Bay TMDL and Local Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP)
In December, 2010,The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in coordination with the Chesapeake Bay watershed jurisdictions, established a nutrient and sediment pollution diet for the Bay to guide and assist Chesapeake Bay restoration efforts. This pollution diet is known as the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL), or Bay TMDL. Concurrent with the TMDL, EPA charged the Bay watershed states with developing Watershed Implementation Plans in order to provide adequate reasonable assurance that the jurisdictions can and will achieve the nutrient and sediment reductions necessary to implement the TMDL within their respective boundaries.
