Each county must produce a plan, called a watershed implementation plan or WIP, to reduce pollution entering the Chesapeake Bay through its streams and rivers. This represents the best chance we've had in decades to make lasting, local improvements that will give us clean water and will help the Bay become healthy again. Each WIP will be created on a local level and will reflect choices local communities make of which methods to reduce pollution make the most sense and will be most effective in that county.
