1 Nonpoint Source (NPS) Program PENNVEST Funding For: Non-Point Source Pollution Projects Brion Johnson, Deputy Executive Director

2 Categories of NPS pollution projects  Agriculture  Urban Runoff  Abandoned Mine Drainage  Brownfields

3 Green InfrastructureProjects Examples of eligible green infrastructure  Installation of porous pavement, green roofs and other approaches to managing wet weather run-off  Street tree and urban forestry programs  Installation of riparian buffers and wetlands  Downspout disconnection programs to eliminate storm water from combined sewer systems  Installation of water meters  Purchase of leak detection equipment  Energy efficiency – retrofits and upgrades to pumps and treatment processes  Installation of water efficient fixtures, fittings, equipment and appliances

4 Types of Specific Practices  Agricultural BMPs: BMPs in NRCS Technical Manual  Urban Runoff: BMPs in DEP Stormwater Best Practice Manual (Limited to “Developed” areas identified in County Comprehensive Plan)  AMD & Brownfields: Specific lists of BMPs in the Preliminary Program Design manual
