Abstract
The report summarizes state of the art information in the Northwest on available nonpoint source (NPS) monitoring techniques for aquatic ecosystems. The document evaluates the potential to use ecosystem measures such as fish habitat improvements and riparian area quality to assess the effectiveness of NPS control. The four main objectives of the report are to: (1) inventory selected monitoring programs associated with best management practices implemented by agricultural and silvicultural resource management agencies, including programs that use only baseline monitoring; (2) summarize water quality and aquatic habitat parameters that have been monitored and the techniques that have been used; (3) evaluate the applicability of monitoring techniques, particularly those assessing aquatic habitat condition; (4) recommend, based on experience of the region, appropriate elements of a monitoring program.
