The NPS policy requires each state to assess its water pollution and determine which water bodies fail to meet the water quality objectives because of NPS pollution [Section 319(a)]. The state is then to develop a state management plan and implementation measures to reduce the pollutants [Section 319(b)]. The states have primary control over the NPS program and are authorized under Section 3 19(h) to use funds from state revolving fund loans for statewide NPS management plans, and for programs to protect ground water from NPS pollution as well [Section 3 19(1)] (WEF and Kovalic, 1993).
