Crediting Water Quality Benefits from Stream Restoration: Implementation Case Studies and Potential for Crediting Guidance Application
The Butler County Storm Water District is hosting the 2018 webcast series produced by the Center for Watershed Protection. This training session is being provided FREE of charge. Don't miss out! Bring your lunch and take advantage of a great training opportunity.
Crediting stream restoration projects for sediment and nutrient reduction purposes is rapidly increasing as managers look to stream restoration as an essential tool in helping to meet waste load allocations from Total Maximum Loadings. The Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) Stream Restoration Crediting Protocols were developed to provide a general technical framework for quantifying the water quality benefits of a specific suite of stream restoration practices, focusing on sediment and nutrients. In 2016 the Water Research Foundation (WRF) developed the report Stream Restoration as a BMP: Crediting Guidance for their membership that includes the CBP protocols. This webcast will highlight the experiences that municipalities have had with the implementation of the Stream Restoration Protocols across the Chesapeake Bay Watershed at the state and local municipality level, as well as the feedback from states outside of the Chesapeake Bay watershed who have adopted or are considering adopting the WRF Guidance.
