Functions and objectives include to:
- Discuss the development, evaluation and tracking of the two-year milestones,
- Provide recommendations and feedback to EPA on the status and process of using two-year milestones to aid in meeting the Chesapeake Bay TMDL allocations,
- Provide a partnership forum during development of the 2012-2013 (and future) milestones to resolve anticipated issues and foster information exchanges among the Chesapeake Bay watershed jurisdictions and federal agencies,
- Assist in the development of a tracking database for milestone activities
