The Healthy Waters Initiative works with Eastern Shore local governments to address their water quality and stormwater treatment goals under the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and their local TMDLs. The Initiative is sponsored by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Eastern Shore Land Conservancy, Harry R. Hughes Center for Agro-Ecology, and University of Maryland Sea Grant Extension. The group initially held a roundtable discussion at the MACo Summer Conference in August of 2015. After four subsequent meetings, the group released an action plan outlining several key areas that Eastern Shore jurisdictions should focus on to meet water quality goals.
