A Nonpoint Source Implementation Strategic Plan (NPS-IS Plan) is a guiding document that will allow local entities to effectively propose and implement projects using specific kinds of federal funding. In Ohio, eligibility for these grant programs will be restricted to projects summarized an approved NPS-IS Plan.

These plans are an update from the previous guiding documents called Watershed Action Plans (WAP). Tinker’s Creek Watershed currently has two of three NPS-IS Plan endorsed by both the Ohio EPA and U.S. EPA. You can read these plans here on our website, and we will add the third once it is endorsed.
