State Stormwater Policy

Chesapeake Bay Watershed Map All of the Bay states are in the process of adapting more stringent stormwater regulations for both new development and redevelopment projects. In addition, each Bay state is implementing a watershed implementation plan to reduce pollutants from existing urban areas.

Each of the seven jurisdictions in the Bay watershed has a stormwater management program usually administered by their regulatory department. To learn more about each of the State’s Stormwater Management Program or to see what each State is doing to handle the Bay TMDL, review the links below.
