Quantifying Ecosystem Services and Co-Benefits of Nutrient and Sediment Reducing BMPs
The Chesapeake Bay Program partnership recognizes the need to make it easier for decision-makers across the watershed to appropriately value local ecosystem services in addition to clean water. This workshop would focus on designing a Partnership framework for assembling information that allows for translation of a suite of eco-services (flood attenuation, recreational values, storm buffering capacity, open-space access and wildlife habitat) into a common currency that can be considered alongside water quality when making decisions and motivating action. Results would be used by the jurisdictions in the development of their Phase 3 Watershed Implementation Plans to optimize achievement of nutrient/sediment load reductions while enhancing progress toward related outcomes in the 2014 Bay Watershed Agreement.
