Planning Goals

Local Area Planning Goals

Local area planning goals (LAPG) are developed by states from the Phase III Planning targets. These planning targets are developed from the no action scenario on 2010 base conditions, the everything, everywhere by everyone scenario (E3) on 2010 base conditions, watershed and estuarine relative effectiveness, and the Chesapeake Bay assimilative capacity while accounting for projected atmospheric deposition load reductions. The planning targets do not include exchanges between nitrogen and phosphorus, exchanges among river basins, Conowingo reservoirs infill, or climate change impacts.

The final planning targets are posted below. The LAPGs developed from the targets are not yet available.
