On December 3, 2001, the Chesapeake Executive Council held its annual meeting at Washington, DC's Union Station. The Executive Council set in motion policies to improve storm water management on federal, state and District-owned land and hosted two signing ceremonies enhancing partnerships formed to restore the Chesapeake Bay.
In keeping with this year's theme of improving urban waterways, the 2001Anacostia Watershed Restoration Agreement was signed to restore the Anacostia River, one of the key Priority Urban Waters identified in the Chesapeake 2000 agreement.
The second agreement, among the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, Center for Watershed Protection and the National Association of Home Builders, launched the "Builders for the Bay" program which encourages Bay-friendly development practices.
