The ADEQ administers the Water Quality Improvement Grant (WQIG) program, which aims to reduce non-point source pollution in watersheds discharging to impaired streams across the state.

To confirm the effectiveness of these measures and environmental response to them, ADEQ staff qualitatively and quantitatively monitor them and report pollutant load reductions to the Environmental Protection Agency.
