2002 Chesapeake Bay SAV Abundance and New Baywide Restoration Goal

Published: September 22, 2003

In 2002, SAV coverage reached a record 89,658 acres - more than twice the level first recorded in 1978. While this increase is impressive, a great deal more needs to be done to reach the Bay Program’s new 185,000-acre baywide restoration goal. To help put SAV restoration efforts into perspective, this backgrounder highlights SAV acreage in 1984 (the sparsest year on record), 2002 (the most abundant year on record) and new segment specific restoration goals adopted by the Bay Program in April 2003.
