are not reporting the same practices. When in doubt, the conservative choice has been made.

6)    Does the non-point source practice and program implementation data include a practice/credit life? What is the process for removing practices from the tracking systems once they have expired, are out of date, are not functioning as designed, or no longer exist?

No information provided.

7)    What practices may be underreported?

Non-cost shared BMPs.

Strengths and Weaknesses

•      WV relies upon staff-intensive data collection methods for some data collection (e.g., calling agencies to get data on septic systems installed or numbers of systems pumped). They lack the web-interfaces to facilitate easier data reporting.

•      The NRCS database was not designed with CBP reporting needs in mind and could be improved to ease BMP reporting.
