Phase I Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs), developed in 2010, describe actions the states need to take to address the Chesapeake Bay TMDL by 2017 and 2025. The Phase II WIPs, were developed by the states in 2012, and built on the initial Phase I WIPs by identifying specific activities that need to be taken at the federal, state and local level. In Virginia, following a significant local outreach effort, local governments submitted roughly 500 pollutant reduction strategies for inclusion in the Phase II WIP, reflecting a strong commitment on the part of local officials to reduce pollutants within their jurisdictions. As with the two previous WIPs, the Phase III WIPs will include an update of state and federal strategies and the identification of new pollutant reduction strategies. It will also include a more focused and sustained local engagement effort and local strategies.

 

 

 

 

PDC WIP III Submittals

The files below are the results from the local engagement process that 14 Planning District Commissions in Virginia’s portion of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed engaged in from July to December 2018. The PDCs’ role in this process was to facilitate meetings with the localities and other stakeholders in their areas, to select a mix of BMPs (“input deck”) based on progress with BMP implementation to date, and to identify corresponding programmatic actions that would work best within the PDC area. PDCs were also asked to identify capacity and funding needs for the identified

programmatic actions and BMP input decks. The PDC submittals are currently being reviewed in the context of all other nutrient reduction actions across the Virginia Bay watershed and will be incorporated into the Draft Phase III WIP, which is due to be released no later than April 9, 2019 for public comment.
