2008 Mid-Atlantic  States Annual Nonpoint
                               Source Program Highlights
In 1987, Congress established the Nonpoint Source
(NFS) Pollution Management Program under Section 319
of the Clean Water Act (CWA). This program provides
states with technical assistance and grant funding,
through the EPA, to implement NPS pollution controls to
achieve goals that protect, improve and restore water
quality as described in the State's NPS pollution manage-
ment program plans. Annual Nonpoint Source (NPS) Re-
ports are submitted from the states in response to Section
319(h)(8) and (11) of the  Clear Water Act (33 USC

The chart above shows the combined federal and state
funding amounts for the national NPS program efforts
through 2008. The total amount of federal funds that have
been allocated to NPS program efforts since that time has
been approximately 3.0 billion dollars.
The above chart shows the total Regional allocation of
federal funds has been 238 million for NPS program ef-
forts with a state match of 158 million for a total regional
Program of 396 million.  The final allocation for FY
2009 is 16.8 million dollars.

While this work plan will highlight efforts that will cul-
minate successes of 2008 NPS program efforts, it is im-
portant to acknowledge that these actions were made pos-
sible only as a result of the continued funding over the
past 20 years; ensuring the promise of continued funding
towards our NPS efforts is crucial to building our pro-
grams to meet the continued challenges of addressing
NPS issues in the future.

run by the Watershed Protection Division, under the Of-
fice of Natural Resources within the District Department
of the Environment (DDOE). The Nonpoint Source Pro-
gram was formed to address the control and prevention of
nonpoint source pollution impacting the District's surface
and ground waters.

Program goals include:

•   Support activities that reduce pollutant loads from
 urban runoff, construction activity, combined sewer
 overflows and trash disposal.
•   Support programs and activities that strive to restore
and maintain healthy natural habitat, species diversity
and necessary base flow to all of the Anacostia River.
•   Coordinate the District Nonpoint Source Program
efforts with other agencies to deliver the best possible
nonpoint source pollution prevention.
•   Carry out effective information and education cam-
paigns on nonpoint source pollution prevention.

The Maryland Department of Environment (MDE) coor-
dinates the state's NPS program. The MDE plays a lead
role in helping to achieve protection and improvement of
Maryland's water quality by promoting and funding state
and local efforts, water quality monitoring, stream and
wetland restoration, education and outreach, and other
measures to reduce and track nonpoint source. Several
other state agencies have key responsibilities, including
the Departments of Natural Resources (DNR), Agricul-
ture (MDA), and Planning (MDP).

In calendar year 2008, there have been notable successes
and accomplishments:

•   Projects funded by 319(h) Grant reported imple-
menting 291 best management practices resulting in pol-
lutant load reductions: nitrogen 100,000 pounds/year;
phosphorus 8,500 pounds/year; sediment 844 tons/year.
(Figures include technical assistance projects.)
•   EPA accepted four watershed plans, which makes
these areas eligible for 319(h) Grant implementation

•   Phosphorus: 8,500 pounds
•   Sediment: 844 tons

Project Highlights :

Aaron Run Watershed
Low pH values in Aaron Run ranging from 3.3-4.0 are
causing elevated metals concentrations and biotic integ-
rity ranging from poor to very poor. This multi-year pro-
ject is: 1) installing passive acid mine drainage treatment
technologies and 2) reclaiming  10 acres of abandoned
surface mine land along the mainstream of Aaron Run.
Implementation began in 2008 and completion is pro-
jected for 2010.  The project goals include elimination
listed impairments and allowing for return of native trout
to their historic range in the Aaron Run watershed.

