Water quality specialists recognize that agriculture continues to be the single largest source of nonpoint source pollution (NPS) problems in the nation. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has responded by assigning water quality a high priority in their programs. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is developing NPS programs under the provisions of section 319 of the Clean Water Act and likewise considers it a high priority. Improving the quality of this nation's waters will take time, particularly because NPS is such a pervasive problem.
