1 Phase III Watershed Implementation Plans Including programmatic outcomes in your planning to provide co-benefits for your community and reduce pollution Rachel Felver Chesapeake Bay Program Director of Communications May 17, 2018
2 Why are we here today? To explain why building certain conservation practices into your Phase III Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs) can benefit: you and your community by providing economic and public health benefits, your state by helping to meet their goals for reducing nutrient pollution, and your local waterways by helping with their restoration and protection.
3 What are the Phase III WIPs? Detailed, specific steps to address nutrient and sediment pollution. Required to meet the pollution reduction goals set in the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load, or Bay TMDL. Your conservation practices can be credited to help your state meet their pollution goals. Beneficial for keeping your local waterways healthy.
4 Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement Signed in 2014 by the six watershed states, the District of Columbia, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Chesapeake Bay Commission. Contains 10 goals and 31 outcomes to advance the restoration and protection of the Bay watershed.
5 Why are co-benefits important? Implementing certain conservation practices can help meet your state s pollution reduction goals but also can. Help meet the goals of the Watershed Agreement Provide economic benefits to and your community Improve the health and welfare of your friends and family
6 How can these outcomes provide co-benefits?
7 A Rural Story Mercer Vu Farms Conservation practices implemented: no-till farming, cover crops and riparian buffers. Benefits: cost savings, innovative uses of byproducts, reduction in air pollution and minimal climate impacts. Outcomes met: climate resiliency, forest buffers, stream health
8 A Suburban Story READY Program Conservation practices implemented: rain gardens, forest buffers, rain barrels, impervious surface treatment Benefits: job creation, environmental education, reduced stormwater loads Outcomes met: forest buffers, tree canopy, diversity, environmental literacy

10 Name of outcome. Short summary about the outcome and its cobenefits. Table showing best management practices with co-benefits in mind. The table shows the effects of best management practices on outcomes on a scale from +5 (very beneficial) to -5 (very harmful).
11 Guiding principles for incorporating outcome (WIP development and implementation). Additional tools and resources. Points of contact.
12 Brook Trout
13 Outcome: Restore and sustain naturally reproducing brook trout populations in Chesapeake headwater streams with an eight percent increase in occupied habitat by Progress: A formal indicator of progress for brook trout is under development. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Agricultural forest buffers Streamside forest buffers Will also benefit these outcomes! Habitat and biodiversity Stream health Fish habitat Healthy watersheds Forest buffer Tree canopy
14 What should I know about brook trout? Water quality is imperative to sustaining a healthy brook trout habitat. They thrive in clean, cool streams (under 68 degrees Fahrenheit). Plant agriculture and streamside buffers conserve nearby forests to reduce temperature and sediment inputs. Brook trout are highly prized by recreational anglers who spend millions of dollars annually on related goods and services, including travel, that would directly benefit local and state economies.
15 Climate Resiliency
16 Goal: Increase the resiliency of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, including its living resources, habitats, public infrastructure and communities, to withstand adverse impacts from changing environmental and climate conditions. Progress: A formal indicator of progress for climate adaption and climate monitoring and assessment is under development. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Urban Forest Buffers Forest Conservation Will also benefit these outcomes! Climate adaption Energy efficiency Flood risk mitigation
17 What should I know about climate resiliency? Addressing climate impacts in conjunction with ongoing restoration efforts will prepare your community for greater variability and can help achieve cost savings and reduce risks. Considering future impacts during the planning, siting, design and implementation of conservation practices can help to reduce the vulnerability of a project to fail. Assessing climate impacts at the initial stage of watershed implementation planning will increase effectiveness, decrease maintenance costs and contribute toward meeting pollution reduction goals.
18 Fish Habitat
19 Outcome: Continually improve effectiveness of fish habitat conservation and restoration efforts by identifying and characterizing critical spawning, nursery and forage areas within the Bay and tributaries for important fish and shellfish, and use existing and new tools to integrate information and conduct assessments to inform restoration and conservation efforts. Progress: A formal indicator of progress for fish habitat is under development. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Agricultural forest buffer. Streamside forest buffer. Urban stream restoration. Will also benefit these outcomes! Protected lands. Habitat biodiversity. Brook trout. Blue crab. Recreation. Forage fish. Wetlands.
20 What do I need to know about fish habitat? Fish are important to ecosystem function and provide economic and social benefits. Local land use decisions impact the production and sustainability of fish resources. If designed effectively, infrastructure projects and conservation practices can improve fish habitat, create resiliency to projected climate change impacts and decrease erosion.