Agricultural Technical Assistance
In 2008, priority watersheds are continuing to receive 319
(h) Grant assistance including Antietam River, Corsica
River, Deer Creek, Liberty Reservoir, Marshyhope
Creek/Nanticoke River and Upper Choptank River. To-
gether, these technical assistance projects account  for the
majority of the sediment, phosphorus and nitrogen reduc-
tions reported for Maryland 319(h) Grant-funded projects

Bennett Creek Watershed
In the Bennett
Creek watershed
within the Mono-
cacy River water-
shed, Frederick
County is employ-
ing 319(h) Grant
funds to help sup-
port several pro-
jects to institution-
alize a wetland
assessment/monitoring program and to implement at least
four wetland restoration projects.  Collectively, currently
envisioned projects are slated to run from October 2006
through June 2010 with implementation in 2009-2010.

Corsica River Watershed
The Corsica River watershed continues to be a Maryland
focus area since its 2005 beginning. Implementation
monitoring by two 319(h) Grant-funded projects in the
Corsica watershed focused on 1) water quality results of
implementing cover crops and stormwater BMPs,  2) liv-
ing resources, 3) ambient stormwater water quality, and
4) measuring affects of applying nitrogen removal tech-
nology to on-site sewage treatment (septic) systems.
2008 accomplishments include:

- Creation of the local Environmental Advisory Council
- The town adopted ordinances to maintain tree canopy
and to control of pet waste.
- Implementation project planning/design has been com-
pleted so that construction can begin in 2009.
- Centreville Outreach/Education progress in 2008 in-
cluded: 1) updating the Corsica River watershed website,
creating TV ad and presentations for use at meetings/
events, and conducted interviews with local radio  stations
and newspapers (see www.corsicariver.org ); 2) celebrat-
ing Corsica River Awareness Day September 20; 3) con-
ducting a survey in December 2008 of citizen awareness
and understanding of local nonpoint issues and the pro-
gram to address them.

Implementation Tracking for Nonpoint Source Man-
In Maryland, 319(h) Grant funds help support tacking of
NFS implementation projects that protect or restore water
bodies. Hundreds of urban/suburban NFS BMPs and
thousands of agricultural BMPs are implemented each
year. Implementation information is collected by  coun-
ties, municipalities, state agencies and soil conservation
districts.  In cooperation with these entities, the 319(h)
Grant-funded projects in MDE assemble, standardize and
report collective information to users including the
Chesapeake Bay Program.


The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protec-
tion's (DEP) Bureau of Watershed Management adminis-
ters the State's Nonpoint Source Management Program.
During FFY2008, DEP completed an update of its NPS
Program Plan with assistance from the Nonpoint Source
Liaison Work Group, which has for many years provided
advice and input to the program. Membership on the
Work Group includes environmental professionals and
representatives from local, state and federal government,
academia, private sector consultants, non-profit organiza-
tions and other interested parties.

Program goals include:
•   Improve and protect water resources as a result of
nonpoint source program implementation efforts.
•   Support local groups in the development and imple-
mentation of 34 NPS priority watershed restoration plans.
•   Improve and develop monitoring efforts.
•   Encourage development and use of new technologies
for addressing nonpoint source pollution.
•   Assure implementation of appropriate best manage-
ment practices.

Two additional streams were determined to be fully re-
stored in FFY 2008, partial restoration was documented
in eight streams and significant improvements were iden-
tified in nineteen others.

                            - In 2008, GreenTreks
                            released Stormwater PA
                            to assist decision-makers
                            with  a tool to use for
                            flood protection and pre-
                            vention. The program has
                            proven successful and has
                            secured funding for the
next stage of development. It will be expanding across
the Commonwealth in the future.
- The PennDOT Smart Transportation initiative and the
planned use of compost filter blankets, filter berms, and/
or filter socks at selected road and highway projects and
at stockpile and garage facilities are promoting use of
environmentally-sensitive site design techniques.

Approximately 43.9 miles of streams were opened for the
passage offish and other aquatic organisms, as reported
by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission.

Resource Extraction
- 25 Growing Greener Pro-
jects were completed from
10/07 to 9/08
Watersheds once impaired
by AMD that are now meet-
ing designated uses:
- Step Run, Clarion County, 5.0 miles
- Semiconon Run, Butler County, 9.6 miles
- Gilmore Run, Venango County, 5.4 miles.

