2017 Nonpoint Source Program Report Now Available

The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality is pleased to announce that its 2017 Nonpoint Source Program report is now available.  The Nonpoint Source Program is part of the Watershed Protection Program within the Water Quality Division.  It manages federal Clean Water Act Section 319 grant funds provided by the Environmental Protection Agency to Wyoming to help local sponsors implement voluntary projects that reduce nonpoint source pollution and protect the quality of our streams, rivers, lakes and ground water.  Nonpoint source pollution occurs when surface water runoff from rainfall or snowmelt travels over and/or percolates through the ground and picks up contaminants, ultimately depositing them in surface waterbodies or ground water aquifers. The report provides a summary of the activities and accomplishments of the Nonpoint Source Program for 2017 and is intended to help educate the public about nonpoint source pollution in Wyoming and actions being taken to address it at local, state, and federal levels.

The report can be accessed at: http://deq.wyoming.gov/wqd/non-point-source/resources/reports/.
