects that
trends can be detected with a monitoring program focused on pollutant concentration data derived
from weekly grab samples. Monitoring covariates are needed, however, to increase the sensitivity
15 NOTE: These parameters are not reported as Explanatory Variables in Screens 2.07 or 2.27 unless they
are covariates of other parameters at the same station.

-------
of the statistical analyses accounting for as much of the natural variability as possible. Nonetheless,
grab sampling programs will be adequate to meet EPA's tracking objectives while offering consid-
erable cost savings as compared to storm-event or other automated sampling programs.
Biological and Habitat Monitoring
Biological and habitat sampling should be performed with at least the following frequency:
•	I'ishery surveys - at least one to three times per season.
•	Benthic macroinvertebrates - at least once per season, with at least one to three replicates or
composites per sample.
•	Habitat - once or twice per season.
•	Bioassays - once per season.
Fish: Sampling frequency for fish communities should be one to three times per season and analysis
confined to within-scason data. One season of fish community sampling per year should be suffi-
cient for most studies. High flow conditions should be avoided as they negatively affect sampling
efficiency. Spring spawning runs and fall migration periods should be avoided if not being specif-
ically studied.
In most states, winter temperature regimes prevent effective sampling, leaving the summer season
as the most likely sampling time. Some southern states may be able to conduct sampling during
the winter months. Seasonal- variability QA/QC concerns have been detailed in the Ohio FPA
biological criteria manuals (Ohio EPA, 1988). For the purposes of this study, the biological sam-
pling season does not have to be correlated with the chemical sampling season.
Macroinvertebratcs: Macroinvertebrate sampling can be conducted seasonally or during one spe^
cific season, lvach season will need to be considered an individual data set for purposes of analysis.
To minimize expenses, states should identify the single most critical time period of potential im-
pacts and focus sampling efforts on that period. To better develop the data base, a minimum of
three replicate samples or one composite of at least three samples could be taken. States wishing
to conduct a more rigorous sampling protocol may wish to consider the use of artificial substrates
such as Hester-Dendy plates in streams or artificial seagrass in estuaries (Barber et al., 1979;
Vimstein et al., 1986). It should be kept in mind that artificial substrate samplers may not accu-
rately reflect environmental disturbances due to habitat alteration or bed load sediment impacts.
A draft RBP seasonality issue paper has defined time periods during which benthic sampling would
be most effective as May or August. States may wish to sample each month and/or all year. In
such cases, states must remain consistent in their sampling times and protocols throughout the life
of the study. Average reporting values should only- be calculated from data within a discrete season.
Habitat: Habitat assessment needs to be conducted at least once per year at the most critical period
of the sampling season. Two evaluations per year could be conducted at the beginning and end
of the sampling season to better evaluate changes occurring in the system.
Explanatory Variables
Explanatory variables, or covariates, must be monitored at the following frequencies:
1.	Chemical/Physical Monitoring Program
•	Chemical/physical covariates are monitored at the same frequency as principal
chemical/physical parameters.
2.	Biological/Habitat Monitoring Program
•	Chemical/physical covariates are monitored at the same frequency as principal
biological/habitat parameters.
Monitoring Plan File

