One of the key outcomes under the Toxic Contaminant Goal established in the 2014 Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement is to “identify which best management practices (BMPs) might provide multiple benefits of reducing nutrient and sediment pollution as well as toxic contaminants in waterways”. Such multiple benefits could provide significant cost savings to the Chesapeake Bay Partnership to simultaneously meet the Bay TMDL and to reduce toxic contaminants in the environment.

The Chesapeake Stormwater Network conducted a 1-year research synthesis to:

  1. Investigate the potential toxic contaminant reduction benefits that could be associated with the implementation of BMPs for sediment and nutrient reduction under the Bay TMDL and
  2. Provide water resource managers with better BMP data to develop more effective local TMDLs and action strategies to control toxic pollutants in the watershed.

At this webcast, CSN will be summarizing the overall findings of this hot off the press report. Please join us!
