Chesapeake Bay TMDL

EPA Oversight of Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs) and Milestones in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

The TMDL is being implemented using an accountability framework that guides restoration efforts using four elements. These elements include Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs), two-year milestones, EPA’s tracking and assessment of restoration progress and, as necessary, specific federal actions if the Bay states do not meet their commitments. Bay states include Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Under the accountability framework, EPA committed to conduct ongoing oversight of Bay states' programs to ensure they are on track to meet the goals of their WIPs and two-year milestones.