-------
• Biological/habitat covariatcs are monitored at same frequency as the principal
biological/habitat parameters.
Monitoring Year and Seasons
Nonpoint source impacts are very often seasonal due to the seasonality of the land activities causing
the pollution, the seasonal variability of precipitation, the seasonal variability associated with
waterbody attributes, or other seasonal variability. The effectiveness of NPS control efforts is often
documented more easily in some seasons than in others. For example, if urban runoff problems
in a watershed are more pronounced and have the greatest potential for being mitigated during the
summer months, the state should identify summer as the primary monitoring season for the project.
For this reason, the state is required to identify for each watershed project the monitoring seasons
that should be used to stratify data for the purpose of increasing the sensitivity of statistical analyses.
There are two requirements associated with the establishment of these seasons.
•	The seasons and their cutoff dates will not change over the lifetime of the project. That is, the
state will group its monitoring data (see "Chemical and Physical Parameters" on page 32) by
these same seasons in each annual report. If, however, the state can prove to EPA that there
is a need to change these seasons based upon sound statistical or other reasons, then such a
change can be made provided that the state changes all project reporting to reflect the change.
•	For each sampled season, the state must meet the sampling frequency requirements specified
for biological habitat monitoring (see "Biological and Habitat Monitoring" on page 28) or
chemical physical monitoring (sec "Chemical and Physical Monitoring" on page 27) as ap-
propriate. For example, if a state is performing chemical/physical monitoring, then a mini-
mum of 20 evenly-spaced grab samples of the principal monitoring parameter must be taken
per sampled season.
I"he state is not required to monitor water quality for more than one season per year, but should
monitor during the season in which the potential for documenting improvements associated with tXPS
control implementation is the greatest. Implementation activities, however, must be tracked for all
seasons, but reported annually (see "Implementation" on page 34). The ultimate goal of any
watershed project should be the protection and or restoration of designated beneficial uses within
(or downstream f'romj the watershed. For this reason, the monitoring season(s) selected by the
state should provide water quality data that are indicative of what's truly happening in the overall
project area. For example, for a project where sedimentation is the problem, the monitoring
seasonfs) should cover the period of greatest sediment delivery, and NPS control measures should
be implemented to address the largest sediment sources.
The procedure for reporting monitoring seasons and years is the same for both chemical/physical
monitoring and biological/habitat monitoring, but different screens arc used. For chemical/physical
monitoring select Monitoring Year from Screen 2.03 to display Screen 2.05, from which the moni-
toring year information is added. For biological/habitat monitoring select Monitoring Year from
Screen 2.23 to display Screen 2.25, from which the monitoring year information is added.
F^ach monitoring season is numbered (1, 2, 3, or 4) and given a name (Season Names, up to 10
characters/numbers). Beginning and ending dates (Begin Date and End Date) are entered in
MM DD (month/day) format (inclusive). Seasons are to be described in more detail in the narra-
tive portion of the state's annual project report.
The Monitoring Year is to be determined by agreement between FPA and the state. Report the
beginning and ending dates (Begins and Ends) of the monitoring year in MM/DD format (inclu-
sive), and provide an Example for Monitoring Year 1990 in MM/YY format..
Monitoring Program Lifetime
It has been demonstrated clearly in agricultural NPS watershed projects that at least three years of
both prc-implemcntation and post-implementation monitoring are needed for the detection of wa-
ter quality trends. Watershed project work plans, therefore, should include monitoring for a mini-
mum of six to ten years to increase the probability of successful documentation of water quality
Monitoring Plan File

-------
improvements resulting from NPS implementation efforts. These long-term monitoring efforts
must be consistent over time (e.g., parameters, sampling protocol, sampling frequency and location,
monitoring design, implementation tracking) such that an adequate data base is developed for sta-
tistical analyses.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control
All states are required to submit a quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) plan for approval
by EPA. Quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) procedures must follow those described
by EPA (U.S. EPA, 1979; U.S. I-PA, 1980; U.S. FPA, 1984a; U.S. EPA, 1984b; U.S. EPA, 1984c).
EPA grant regulations require that QA/QC plans must be approved prior to expenditure of federal
funds.
Quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) data should not be included as part of the trend
measurement data, with the exception that averages of replicate sampling can be used. The state
is to report QA/QC data separately from trend measurement data since its inclusion would create
autocorrelation problems.

Annual Report File
Purpose and Application
Annual reports, under section 319(h)( 11) and section 319(h)(10), are required to be submitted by
those states that receive implementation grants under section 319 (U.S. HPA, 1991). These annual
reports are to be submitted September 1 of each year, and arc to include both an accounting of
progress made in meeting program milestones, and an assessment of water quality improvements
resulting from management program implementation. Both statewide and watershed information
are to be contained in these annual section 319 reports, and it is expected that much of the infor-
mation will be presented in narrative form.
Annual reports for watershed projects participating in the National Monitoring Program are to be
submitted as part of the annual state section 319(h)(ll) reports, and the Annual Report Pile of
.\PS\1S is the primary vehicle for states to provide this standardized, quantitative watershed project
information. The standardized information provided using the prescribed format of XPSMS is to
be supplemented with a printed listing of all raw water quality data, and the entry of all such water
quality data into PPA's STORET and/or BIOS data base. States are also required to analyze and
interpret their monitoring and implementation data, providing this information in the narrative
portion of their annual section 319(h)( 11) reports.
The tracking goal of the National Monitoring Program is to detect changes in mean pollutant levels
or biological habitat parameters over time at the project level and nationally, and to relate these
changes to NPS control practice implementation. It is, therefore, critical that water quality changes
are tracked in all projects using consistent monitoring protocols. It is also necessary that imple-
mentation tracking is comprehensive and consistent, and is linked precisely to the relevant water
quality data. The following information is entered to the Annual Report Pile:
1.	Annual chemical physical and explanatory variables data (Screen 3.05).
2.	Annual biological habitat and explanatory variables data (Screen 3.07).
3.	Implementation tracking in the watersheds and/or sub-watersheds that constitute the drainage
areas for each monitoring station in the watershed project (Screen 3.06 for physical/chemical
or Screen 3.08 for biological/habitat).
The WBS waterbody identification number (305(b) Waterbody ID on Screens 3.02 and 3.22; W/B
on other screens) provides linkage to the WBS information, and the STORET agency and station
codes provide linkage to the raw data (which is to be entered into STORET or BIOS) and to the
river reach.
Users can call the STORET user-assistance group at (800) 424-9067 or (703) 883-8328 for all in-
formation regarding STORET/BIOS access, data entry, and training, as well for answers to
questions regarding the use of STORET/BIOS.

