GLIN==> PA's Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Program Approved



The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued final approval May 16 for
Pennsylvania's Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Program, submitted in 1995 in
accordance with Section 6217 of the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization
Amendments of 1990.

Pennsylvania is the fifth state of the 33 coastal program states and
territories to receive full approval. The program covers practices to reduce
nonpoint source pollution from five types of activities: forestry,
agriculture, urban runoff, hydromodification, and marinas and recreational
boating. Pennsylvania is addressing these sources largely through existing
programs. Final approval qualifies Pennsylvania for additional Coastal Zone
Management Program funding to address nonpoint pollution sources to our
coastal waters and their tributaries.
