Non-point source (NPS) pollution is water pollution that originates from diffuse sources. The goal of this project was to develop recommendations for improvement of the management of NPS pollution in Massachusetts. Through nationwide case studies, informant interviews, and archival research we identified problems in current management strategies. Based on our findings, we recommended multiple policy changes, including coordination of statewide NPS pollution data collection efforts, research into distribution of grant funding, and research into effective public education programs.