The Annual Report File is accessed through Screen 0.00 of NPSMS (see Appendix A) by selecting
Annual from the top bar. This displays Screen 3.01, from which the user can select either
Chemical/Physical or Biological/Habitat data. Selection of Chemical/Physical displays Screen 3.02,

Water Quality Monitoring Data
Notes Field
The Notes fields in Screens 3.02 (chemical/physical monitoring) and 3.22 (biological/habitat moni-
toring) allow for the reporting of additional information for each Management Area, by Annual
Report Year.
Chemical and Physical Parameters
Chemical and physical parameter data are to be reported in two ways for the National Monitoring
Program:
•	Raw data are reported in STORFT and listed as an appendix to each annual section 319(h)( 11)
report.
•	Raw data are summarized and reported in count format using NPSMS.
FPA has chosen the above reporting approach for chemical and physical data to:
•	Streamline and standardize data reporting across projects.
•	Provide for quick, national screening analyses for annual reporting of results.
•	Provide raw data as backup for additional statistical analyses.
States are to report monitoring data (by monitored season) in terms of the number of parameter
sample values (up to three digits) falling within each of four pollutant levels that are determined
by using the quartile values (see "Chemical and Physical Parameters" on page 24) for each
chemical/physical parameter monitored at each station (Lowest, Low, High, Highest).16
For example, if the spring quartile values for total phosphorus at the control station in a paired-
watershed study were determined (using historical data for the monitoring season, or using data
from the first year of monitoring) to be .010 mg/L (25%), .020 mg/L (50%), and .100 mg/L (75%),
then (on Screen 3.04):
•	The Highest level would be for sample values that are .100 mg/L or greater,
•	The High level would be for sample values that are from .020 to .099 mg/L,
•	The Low level would be for sample values that are from .010 to .019 mg/L, and
•	The lowest level would be for sample values that are below .010 mg/L.
16 These four levels are ordered by parameter value, not by water quality. For example, the highest total
phosphorus level may be the worst water quality, whereas the highest Secchi Disk level may be the best
water quality. Trend analyses will be structured to account for these differences.
Annual Report File
32