21 Forest Buffers
22 Outcome: Continually increase the capacity of forest buffers to provide water quality and habitat benefits throughout the watershed. Restore 900 miles per year of riparian forest buffer and conserve existing buffers until at least 70 percent of riparian areas throughout the watershed are forested. Progress: As of 2015, seven percent of the annual target achieved. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Agricultural forest buffer. Forest conservation. Urban forest buffers. Will also benefit these outcomes! Habitat biodiversity. Brook trout. Stream health. Fish habitat. Healthy watersheds. Tree canopy.
23 What do I need to know about forest buffers? Riparian forest buffers reduce bacteria, microorganisms, microplastic fibers, harmful algal blooms, and many emerging contaminants that are found in surface waters, including drinking water. Riparian forest buffers keep streams cool for fish and wildlife. Buffers help municipalities by treating stormwater, dissipating flood energy, and reducing erosion potential of streams, rivers, and tides. Buffers also improve recreation like fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, biking, and wildlife viewing.
24 Healthy Watersheds
25 Outcome: 100 percent of state-identified currently healthy waters and watersheds remain healthy. Progress: Each of the six watershed states and the District of Columbia have different definitions of healthy waters and watersheds in which they use to track and support protection. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Agricultural forest buffers. Forest conservation. Urban forest buffers. Urban growth reduction. Urban stream restoration. Will also benefit these outcomes! Protected lands. Biodiversity habitat. Brook trout. Stream health. Fish habitat. Forage fish. Flood mitigation. Recreation.
26 What should I know about healthy watersheds? It s important to know where the healthy waters and watersheds in your community and state are located. Intact healthy ecosystems prevent costly restoration and ecosystem service replacement and provide long-term societal benefits. Implementation of planning incentives, tools and policies aimed at reducing the rate of conversion of natural lands (within healthy watersheds) to development can help: offset future urban growth, increase conservation, provide flood mitigation, maintain source water and help meet water quality pollution reduction goals.
27 Protected Lands
28 Outcome: By 2025, protect an additional two million acres of lands throughout the watershed currently identified as high conservation priorities at the federal, state or local level including 225,000 acres of wetlands and 695,000 acres of forest land of highest value for maintaining water quality. Progress: As of , fifty percent of the outcome had been achieved. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Agricultural forest buffers. Forest conservation. Urban forest buffers. Also benefit these outcomes! Biodiversity and habitat. Wetlands. Healthy watersheds. Land use metrics and methods. Fish habitat. Climate adaption. Forest buffers. Recreation.
29 What should I know about protected lands? Preserving lands increase the economic benefits generated by the outdoor recreation industry and improves human health and well-being through regularity of spending time in nature. Local economies are buoyed by tourism to preserve historic, cultural and heritage sites and landscapes. The Chesapeake Bay Program is perfecting for the first time a set of new Conservation Plus Best Management Practices with estimated pollution load reductions for the retention of high quality forests, agricultural lands, and growth management. These new conservation practices will be available for localities projected to experience future growth and development to consider in preparing their Phase III WIPs.
30 Public Access
31 Outcome: By 2025, add 300 new public access sites, with a strong emphasis on providing opportunities for boating, swimming and fishing, where feasible. Progress: As of 2016, 44 percent of the outcome has been achieved. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Agricultural forest buffer. Forest conservation. Urban stream restoration. Also benefit these outcomes! Biodiversity habitat. Brook trout. Stream health. Healthy watersheds. Fish habitat. Forage fish.
32 What do I need to know about public access? Providing public access is a significant contributor to the economy of the Bay watershed. According to the 2006 study The Active Outdoor Recreation Economy, paddle-based recreation and fishing alone have a total national economic value of $97.5 billion. Open, green spaces and waterways with ample public access bolster public health and quality of life. Outdoor time strengthens family bonds and nurtures creative children, while building personal connections with the very places that have shaped life in the region for centuries especially its streams, rivers and bays. Designing and developing access sites in harmony with major infrastructure needs such as roads, utilities and schools can help to maximize benefits of dollars spent. Appropriate conservation practices developed as part of other infrastructure needs close to an access site may reduce the potential development impact of the access facility.
33 Underwater Grasses
34 Outcome: Sustain and increase the habitat benefits of underwater grasses in the Chesapeake Bay. Achieve and sustain the ultimate outcome of 185,000 acres of grasses Bay-wide necessary for a restored Bay. Progress toward this ultimate outcome will be measured against a target of acres of 2017 and 130,000 acres by Progress: Fifty-three percent of the outcome has been achieved. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Nutrient management plan. Wetland and streamside wetland restoration. Agriculture stream restoration. Advanced grey infrastructure nutrient discovery program. Also can benefit these outcomes! Wetlands. Blue crab abundance. Oyster. Stream health. Fish habitat. Forage fish. Drinking water protection/security.
