Map: Point Sources and Priority Agricultural Watersheds - Maryland

This map shows the location of point sources of nutrient pollution and priority agricultural watersheds as identified by the Chesapeake Bay Program with input from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). Point sources include both monitored and estimated data submitted from or approved by each jurisdiction. Priority agricultural watersheds include SPARROW catchments ranking in the top quartile for delivered loads of nitrogen or phosphorus from agricultural sources normalized by the total amount of agricultural areas within the catchment. The priority areas were further refined to emphasize high loading areas which also contained potential agriculture-related water quality impairments based on individual state 303d (impaired waters) lists.
