Applying the Decision Framework to Attaining Water Quality Standards in the Chesapeake Bay and Its Tidal Tributaries

Published: July 16, 2012

The Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) Water Quality Goal Implementation Team (WQGIT) supports the commitments of the CBP partnership to reduce nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment pollution loads in order to achieve water-quality standards in the tidal waters of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Many WQGIT activities relate to implementing the accountability framework within the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load for Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Sediment (Bay TMDL), which draws significantly on adaptive -management principles and was informed by numerous decisions of the WQGIT, its workgroups, and its CBP predecessors (Water Quality Steering Committee, Nutrient Subcommittee).
