Chesapeake Bay: Emerging Policy And Practice Innovations To Improve Water Quality Presentation Now Available Online

The January 23 Water Insights Seminar featuring a presentation by Matt Royer of Penn State’s Agriculture and Environment Center on the topic Pennsylvania and the Chesapeake Bay: Emerging Policy and Practice Innovations to Improve Water Quality is now available online.
Nutrient and sediment pollution from nonpoint sources and land use and land management alterations are among the most persistent unsolved environmental problems we face today.
Several decades of effort to reduce nutrient and sediment pollution to the Chesapeake Bay has resulted in progress but not at the pace necessary to meet water quality goals.
Innovative approaches in policy and practice are emerging in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to accelerate clean water efforts.
This seminar will discuss progress and approaches to date and the challenges to meeting clean water goals when dealing with nonpoint-dominated pollution sources.
New and emerging innovations will also be discussed, including ideas promoted at the Pennsylvania in the Balance Conference (March 2016), and successful development and deployment of necessary delivery mechanisms in priority watersheds through community-based watershed engagement and partnerships.