TreeVitalize, a program launched in Pennsylvania,
planted more than 20,000 shade trees and added 1,000
acres of forested riparian buffers in Bucks, Chester, Dela-
ware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties.

The adoption of unique dissolved oxygen and tempera-
ture standards for lakes, different from those for streams,
resulted in the reclassification of 34,060 lake acres from
impaired status to meeting aquatic uses.

Land Disposal
The Chemsweep Program collected 103,048 pounds of
pesticides during 2008, well above the 1999-2007 aver-
age of 97,403 pounds per year.  Of this total, 29,514
pounds were collected at nine Chemsweep/Household
Hazardous Waste partnership events, averaging 3,279
pounds per event.

Total Maximum Daily Load Program
In 2008 Virginia
developed 12
plans covering
36 impairments.
Since 2000, Vir-
ginia has com-
pleted 36
TMDL imple-
mentation plans
addressing 100
impaired stream segments and over 128 impairments.
Currently Virginia is working on the development of an
additional 16 implementation plans addressing 45 im-
paired stream segments.

During 2008, there were 11 active  §319(h) funded imple-
mentation projects. Collectively these projects imple-
mented  349 agricultural and residential Best Management
Practices (BMPs) that resulted in the reduction of:
- 1.27E+16 colony forming units (CPU) of fecal coliform
- 3,7684 pounds of nitrogen.
- 871 pounds of phosphorous.
- 341 tons of sediment.
In July 2006, 17 state funded TMDL implementation pro-
jects were started. Through June, 2008 these projects im-
plemented 161 agricultural BMPs that resulted in the fol-
lowing 'edge-of-field' pollution reductions:
- 300,221  Ibs/year nitrogen.
- 59,619 Ibs/year phosphorous.
- 55,188 tons of sediment.

Water Quality Improvements :

Agricultural Efforts
Virginia has reduced its pollution loadings to the Chesa-
peake Bay significantly. Between 1985 and 2007,
Virginia has reduced nitrogen loadings by 18.4 million
pounds/year (MPY), phosphorous loadings by 4.57 MPY,
and sediment loadings by 480 tons per year.

Land Conservation  & Preservation Efforts
Land conservation and preservation has been a major en-
deavor.  Protecting land, particularly riparian lands, is a

critical element of Virginia's Chesapeake Bay Tribu-
tary Strategies and will help restore and protect waters.
From FY2001-FY2006 an average of 56,000 acres per
year had been protected. In 2006 the Commonwealth
set an ambitious goal of protecting 400,000 acres by
2010. From July 1, 2007 through November 30, 2008,
approximately 89,283.23 acres were protected state-
wide, due largely to donations made by landowners
seeking to take advantage of generous tax incentives.
As of June 2008, approximately 250,810 acres have
been protected (or 63% of the original goal) since 2006.

Total Maximum Daily Load Program Case Studies
Analysis of TMDL Implementation Project water qual-
ity data show that five projects that have received state
and federal funding are now attaining water quality
standards with bacteria violation rates below 10.5% for
the 235 CFU/100 ml standard. As a result, in Virginia's
2008 303(d)/305(b) Integrated Report these five stream
segements were listed as candidates for delisting. These
five segments include: Willis River,  Buckingham and
Cumberland Counties, 16.68 miles; Big Otter River,
Bedford and Campbell Counties, 13.98 miles; Mag-
godee Creek, Franklin County, 4.40 miles; Stroubles
Creek Middle,Montgomery County,  2.20 miles; Deep
Creek, Nottoway County, 5.59 miles; and Lynnhaven
River in the City of Virginia Beach., 1,462 acres.

