This report compares two approaches to the agricultural nonpoint source pollution control problem: source control and instream water quality management (ISWQM). Source control is a strategy of controlling pollution loadings by using standards such as soil loss limits or best management practices without relating them directly to water quality goals. ISWQM is a strategy for determining water quality goals by examining pollution effects and other considerations and developing a resource management plan for achieving those goals. ISWQM relates land management more closely to water quality goals. The report discusses the information needs, institutional arrangements, and the strengths and weaknesses of each approach.
