Improved management of the roadside ditch network can be an effective pollutant reduction strategy in many rural and/or un-regulated portions of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. In this exciting webcast, we will discuss new work being done to define a set of ditch management practices for future crediting towards Chesapeake Bay TMDL goals. Then, we will have several guests tell us more about these practices by sharing their work on ditch retrofits, ditch removal and more!
