Maryland Phase III Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP) strategies are being developed this year. Goals have been set by the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) to reduce nutrients and sediment from entering the Chesapeake Bay. The reduction in nutrients and sediment will be achieved through the installation of Best Management Practices (BMPs). These goals need to be achieved by the year 2025.

The Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) is hosting workshops throughout the state to develop the WIP III strategies. Local Soil Conservation Districts play a large role in achieving these goals within the agricultural community.
