dc.descriptionProceedings of the 1999 Georgia Water Resources Conference, March 30 and 31, Athens, Georgia.en_US
dc.description.abstractRecently agricultural activities have become the target of perceptions, or some might say misperceptions. Agriculture is often portrayed as the country's most significant contributor of non-point source [NPS] pollution. Georgia's agricultural community is attempting to use recent debates over proposed swine facilities and confined animal feeding operations as an opportunity to increase partnerships between, and within, natural resource management individuals, groups, and agencies across the State. One aspect of this cooperative effort has been the development of a methodology for assessing agricultural contributions to water quality impairments, which is introduced. While agricultural operations can represent a potential environmental threat, the results of applying this methodology, to date, suggest that individuals, groups, and agencies assessing the source of water quality impairments in watersheds where agriculture exists should consider four foundational characteristics before quantifying agricultural non-point source pollution.en_US
