Ensuring a clean and adequate water supply implies using water conservatively and protecting water resources from pollution.  Sediment, nutrient, and pesticide losses in runoff are major pollutants of surface waters in the Midwest.  This publication addresses targeting best management practices (BMPs) in watersheds or landscapes to maximize the impact of investments in water quality protection.  It is intended as a resource for those who advise on or practice land and water management.
