In a year of average rainfall, nonpoint sources contributed 67 percent of the nitrogen and 39 percent of the phosphorus entering the Chesapeake Bay. One effective method of control for these sources is the installation of Best Management Practices (BMPs) which help reduce agricultural pollutants. BMPs are farming methods and processes which when implemented will prevent or reduce water pollution. These include such practices as permanent vegetative cover, animal waste management systems, stripcropping and contour farming systems, conservation tillage systems, and fertilizer management. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) works closely with the states and provides financial assistance to implement BMPs. The financial assistance which in the form of grants to the states, provides cost share funds for landowners to correct nonpoint source pollution. At the local levels, several controls are required for admiistering these cost share funds. Committed Obligated Expected Expenditures Plan (COEEP) was designed to assist in the reporting of funds used for BMPs. The COEEP is a personal computer (PC) based data entry and reporting software package which tracks BMP transactions.
