  1. CBP Partnership Team- Enhance Monitoring in the Bay and its Watershed Scott Phillips, USGS Jonathan Kramer, MD Sea Grant

  2. Outline • Monitoring Needs and Objectives • Chesapeake Bay Program Action Plan • Presidential Executive Order • Current CBP Monitoring Efforts • Partnership Team Objectives

  3. Chesapeake Action Plan • CBP Goals • Emphasis on implementation • Optimize resources • “Adaptive management” approach • Plan • Goals and Targets • ID priority areas and practices • Implement • Monitor and Assess • Evaluate and Adapt • Science and monitoring

  5. “Delisting” the Bay -Water-quality standards -Fish, Crabs, and Grasses Source: EPA Shad, Herring, Perch and Rockfish Spawning Habitat Bay Grasses Habitat Rockfish, Bluefish Menhaden Habitat Oyster, Crab, Croaker and Spot Habitat Summertime Crab Food Habitat

  6. Effectiveness of Actions • Water Quality • N, P, and sediment allocations • Tributary strategies • Changes in nutrients and sediment • Land Use • Changes in sources • BMPs • Stream conditions • Biological communities • Habitat • Estuary response

  7. Presidential Executive Order • Topics: • Living resources • Water quality • Agriculture and watersheds • Expand public access • Climate Change • Monitoring and ecosystem management • Ecosystem management • Report to strengthen monitoring • Fish and wildlife in Bay and watershed • Water quality and habitat • Adaptive management • Assess existing monitoring and gaps

  8. Monitoring Partnerships • Water-quality networks • Watershed • NT network • Small watersheds • Estuary • Status and trends • Shallow water • Living Resources/Habitat • SAV • Fisheries

  9. Ecosystem-based fisheries management

  10. Partnership Team Objectives • Id existing water quality and habitat programs in nontidal areas that meet “management effectiveness” needs. • Id partner efforts in tidal areas that could meet “delisting” needs and fill gaps in water quality and habitat monitoring created by funding redirection. • Id partner monitoring programs to assess priority living resources and habitats. • Id gaps where needs are not met. • Outcomes: • Chesapeake Bay Program monitoring report • Information for Presidential E.O. report

  11. Challenges • Scope • Water quality • Living resources and habitat • Information for E.O. • Interacting with partners • Accurate inventory • Flexibility in modifying programs • Multiple partners and priorities • Time and people • Report deadlines • CBP • E.O • Limited availability of people
