With the signing of the Chesapeake 2000 agreement, Pennsylvania made a commitment to help remove the Chesapeake Bay from the federal Clean Water Act’s list of impaired waters. As part of this commitment, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection developed a Chesapeake Bay Tributary Strategy to help achieve this goal.
As part of Pennsylvania’s Chesapeake Bay Tributary Strategy, county conservation districts in Pennsylvania’s portion of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed have developed County Implementation Plans that emphasize water quality results through the application of best management practices, educational activities, or demonstration sites.
A County Implementation Plan can serve as a valuable management tool and is the central focus for many district programs.
By viewing the various plans, conservation districts can gain ideas on research and analysis, funding, and specific goals developed by other districts. Groups or organizations that are interested in coordinating their activities with a conservation district(s) may also be interested in reviewing the plans.
