Agreement and Outcome

This PowerPoint is designed for audiences that have some background in watershed implementation plans and knowledge of the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (Bay TMDL). It will inform them about the co-benefits associated with implementing certain conservation practices. The majority of these practices not only help in meeting your state’s water quality goals under the Bay TMDL, but also can meet other restoration goals not only for the Chesapeake Bay, but for the local waterways in your community. These conservation practices can benefit you and your community by providing economic and public health benefits; your state by helping to meet their goals for reducing nutrient pollution; and your local waterways by helping with their restoration and protection.

The workgroups at the Chesapeake Bay Program recommend 12 outcomes to consider when planning your conservation practices. They’ve developed a series of fact sheets to help you understand why they are beneficial and what would be the best for your and your community’s needs.
