1) Handbook for Developing Watershed Plans to Restore and Protect Our Waters from EPA's Office of Water is a guide to watershed planning and management to help various organizations develop and implement watershed plans. Audience is communities, watershed groups, and local, state, tribal, and federal environmental agencies. The 414-page handbook is intended to supplement existing watershed planning guides that have been developed by agencies, universities, and other nonprofit organizations. It’s more specific than other guides about quantifying existing pollutant loads, developing estimates of the load reductions required to meet water-quality standards, developing effective management measures, and tracking progress once the plan is implemented. Find it online: http://www.epa.gov/owow/nps/watershed_handbook or order a free copy from the National Service Center for Environmental Publications by calling 800-490-9198 or e-mail: email@example.com, mentioning EPA document number EPA 841-B-05-005.
2) Three Management Measures Handbooks: Urban Area, Forestry, and Wetlands and Riparian Areas. http://www.epa.gov/owow/nps/categories.html. These major technical documents discuss control of nonpoint source pollution.
