The aim is to review existing knowledge and experience regarding the assessment and control of nonpoint source pollution, and bring this knowledge together in a form that is useful for both scientific and management purposes. The book is not meant to be an extensive technical treatise, but rather to provide sufficient information to allow interested persons to acquire a broad, general knowledge of the assessment, causes and control of nonpoint source pollution."--Jacket." ;