-------
Annual spring monitoring data, then, would be reported as the number of sample values (counts)
that fall into each pollutant level. For example, data from the second year of monitoring at a
control station (20 evenly-spaced samples) might be reported in NPSMS as "10" for Highest, "6"
for High, "3" for L/OW, and "\" for Lowest level (10 + 6 + 3 + 1 = 20 samples, or counts). The
actual phosphorus concentrations for these 20 samples would be reported in STORE!" and listed
in an appendix to the state's annual section 319(h)( 11) report.
All chemical/physical explanatory variables (covariates) used in chemical/physical monitoring plans
are also to be reported using this count format, or frequency table approach. This includes pre-
cipitation and flow data. In the narrative portion of the annual report, states should interpret and
describe how the covariates are related to the principal monitoring parameter(s).
Quartile values determined for each parameter and station must be applied to all monitoring years
for that station. The purpose of using quartile values is to provide for an even distribution of
counts across cells in the frequency table (COUNTS/SEASON on Screen 3.06). Trends will be
detected over time as the distribution of counts changes. For statistical tests such as the Cochran-
Mantel-IIaenszel statistics (e.g., to test the null hypothesis that there is no linear association be-
tween year and total phosphorus level in at least one frequency table stratum), it is important that
the counts for each cell are typically at least five (SAS Institute, Inc., 1985a).
To enter an annual report for chemical and physical monitoring programs, users must select (A)dd
Report from Screen 3.02 of XPS.YIS. By pressing F1 on the highlighted State field, the user is
provided a list of Management Areas for which a chemical/physical monitoring plan has already
been entered into <\PS.\1S.17 After selecting a Management Area from the list provided by pressing
FI, Screen 3.03 is displayed. Users then select Water Qualify Data from Screen 3.03 to display
Screen 3.04, from which chemical physical monitoring data can be entered. The monitoring station
for which data are to be reported is determined by selecting Station from the top bar of Screen 3.04.
The Agency Code, Station Code, and station type (Control Station, Study Station, Upstream Sta-
tion, Downstream Station, Single Station) identify the station. Stations can be selected through the
Station window of Screen 3.05 (or from Screen 3.04 if Station is highlighted) by using the PGUP
and PGDN keys. Agency Code, Station Code, and station type are the same as entered through
Screen 2.06 (see "Monitoring Station Identification" on page 22).
Water quality data for each Station are entered under Screen 3.06 by first selecting Parameters from
the top bar of Screen 3.04. The Station for which data are to be entered is displayed in the Pa-
rameters for: window of Screen 3.06. The chemical/physical parameter for which counts are to be
entered is selected from a pop-up list provided by selecting Add and then pressing FT. The pa-
rameters listed are those that were included in the monitoring plan (see "Chemical and Physical
Parameters" on page 24). The PARAMETER QLARTIEES are displayed for reference. The
counts are then entered for the monitoring season(s) (numbered 1-4; see "Monitoring Year and
Seasons" on page 29). A NO TES field is provided for explanatory comments (up to 68 characters).
Biological and Habitat Parameters
Biological and habitat parameter data are also to be reported in two ways for the National Moni-
toring Program:
•	Raw data are reported in BIOS and listed as an appendix to each annual section 319(h)( 11)
report.
•	Community or index values are reported as scores in NPSMS.
EPA has chosen the above reporting approach for biological and habitat data to:
•	Streamline and standardize data reporting across projects.
•	Provide for quick, national screening analyses for annual reporting of results.
•	Provide raw data as backup for additional analyses.
17 Annual reports cannot be entered unless a monitoring plan has already been entered into NPSMS.

States arc to report the scores for each monitored biological or habitat index parameter by station,
year, and monitoring season. Scores may range from 0 to 999.99.
All biological/habitat explanatory variables (covariates) for biological and habitat monitoring plans
are also to be reported as scores. In the narrative portion of the annual report, states should in-
terpret and describe how the covariates are related to the principal monitoring parameter(s).

tion, Downstream Station, Single Station) identify the station. Stations can be selected through the
Station window of Screen 3.25 (or from Screen 3.24 if Station is highlighted) by using the PGUP
and PGDN keys. Agency Code, Station Code, and station type are the same as entered through
Screen 2.26 (see "Monitoring Station Identification" on page 22).
Water quality data for each Station are entered under Screen 3.26 by first selecting Parameters from
the top bar of Screen 3.24. The Station for which data are to be entered is displayed in the Pa-
rameters for: window of Screen 3.26. The biological habitat parameter for which data are to be
entered is selected from a pop-up list provided by selecting Add and then pressing Fl. l"he pa-
rameters listed are those that were included in the monitoring plan (see "Biological and Habitat
Parameters" on page 25). The INDICES scores that correspond to Fully, Threatened, and Partially
use support (from Screen 2.27) are displayed for reference. The scores (SCORES/VALUES FOR
SFASON) are then entered for the monitoring season(s) (numbered 1-4; see "Monitoring Year and
Seasons" on page 29). A NOTES field is provided for explanatory" comments (up to 68 characters).
To report (under Screen 3.26) chemical physical Explanatory Variable data for a biological habitat
monitoring annual report, users must select Add and then press Fl to display a pop-up list of pa-
rameters that have been included in the monitoring plan. Users then select the chemical physical
Explanatory Variable from the list, causing the display on the Parameters for: window of Screen
3.26 to change for input of the chemical physical data. The Cutoff Values for abnormally high and
abnormally low values of the parameter will be displayed under the Abn. High/Normal and
Normal/Abn. Low fields (see "Biological and Habitat Parameters" on page 25). l;or each season
(SCORES/VALUES FOR SEASON) report "H" for abnormally high values, "N" for normal val-
ues, and "U" for abnormally low values. I,eave the field blank if data are not reported for any given
season.
Explanatory Variables
Annual reporting of explanatory variable data are described above (see "Chemical and Physical
Parameters" on page 32 and "Biological and Habitat Parameters" on page 33). Additional infor-
mation regarding explanatory variables can be found under "Explanatory Variables (Covariates)"
on page 26, "Chemical and Physical Parameters" on page 24, and "Biological and Habitat
Parameters" on page 25. The reporting frequencies for explanatory' variables are given under "Ex-
planatory Variables" on page 28.
Implementation
As stated earlier in this document (see "Purpose and Application" on page 6), implementation goals
can be reported in a number of different ways. Annual implementation is to be reported based
upon the approach selected (see "BMPs" on page 9).
18 Annual reports cannot be entered unless a monitoring plan has already been entered into NPSMS.