Project Highlights :

Shellfish Beds in the Lvnnhaven
In November 2007 State Health Commissioner Robert
B. Stroube of the Virginia Department of Health lifted
the shellfish condemnation of 1,462 acres within Lynn-
haven River, Broad Bay,  and Linkhorn Bays of Vir-
ginia Beach. These waterbodies are now fully attaining
their designated shellfishing use for which the water-
sheds were condemned in 1998. The dedicated efforts
of the City of Virginia Beach and its partners improved
the water quality conditions  have to the point that these
waters are now achieving the bacteria standard for
shellfish waters and will be candidates for delisting on
the 2010 303(d) list of impaired waters.

Valzinco Mine Orphaned Land Project
In 2008 the Valzinco Sulfide Mine Reclamation Project
was recognized by EPA with a Success Story. This or-
phaned mine land reclamation project was implemented to
abate acid mine drainage (AMD) sulfide mine in Spotsylva-
nia County, Virginia on Knights Branch. Following recla-

tions natural for the Virginia Piedmont (>5.0) and dissolved
metal concentrations fell by 75-99.5%


The Non-point Source Program (NPSP) supports the efforts
of three West Virginia state agencies to reduce non-point
source  pollution from various land use activities; West Vir-
ginia Department of Environmental Protection, West Vir-
ginia Conservation Agency and the Division of Health and
Human Services. The programs' goals are to:

•   Provide technical assistance in the proper installation
and maintenance of best management practices (BMPs)
•   Educate the public and land users on non-point source
•   Support citizen based watershed organizations
•   Support enforcement of non-point source water quality
•   Restore impaired watersheds

Accomplishments of Fiscal Year 2008
In 2008 there were 32 active major incremental projects in
various stages of implementation and six in development.
There were also nine minor projects funded from base grant
funds as Announcement of Grant Opportunity (AGOs),
four WBPs approved and three more in development.

Project Highlights :

Middle Fork of Greens Run
This project completed in September 2008 is  attempting to
neutralize the acidity and raise alkalinity and  pH precipitat-
ing the iron and aluminum and collect the metals before
they precipitate into  the Middle Fork of Greens Run.

North  Fork of the Blackwater River, Long Run
The Abandoned Mine Land Program (AML)  repaired the
damaged section  of the  19' Fabriform channel with grouted
riprap and installed eight steel slag filled gabion baskets in
the lower reaches of the undamaged section of this same
channel for water treatment.

Lost River I
The project stabilized and protected 1500 linear feet of
stream  banks involving  10.5 acres. The estimated reduction
of sediment after vegetation is established is 3387 tons/

                                                    Stream Bank Restoration
Lambert Run
Two AMD treatment projects were completed in Lambert
Run.  Both project use baffled aerobic wetlands to treat   Burroughs Run
acid and remove metals.  Site 9 became the first 319 pro-
ject to use mitigation funding as a match for construction
of a project.

Activity Highlights
The West Virginia Save Our Streams (WVSOS)
The program served 442 more participants compared to
the same period last year.  Total number of events includ-
ing workshops and presentations during this period were
36 with 2056 people attending. The program continues to
be actively involved in a variety of special projects and
programs. Programs include:
•   Potomac Stream Samplers
•   Spring Run Project
•   Northfork of Elkhorn Creek Proj ect

wide over 1600 people participated in WRC events.


The Upper Elk Watershed Protection Plan
Upper Elk River watershed is home to two trout catch
and release sections but is under heavy pressure from
development. A $10,000 319 planning grant started the
process of developing a watershed protection plan. A
$10,000 matching grant was secured from National
Audubon Society's Together Green program to fund a
series of meetings in late 2008 and  early 2009, which will
allow local stakeholders to develop a joint vision for the

A 1,470 sq. ft rain garden was installed in the parking
area of the Kilmer Springs water filtration plant in spring

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore Rain Garden
Habitat for Humanity received a 319 AGO grant to de-
velop a 697 square foot rain garden in the parking lot of
their store in Charleston.  Completed in June 2008 the
garden serves as the primary storm water runoff spot for
a 1,000 square foot paved parking lot.
