PA Chesapeake Bay Watershed Planning Steering Committee Meets Wednesday On Targeting Most Cost Effective Practices

Analyzing highest pollutant loading areas will be the focus of the September 27 meeting of the Steering Committee for Phase 3 of Pennsylvania’s plan to clean up local waters in its part of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
The Susquehanna River Basin Commission, U.S. Geological Survey, and Chesapeake Bay Program will introduce data and software that work groups and local partners will use to help determine priority areas for pollutant reduction throughout Pennsylvania’s Bay watershed counties.
Matt Johnston, University of Maryland Chesapeake Bay Program Nonpoint Source Data Analyst,  told the panel in August his office will present the Steering Committee with a data run at its September meeting showing the top best management practices for meeting each pollutant-- nitrogen, phosphorous and sediment-- reductions for each county in the Pennsylvania portion of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
All of those practices will be on-farm conservation BMPs.
The meeting will be held in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson Building from 1:00 to 4:00.  The meeting will also be available via webinar.  Click Here to register.