-------
For example, in cases where the state decides to report only overall Implementation Goals for the
Management Area, the annual implementation is to be reported under: (1) the study watershed in
paired studies, (2) the drainage area between stations in upstream-downstream studies, or (3) the
drainage area above the single station in single-station studies. If Implementation Goals are estab-
lished for each monitoring station drainage area, then implementation is reported under each sta-
tion.
As stated earlier (see "Purpose and Application" on page 6), implementation of BMPs and control
measures is not expected in the control watersheds of paired studies or in the upstream area of
upstream-downstream studies. Often, however, things happen in the control watersheds in
paired-watershed studies and in the areas upstream of upstream-downstream study areas that could
affect the interpretation of water quality data that are collected. For this reason, it is important to
track activities and control measure implementation in these control and upstream areas. The
XPSX1S software provides for the reporting of implementation and other activities above each
monitoring station for paired-watershed, upstream-downstream, and single-station studies.
Paired Studies
The study watershed in paired studies is the watershed for which implementation is planned. It is
expected that essentially no change in activities, land use, or land management will occur in the
control watershed during the course of the study. The importance of land use and other factors as
they relate to paired-watershed studies is discussed in more detail under "Paired-Watershed Study
Design" on page 19.
If, however, implementation of control practices does occur in the control watershed of a paired
study, it is important to report that information. States are to report practice information for
control watersheds in the same manner as for study watersheds, with the exception that there will
be no reporting of implementation goals.
In some cases, there may be land use or other significant changes in the control watershed that
cannot be reported as practice implementation. I^and use changes can be tracked for each moni-
toring station drainage area by reporting the Year, Land Use, and Percentage of Drainage Area
under either Screen 2.06 for chemical/physical monitoring plans or Screen 2.26 for
biological habitat monitoring plans. The NOTES field under Screen 3.09 (chemical physical) or
Screen 3.29 (biological/habitat) can be used to describe in narrative form other significant changes
or occurrences in the control watershed that may have an impact on the paired study results.
Upstream-Downstream Studies
The drainage area between the two monitoring stations in upstream-downstream studies is the area
for which implementation is planned. It is expected that essentially no change in activities, land
use, or land management will occur in the drainage area upstream from the upstream station during
the course of the study.
If, however, implementation of control practices does occur in the area upstream from the upstream
station, it is important to report that information. States are to report practice information for
upstream areas in the same manner as for the study area between monitoring stations, with the
exception that there will be no reporting of implementation goals.
In some cases, there may be land use or other significant changes in the upstream area that cannot
be reported as practice implementation. I^and use changes can be tracked for each monitoring
station drainage area by reporting the Year, Land Use, and Percentage of Drainage Area under ei-
ther Screen 2.06 for chemical/physical monitoring plans or Screen 2.26 for biological/habitat mon-
itoring plans. The NOTES field under Screen 3.09 (chemical/physical) or Screen 3.29
(biological/habitat) can be used to describe in narrative form other significant changes or occur-
rences in the upstream watershed that may have an impact on the upstream-downstream study re-
sults.

