In 2010 and throughout 2011, Chesapeake Bay watershed counties have been creating their own Watershed Implementation Plans, strategies for reducing nutrients and sediments that impact water quality in the Bay.
In the following videos, Tom Fisher, professor at Horn Point Laboratory, at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science, describes the following:
- What is a WIP (or watershed implementation plan)?
- Why were the WIPs created?
- What impacts water quality?
- What can we do to make a difference?
