Local Area Targets Task Force

Scope and Purpose

The Local Area Targets Task Force was convened by the Water Quality Goal Implementation Team to make recommendations regarding whether the Phase III Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs) should include local area targets (LATs) and, if so, present options for how these targets could be expressed in different jurisdictions. The Task Force will address findings from the Chesapeake Bay TMDL Stakeholder Assessment, including the goal of raising awareness of local partners' contribution towards acheiving the Bay TMDL; the technical capacity of the Phase 6 Chesapeake Bay Program modeling suite; how local implementation addresses local conditions, needs and opportunities, such as local water quality; and the availability of tools to assist in the development and optimization of local implementation strategies. The Task Force will consider jurisdictions' efforts and methods to develop LATs as part of the Phase II WIPs and recent work to establish federal facility targets. Task Force recommendations will inform the Phase III WIP expectations.
