Available in digital format and hardcopy. Streams are in integral part of the Chesapeake Bays natural infrastructure. Stream networks interconnect the land, water, living resources and human communities of the Bay watershed (Chesapeake 2000). As such, improving, restoring, and protecting stream ecosystems assumes a pivotal point in moving the Bay and its watershed resources towards the ideal condition. The primary goal of this Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) workshop was to promote science-based approaches to assist the Chesapeake Bay Program partner jurisdictions and their local partners in creating new or enhancing existing efforts to develop stream corridor restoration goals based on local watershed management planning. The workshop served as an opportunity to present alternative approaches for setting integrated stream corridor restoration goals and as a forum for discussion on how to identify common elements and determine how jurisdictions will begin or continue working towards setting these goals.