Reporting Implementation
Annual implementation tracking is required for each control measure listed in the Management File
(see "Best Management Practices and NPS Control Measures" on page 8). Implementation data
are reported in the same manner for both chemical/physical and biological/habitat monitoring
programs, but different Screens of NPSMS are used. ITie first step is to select Implementation Data
from either Screen 3.03 (chemical/physical monitoring) or Screen 3.23 (biological/habitat monitor-
ing). This selection displays Screen 3.07 for chemical/physical monitoring or Screen 3.27 for
biological/habitat monitoring. The following steps and information apply to both Screen 3.07 and
Screen 3.27, and are keyed to the various options for reporting BMP Implementation Goals and
annual implementation (see "BMPs" on page 9).
BMPs and Control Measures
Overall Implementation Goals: It is important to note that implementation toward achieving the
goals for projects under this scenario is to be reported under the study station in paired-watershed
studies, under the downstream station in upstream-downstream studies, or under the single station
for single-station studies. If there are two monitoring programs in the Management Area, then
users may report implementation under the chemical/physical or the biological/habitat program.
Station-Specific Implementation Goals: Users may wish to set BMP Implementation Coals for each
monitoring station drainage area in a project that has either one or two monitoring programs. If
both a chemical/physical and biological/habitat monitoring program are used in a Management
Area, then users may wish to identify implementation goals for each monitoring plan that are dif-
ferent from each other. For example, a Management Area may have a chemical/physical paired-
study and a biological/habitat upstream-downstream study (seeFigure 3 on page 13). The drainage
areas for the study watershed in the paired study and for the downstream station in the upstream-
downstream study may be different, creating a likelihood that the implementation goals for the two
different monitoring efforts may be different as well. iSPSMS allows users to report separate im-
plementation goals (for the study, downstream, or single stations, depending upon the monitoring
design selected) for chemical/physical and biological/habitat monitoring programs in the same
Management Area. Alternatively, if only one monitoring program exists in the Management Area,
users may still wish to report station-specific implementation data to allow for better opportunities
to link implementation to water quality.
Data Entry: The State (2-character FIPS code), NPS Management Area ID (M/A), Waterbody
ID (VV/B), monitoring approach (CHEM/PHYS or BIO/HABI), Monitoring Design Plan, and
annual report year (Year) will be displayed below the top bar of Screen 3.07 and Screen 3.27 to
identify the project and year for which implementation data are entered. The Station is then se-
lected (PGUP and PGDN keys) to identify the drainage area within the project for which the im-
plementation data will apply. Drainage areas are uniquely identified by a combination of
Monitoring Design Plan and Station. For example, to report the implementation in the study
watershed in a paired study, the Station should be "Study Station" and the Monitoring Design Plan
should be "Paired." This information defines the drainage area as that drainage above the study
watershed monitoring station.
Once the Station is selected, users can add implementation data by selecting B.\lP/Cntrl Measures
from the top bar of Screen 3.07 or Screen 3.27. This action will display Screen 3.09
(chemical/physical) or Screen 3.29 (biological/habitat), from which the user can Add BMPs or
control measures (BMP Name) that were implemented. A pop-up List of those BMPS and control
measures included in the Management File (see "BMPs" on page 9) is displayed for use if FI is
pressed when BMP Name is highlighted in the BMP/Control Measures for: window. Once selected
from the list, the BMP Name, Reporting Units, BMP Type, Coal For, and Implementation Coal
will be displayed. Implementation Coal and Coal For will not be displayed for upstream areas in
upstream-downstream studies or for control watersheds in paired studies since such goals are not
established.
In Management Areas where both a chemical/physical and a biological/habitat monitoring program
exist, users may wish to specify a distinct Implementation Goal for each of the two monitoring
programs. This is done by entering "S* (for Station-specific Implementation Goal) in the Goal For
field, and then changing the Implementation Goal. The default value for Implementation Goal is
Annual Report File
36

