Summary

This metadata record documents 3 sets of comma delimited tables representing the amount of reported best management practice (BMP) implementation within the Chesapeake Bay watershed as well as output data from scenarios of the Chesapeake Bay Program Phase 5.3.2 Watershed Model. The scenario data were used to estimate the effects of BMPs on water quality. The data are organized by three themes (child items below); 1) BMP implementation and definitions, 2) isolation scenarios, and 3) "Progress" and "No Action" scenarios.

Purpose

These data were created to isolate the effect of different types of BMPs to determine expected changes in nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment loads in the Chesapeake Bay watershed due to BMP implementation.
