Watershed Implementation Plans (also referred to as WIPs) are the next step in our continued progression toward a restored Chesapeake Bay. These plans consider such things as ecological restoration and sustainability while allowing for greater transparency and accountability for improved performance.
West Virginia's WIP Development Team is responsible for creating these documents (WIPs) that documents how West Virginia will partner with federal and local governments to achieve and maintain water quality standards.
Around the time these WIPs are to be developed, a federal TMDL will require reductions of nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment. This federal effort is intended to obtain water quality standards for each of the Bay's tidal segments, tributaries and embayments listed as impaired under 303(d) of the Clean Water Act.
For more information about the TMDL process, including news and events, please visit the EPA's Chesapeake Bay TMDL website.
