Next Steps

With the advent of Phase III Watershed Implementation Plans and the approaching 2025 goals, the increasing complexity of hitting targets requires additional innovations. Further, we need to analyze current practices, get feedback on how effective they are and where they are effective.

Currently, the focus of this BMP compendium is limited to the Eastern Shore. We hope to expand it geographically. If you are aware or engaged in other BMPs that aren’t mentioned, please provide us with that information at [email protected] so we can update it and grow the compendium. Also, please share this website with people to help promote its use.

Solving local problems through innovative solutions like best management practices can have benefits to local business owners, residents and governments beyond pollution reduction, like beautification and local farm management — addressing current needs, but also enhancing the future.
