Downloadable. The limited success of command-and-control policies for reducing nonpoint source (NPS) water pollution mandated under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (FWPCA) has prompted increased interest in economic incentive policies as an alternative control mechanism.

No single policy, however, is likely to be effective in reducing all NPS by: Request PDF | Economic Incentives for Agricultural Nonpoint Source Pollution and Control | The limited success of command-and-control policies for reducing nonpoint source (NPS) water pollution.

ABSTRACT. The limited success of command‐and‐control policies for reducing nonpoint source (NPS) water pollution mandated under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (FWPCA) has prompted increased interest in economic incentive policies as an alternative control by: Agriculture is a major source of several nonpoint-source pollutants, including nutrients, sediment, pesticides, and salts.

Agricultural nonpoint pollution reduction policies can be designed to induce producers to change their production practices in ways that improve the environmental and related economic consequences of production.

2. Agricultural nonpoint source policy literature review. The agricultural NPS pollution policy literature is generally small and comprised predominantly of theoretical models. The few studies that analyse agricultural NPS policies as implemented do so using cases from outside of the United States, primarily in the by: Keywords: Economic Analysis, Nonpoint Source Pollution, Economic Incentives, Marketable Permits and Trading.

Abstract: This document contains the proceedings for the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists Workshop held in Lexington, Kentucky in Junewhich focused on management of nonpoint-source pollution control.

Nonpoint source (NPS) water pollution regulations are environmental regulations that restrict or limit water pollution from diffuse or nonpoint effluent sources such as polluted runoff from agricultural areas in a river catchments or wind-borne debris blowing out to sea.

In the United States, governments have taken a number of legal and regulatory approaches to controlling NPS effluent.

Non-point source (NPS) pollution has been increasingly serious in China since the s. The increases of agricultural NPS pollution in China is evaluated for the period − by surveying the literature on water and soil pollution from fertilizers and pesticides, and assessing the surplus nitrogen balance within provinces.

Special Book Collections agricultural nonpoint sources article then discusses some practical approaches for agricultural nonpoint sources pollution control in terms of China’s current economic development levels and article concludes that voluntary programs, command and control programs and economic incentive.

Introduction. Poor water quality, and in particular excess nitrogen (N) and phosphorus loadings, is an international problem for reasons that include human population growth, the expansion of industrial and agricultural activities, and climate change [1,2].In the United States (US), through the Clean Water Act and the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program.

The National Water Quality Assessment shows that agricultural nonpoint source (NPS) pollution is the leading source of water quality impacts on surveyed rivers and streams, the third largest source for lakes, the second largest source of impairments to wetlands, and a major contributor to contamination of surveyed estuaries and ground water.

of Agriculture, Economic Research. Potential earnings from permits sales may provide an incentive for farmers to accept water quality regulation.

We derive optimal adjustments of point/nonpoint effluent trading ratios for heterogeneity in marginal environmental damage and degradation/retention of the pollutant across. In this article, the author talk about the impacts of the Agricultural non-point pollution on water quality and health, and outline the economic characteristics of five instruments that can be used to reduce agricultural nonpoint source pollution (economic incentives, standards, education, liability, and research) and discusses empirical research related to the use of these instruments.

Farmers received nearly $ million as incentive payments to implement agricultural nonpoint source pollution abatement programs in the Maumee and Sandusky River watersheds from to About 95% of these funds was from federal sources.

Carlin, A. The US Experience with Economic Incentives to Control Environmental Pollution, EPAR, Washington, D.C.: EPA. Nonpoint-source pollution is the opposite of point-source pollution, with pollutants released in a wide area.

As an example, picture a city street during a thunderstorm. As rainwater flows over asphalt, it washes away drops of oil that leaked from car. The current pollution policies based on economic instruments should be changed towards efforts nurturing stakeholders’ collective action and the necessary institutional setting.

Non-point source (NPS) pollution has been increasingly serious in China since the s. The increases of agricultural NPS pollution in China is evaluated for the period − by surveying the literature on water and soil pollution from fertilizers and pesticides, and assessing the surplus nitrogen balance within provinces.

The main causes for NPS pollution were excessive inputs. However, agricultural nonpoint-source pollution--that is, water pollution from runoff of fertilizers, pesticides, and agricultural land sediment--remains largely unregulated.(1) Solving a number of important remaining water pollution problems requires reducing agricultural nonpoint pollution.Table of Contents Disclaimer This document provides guidance to States, Territories, authorized Tribes, and the public regarding management measures that may be used to reduce nonpoint source pollution .Agricultural nonpoint source (NPS) pollution is the leading source of water quality impacts to rivers and lakes.

Nitrogen from fertilizers, manure, waste and ammonia turns into nitrite and nitrate. High levels of these toxins deplete waters of oxygen, killing all of the animals and fish.

Nitrates also soak into the ground and end up in drinking.
