Important work is being conducted by the Chesapeake Bay Program partnership to maintain healthy watersheds by identifying, promoting, supporting, and tracking the implementation of sustainable land use practices that protect natural resource values, including water quality, from the threat of urban/suburban development and prevent increased pollutant loadings in watersheds that are most vulnerable to the threat of urban/suburban development. Additional information on these efforts will be included over time.
