The Bay is responding to Pennsylvania’s efforts. While those efforts have been numerous and widespread, they have not been enough to yield large-scale improvements in tidal water and habitat quality. With current funding and existing infrastructure, Pennsylvania and the other watershed jurisdictions are decades away from achieving their tributary strategies, reaching their cap load goals and restoring their rivers and the Bay. Questions for Consideration:  Questions for Consideration What enhancements in infrastructure are needed to support accelerated implementation rates? If you are already working smarter, can you expect to reach your goals just doing more of the same? How can your watershed partners, your EPA colleagues and the Chesapeake Bay Program Office help you do what you do best?
