      The governments signed a new agreement that required a 40 percent reduction in nutrient pollution to the Bay by The agreement was reaffirmed. CBF published the first "State of the Bay" report card on the Bay's health, grading it a 27 on a scale of Chesapeake Bay Tributary Strategies were developed by the seven watershed jurisdictions (Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia). The strategies outlined the river basin-specific implementation activities to reduce nutrient and sediment pollutant loads from point and nonpoint sources.

      Virginia Chesapeake Bay strategy. A successful nutrient and sediment reduction strategy will have significant positive impacts on water quality in Virginia’s creeks, streams, rivers and coastal embayments that feed the lower Chesapeake Bay. Likewise this combined strategy, along with strategies being developed for Maryland, Pennsylvania. As part of the process to re-evaluate the Basinwide Nutrient Reduction Strategy, the EPA Chesapeake Bay Program Office(CBPO), along with the states, used both the watershed and the Bay models to simulate load reductions and water quality responses to management scenarios for both point and nonpoint source control activities.

      2. A report on progress made pursuant to the "Chesapeake Bay Basinwide Toxics Reduction and Prevention Strategy" signed by the Chesapeake Executive Council on Octo , that is applicable to the tributary for which the plan is prepared. 3. BMP Verification Pennsylvania’s BMP Verification Program. EPA’s Chesapeake Bay Program has called for increased transparency and scientific rigor in the verification of the best management practices that are implemented as part of the Bay states' Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs) and the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL).

This Chesapeake Bay Nutrient and Sediment Reduction Tributary Strategy for the York River and Lower York Coastal Basins reflects a continuation of Virginia’s commitment to improving local water quality and the water quality and living resources of the Chesapeake Bay. With its roots in the creation of the Chesapeake Bay.

The Nutrient Trading Program (Program) is one part of the Bay restoration strategy being implemented. The primary purpose of the Program is to provide a more cost-efficient way for National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permittees in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed to meet their effluent cap load limits for nutrients.

In JanuaryThe Chesapeake Executive Council adopted the Basinwide Toxics Reduction Strategy in fulfillment of the Chesapeake Bay Agreement and committed to reevaluate the Strategy of the Clean Water Act as a foundation for action and initiates a multi-jurisdictional effort to B better define the nature, extent, and magnitude of.
