USACE Releases Draft Chesapeake Bay Comprehensive Plan

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore and Norfolk districts, in partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) announced the release of the main report of the draft Chesapeake Bay Comprehensive Water Resources and Restoration Plan, May 31, 2018.

As USACE reported, the plan provides a single, comprehensive and integrated restoration roadmap to inform and help guide decision makers at all levels of government and non-governmental agencies, of the problems, needs and opportunities within the 64,000-square-mile Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

The Corps is seeking feedback until July 16, 2018, specifically on how the results of the analyses will provide value to and be used by stakeholders, and any additional projects that should be included in the Candidate Restoration Projects Database.

Candidate projects may include wetland or stream restoration, beneficial use of dredged material, fish passage, living shorelines, shoreline protection, emergency streambank protection, riparian buffers, acid mine drainage abatement, and ecosystem resilience.

The final report, which is anticipated to be submitted to Congress in summer 2019, will identify at least one project in each state and the District of Columbia that can be considered for implementation or technical assistance by the Corps or local jurisdictions.
