ENVIRONMENTAL PROGRAMS TO RESTORE AND PRESERVE THE CHESAPEAKE BAY AND ITS TRIBUTARIES
Abstract:The Chesapeake Bay Program is intended to restore the bay through a series of water and watershed management actions. Principal among these actions is reducing point sources loads. A total load for point sources loads has been established and a complex set of tributary and regulatory actions are in progress to attempt to attain the targeted reductions. The means of setting targets along with the regulatory actions to allocate load to various states, tributaries and load sources is examined with a particular emphasis on pollutant trading plans in Virginia. Grants and Stormwater control are also discussed.
