New Virginia Mapping Tool to Help Chesapeake Bay Restoration

Today the Northam Administration unveiled new mapping tools that will benefit water quality in local streams and the Chesapeake Bay by identifying places where conservation work can be most effective. As part of the Conserve Virginia interactive mapping tool, a new map layer will be added for water quality.

Chesapeake Bay Foundation Virginia Executive Director Peggy Sanner issued the following statement.

“Identifying exactly where clean water projects will be most effective should lead to significant benefits for Virginia’s efforts to reduce pollution from farms in the most cost-effective manner. This new tool will help identify the locations where conservation practices like forested buffers along streams and rivers are needed to efficiently reduce pollution to waterways. This is another step towards ensuring state investments are used wisely as Virginia works toward having all necessary water quality practices in place by 2025 to meet its clean water goals.”
