Chesapeake Bay TMDL

EPA Interim Evaluation of 2016-2017 Milestone Progress in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

On June 30, 2017, EPA provided its interim evaluations to the Bay jurisdictions on their progress toward meeting their 2016-2017 milestones and Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP) goals. Bay jurisdictions include Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

EPA also provided an interim assessment to the federal agencies on progress toward meeting their 2016-2017 water quality milestones set forth under the Chesapeake Bay Executive Order 13508 strategy. These WIP goals and milestones outline steps the jurisdictions and federal agencies are taking to have all pollution control measures in place by 2025 to fully restore the Bay. By the end of 2017, practices should be in place to meet 60 percent of the necessary pollution reductions compared to 2009.
