Presented by: Rich Batiuk, Associate Director for Science, Analysis and Implementation, US Environmental Protection Agency; Lee Currey, Director of Science Services Administration, Maryland Department of the Environment.
Conference Objectives: Accelerate Bay restoration goals by: 1) highlighting emerging scientific discovery, policy development, and
implementation by the public or private sectors; 2) enhancing BMP implementation of water quality goals to meet the TMDL, ecosystem health, and practices that also have the synergistic impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions; and 3) develop and implement a communication plan that translate and transmits the conference findings to a broader audience, particularly leading environmental decision-makers.