-------
the value entered under Screen 1.21 (see "BMPs" on page 9), and the default value for Goal For
is "M" (for Management Area Implementation Goal). The changed Implementation Goal will be
specific to the monitoring Station (a study, downstream, or single station) displayed, and the user
is then expected to report Station-specific Implementation This Year data. Please note that if the
Implementation Goal is kept as the goal for the entire Management Area (i.e., Goal For is "M"),
then the value for the goal cannot be changed.
The number of units implemented (i.e., on the ground) during the monitoring year is reported under
Implementation This Year. The BMP Type indicates whether the implementation is an annual
value (e.g., conservation tillage acreage) or a cumulative value (e.g., number of wet ponds).
Sources: The Sources controlled through implementation of each BMP are reported from Screen
3.10 (chemical/physical) or Screen 3.30 (biological/habitat), which are displayed by selecting Cntrl
Sources from Screen 3.07 or Screen 3.27, respectively. From Screen 3.10 or Screen 3.30, users can
select Add and then press Fl to access a pop-up List of those sources (from Screen 1.22 of the
Management File) that can be selected from for entry as Source Name. For each BMP Name re-
ported, multiple sources (Source Name) can be reported. Report as many sources (Source Name)
controlled as necessary to document implementation activities for the year.
Pollutants: 1'he Pollutants controlled for each Source Name controlled through implementation
of each BMP are reported from Screen 3.11 (physical/chemical) or Screen 3.31 (biological/habitat),
which are displayed by selecting Pollutants from Screen 3.07 or Screen 3.27, respectively. From
Screen 3.11 or Screen 3.31, users can select Add and then press Fl to access a pop-up list of those
pollutants (from Screen 1.23 of the Management File) that can be selected from for entry as
Pollutant Name. Report as many pollutants (Pollutant Name) controlled as necessary to document
implementation activities for the year. For each BMP Name reported, multiple Sources can be
reported, and multiple Pollutants can be reported for each Source. For example, animal waste
management (BMP Name) implementation to control livestock operations (Source Name) could
be reported as:
•	300 (Implementation This Year) "animal units controlled" (Reporting Units) were implemented
•	bacteria and nutrients (Pollutant Name) were controlled
As another example, the implementation plan could have called for the installation of sediment
basins to control sediment from construction sites, cropland, and surface mining. Annual reporting
of the sediment basins (BMP Name) to control sediment (Pollutant Name) could be reported as:
•	25 (Implementation This Year) "sediment basins" (Reporting Units) were installed
•	construction and cropland (Sources) were controlled19
The NO TES field under Screen 3.09 (chemical/physical) or Screen 3.29 (biological/habitat) can "and
should be used to further characterize the implementation and the water quality impacts (best
professional judgment is suitable) that were anticipated as the result of such implementation. As
described above, land use changes, significant incidents, and other important happenings should
also be reported.
Failures in control measure maintenance can be addressed in either of two ways:
•	For annual practices, report only the implementation that is adequately maintained. For ex-
ample, if 1,000 acres of conservation tillage are implemented, but 200 acres are not managed
properly, then report only 800 acres implemented.
•	For cumulative practices, report only the units that are adequately maintained. For example,
if 10 wet ponds were installed in 1990, 5 more were installed in 1991, but 3 ponds from 1990
were not adequately maintained, then:
ฆ Report 10 wet ponds for 1990.
19 In this example, no sediment basins for surface mining were installed during this reporting year. In other
words, not all pollutants or sources need to be reported every year; just report what was installed, the
sources that were controlled, and the pollutants that were controlled.

Version 3.0 - August 1991
Manual Data Entry Forms
INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETING DATA ENTRY FORMS:
The manual data entry forms are provided to assist users that wish to use the NPSMS but do not havt
the necessary hardware.
When the data entry forms have been entered, they should be forwarded to the NPS Regiona
Coordinator or to the EPA headquarters where they will be entered into the NPSMS software.
Each question on the data entry form has a number in the parenthesis. That number tells how lonj
each answer can be which corresponds to the software. Additionally, there are several questions tha
require a valid name or code. This information is printed inside brackets with messages such a:
"[Refer to List 1]." This message indicates that the value to be entered is a value from "List 1." There
are several "Lists" to assist you which contain standard names, codes, and definitions. When an entn
calls for a value from a "List" you should use the list or enter your own value. The "Lists" are locatec
in the Appendices of the NPSMS User's Guide under "Standard Tables."
Use the forms to complete each entry and make as many copies of each form as necessary. Eacl
Management Area should have one complete set of forms. Form 10 should be competed twice if yoi
are performing BOTH Chemical/Physical AND Biological/Habitat parameters. Forms 13 through 1'
should be completed for each Annual Report submitted. Use Form 14a to report Chemical/Physica
water quality parameters and Form 14b to report Biological/Habitat parameters.

