Bay Restoration Initiatives
What are Bay Restoration Initiatives?
Bay Restoration Initiatives are high priority areas of interest that influence, guide, and promote Chesapeake Bay cleanup. Maryland works to identify Bay Restoration Initiatives and develop comprehensive solutions to manage them.
Maryland's Bay Restoration Initiatives
The Clean Water Commerce Act provides an opportunity for private sector investments to efficiently reduce sediment and nutrient pollution entering Chesapeake Bay. The State is able to purchase these pollution reductions using the Bay Restoration Fund.
Maryland's Water Quality Trading Program provides cost-effective solutions to reduce nutrient and sediment pollution by allowing the generating and selling of nutrient credits in the State marketplace .
