The Fraser River Action Plan (FRAP) was established to reduce the pollution inputs to the Fraser River and restore the natural productivity of the Fraser River basin. The primary goal of the agricultural component of FRAP is to implement a strategy to reduce the loading of nutrients, bacteria and agrochemicals from agricultural operations to ground and surface waters. Targets and strategies for the reduction are to be developed in consultation with stakeholders such as producer groups, the B.C. Ministry of Agricultural, Fisheries and Food, B.C.

The major non point sources of potential contamination in rural areas are from agricultural operations. The primary objective of this study was to develop