1. INTRODUCTION
The Nonpoint Source Management System (NPSMS) is a PC based software application
developed to facilitate data input to the NPS Management File and provide reporting
capabilities to support the NPS Annual Report File.
The software is used by states receiving grants under section 319 of the Clean Water Act.
It is based upon requirements as described by the U.S. EPA's "Watershed Monitoring and
Reporting for Section 319 National Monitoring Program Projects," August, 1991.
The NPSMS version 2.1 software is an integrated, menu-driven environment supporting
both file management and annual reporting for chemical/physical data. It provided many
advanced features including pop-up menus, look-up tables for data entry, configurable
environment, on-screen reports, and on-line help.
The most current version of the NPSMS, version 3.0 includes many enhanced features of
version 2.1. The most significant enhancement is the ability to track biological and habitat
data as well as the chemical/physical data that version 2.1 tracked. Other features include
improved user interface, pop-up note fields, automated transfer of Annual Reports, and
graphic capabilities.
This document is a general guide on how to use the NPSMS version 3.0. For information
and guidance on the actual data requirements, consult the document, "Watershed
Monitoring and Reporting for Section 319 National Monitoring Program Projects," August,
1991.

5. MONITORING PLAN FILE
The Monitoring Plan File contains information pertaining to the type of study that will be
implemented to monitor the specified management area/waterbody. This includes the
monitoring design, station identification, monitoring year and seasons, drainage area, land
use, and the parameters that will be monitored at each station.
The Monitoring Plan File is organized by chemical/physical and biological/habitat data. The
monitoring plan is entered only one time for a particular management area and should not
be changed after the initial entry. Although only one monitoring plan may be entered for
each management area, a separate plan may be setup for chemical/physical data AND
biological/habitat data.
Selecting DESIGN from the Main Menu (Screen 0.00) will display Screen 2.01 (see Figure
5-1). This screen allows the user to choose either CHEMICAL/PHYSICAL monitoring or
BIOLOGICAL/HABITAT monitoring.

6. ANNUAL REPORT FILE
The Annual Report File provides the capabilities to maintain the annual reports that must
be submitted to EPA as required under the Nonpoint Source Program. Annual reports may
be entered for each management area/waterbody for every year. Both chemical/physical
and biological/habitat data can be added for a particular management area/waterbody.
When monitoring is complete for the year, the results for each parameter are entered in the
annual report. Additionally, the progress of the best management practice (BMP)
implementation is also reported. When the annual report is completed for a specific year,
the NPSMS software provides the ability to export the annual report and other information
to diskette so it may be sent to EPA.
Selecting ANNUAL from the Main Menu (Screen 0.00) will display Screen 3.01 (see Figure
6-1). This screen allows the user to choose either CHEMICAL/PHYSICAL data or
BIOLOGICAL/HABITAT data.

There are seven reports available to the user. Each of these reports is described in the
following sections.
7.1	PROBLEM ASSESSMENT
The Problem Assessment Report lists the problem pollutants lor the selected management
areas. Additionally, the contribution sources which include the NPS, point, and background
are also listed. The report is sorted by state, management area, and waterbody.
7.2	IMPLEMENTATION PLAN
The Implementation Plan Summary lists information about the best management practices
(BMP) for the selected management areas. Each BMP, controlled source, pollutant, and
impaired use is listed. The report is sorted by state, management area, waterbody, and
BMP ID.
7.3	MONITORING STATIONS
The Monitoring Stations Summary lists information about the study stations for the selected
management areas. The information includes the monitoring design, the station
identification code, station type, and drainage area. The report lists information for
chemical/physical and biological/habitat data. The Monitoring Stations Summary is sorted

8. GRAPHICS
The NPSMS software provides the capabilities to generate sophisticated graphs and charts
to better interpret and analyze the large volume of data entered into the system. All of the
graphic functions are available under the GRAPHICS option on the main menu.
The NPSMS graphics generate high-resolution EGA and VGA graphs and take full
advantage of the video equipment installed on a particular computer. The only requirement
for running graphics is that an EGA or VGA video adaptor/monitor must be installed on
the computer.
In addition to displaying graphics on the monitor, the NPSMS Graphics Module is also
capable of printing the graph to several different printer devices including laser printers,
dot-matrix printers, plotters, and HP PaintJets. The printer drivers can take full advantage
of features on the printer such as printer density, portrait/landscape orientation, and plotter
pen colors. Graphic images may also be stored in a file on the hard disk for later use.
Selecting GRAPHICS from the Main Menu (Screen 0.00) will display a "processing"
message while the Graphics Module is being loaded. After the module is loaded, Screen
5.01 (see Figure 8-1) will be displayed.