35 What should I know about underwater grasses? Underwater grasses are integral to the life cycle of many bay creatures; it provides oxygen, food and shelter for blue crabs and juvenile rockfish, supporting the health of valuable commercial and recreational fisheries. Underwater grasses are sensitive to changes in water quality, particularly clarity. Large sediment and nutrient loads lead to impaired conditions; it needs sunlight to grow. Avoid increases in nearby impervious surface Underwater grasses are sensitive to sea level rise; it requires adjacent nonhardened shoreline in order to migrate and sustain.
36 Stream Health
37 Outcome: Continually improve stream health and function throughout the watershed. Improve health and function of ten percent of stream miles above the 2008 baseline for the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Progress: As of 2010, 43 percent of streams across the watershed were in fair, good or excellent condition. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Forest conservation. Agricultural forest buffers. Urban forest buffers. Urban stream restoration. Also benefit these outcomes! Brook trout. Healthy watersheds. Forest buffers. Flood control/mitigation. Protected lands.
38 What should I know about stream health? Healthy streams and floodplains provide benefits for water filtration, flood mitigation and recreational opportunities while removing public safety and infrastructure hazards. Threats to streams include increased water volume and velocity due to land use changes, channelization and erosion from human development, as well as alteration of habitat features and water quality that reflect riparian development. When functioning together, stream and wetland complexes should be considered a powerful resource for complete upland filtration and habitat benefits.
39 Toxic Contaminants
40 Goal: Ensure that the Bay and its rivers are free of effects of toxic contaminants on living resources and human health. Progress: Eighty percent of the Chesapeake Bay and its tidal tributaries was partially or fully impaired by toxic contaminants in Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Narrow forest buffer. Agricultural forest buffer. Urban forest buffers. Also benefit these outcomes: Urban pollutants. Agricultural pollutants. Steam health. Forage fish. Citizen stewardship.
41 What should I know about toxic contaminants? Approximately 80 percent of the Bay s tidal water segments are at least partially impaired by one or more toxic contaminants, indicating that the problem is widespread. Contaminants vary by source sector and many are associated with either agricultural or urban land uses. Toxic contaminants can be partially controlled through practices that manage sediment this applies to all sectors (urban, agricultural, forested and open spaces).
42 Tree Canopy
43 Outcome: Continually increase urban tree canopy capacity to provide air quality, water quality and habitat benefits throughout the watershed. Expand urban tree canopy by 2,400 acres by Progress: A formal indicator of progress for climate adaption and climate monitoring and assessment is under development. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Agricultural forest buffers. Forest conservation. Urban forest buffers. Also benefit these outcomes: Habitat biodiversity. Air quality. Land use methods. Fish habitats. Healthy watersheds. Forest buffers.
44 What should I know about tree canopy? Tree canopy provides numerous benefits to human and watershed health. The shading powers of tree canopy produce energy savings to homeowners, businesses, local governments and utilities. Trees are the green infrastructure of communities. Green stormwater infrastructure is designed to mimic the function of a natural forest. Tree intercept and slow the delivery of stormwater runoff to local waterways while filtering and taking up pollutants.
46 Outcome: Continually increase the capacity of wetlands to provide water quality and habitat benefits throughout the watershed. Create or re-establish 85,000 acres of tidal and non-tidal wetlands and enhance the function of an additional 150,000 acres of degraded wetlands by These activities may occur in any land use (including urban) but primarily occur in agricultural or natural landscapes. Progress: As of 2015, nine percent of the outcome has been achieved. Implementing these conservation and restoration practices: Wetlands. Wet ponds. Urban forest buffers. Also benefit these outcomes: Black ducks. Climate adaption. Flood control/mitigation. Groundwater recharge/infiltration. Recreation.
47 Wetlands provide areas of infiltration for water and runoff to connect with the groundwater, thus filtering pollutants and toxins and recharging below ground reserves, while also creating vital habitat patches for wildlife which provide hunting and recreational opportunities with economic benefits to surrounding communities. Wetlands are threatened by direct land use conversation as well as development and land use changes that affect groundwater flow patterns, which can isolate wetlands from the rest of the landscape or permanently remove the source of water. When functioning together, wetland and stream complexes should be considered a powerful resource for complete upland filtration and habitat benefits.
48 Therefore.. Co-benefits can be powerful!
