Abstract:

Since 2000, the Virginia and Maryland Associations of Municipal Wastewater Agencies (V/MAMWA) have participated in efforts led by the Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) to derive new water quality goals for the Bay and its tidal tributaries. The emphasis between 2000 and 2002 has been on defining new designated uses and water quality criteria for dissolved oxygen, water clarity, and chlorophyll a. By working with other scientists from government and academia, V/MAMWA scientists have placed emphasis on the need to (1) establish strong, quantitative connections between criteria and uses; (2) address natural variability; and (3) derive flexible implementation approaches that acknowledge scientific uncertainty. Municipal participation has strengthened the scientific basis of the new goals while also revealing important limitations. Both types of contributions are expected to improve water quality management for the Chesapeake Bay.
