Abstract This study addresses the problem of analyzing nonpoint source pollution impacts from agriculture. A methodology for regional-level planning is presented that, with further refinement, could prove of significant value for broad analyses of large numbers of policy alternatives, including best management practices. The analytical method developed allows the simultaneous examination of the water quality impacts of selected agricultural practices and the economic effects that alternative practices and nonpoint source pollution control policies have on the farmer. The proposed methodology includes a farm model, a water quality model, and a qualitative approach for the assessment of the social and economic impacts of water quality changes on downstream users. It may be applied to evaluate government nonpoint source pollution control policies and the effects of alternative agricultural futures. The methodology's use for these purposes is evaluated through an illustrative example based on data from the Black Creek watershed in Northeastern Indiana and a synthesized downstream impoundment.
