Lasting Solutions for Clean Water and Climate Resilience

  • RURAL SOLUTIONS. Restoring clean water and healthy habitat in the Chesapeake Bay means engaging with Maryland’s largest industry, agriculture, to reduce polluted runoff from farms.
  • URBAN SOLUTIONS. To secure clean water for more than 4 million people in our Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, we must reduce pollution from urban stormwater.
  • FOREST SOLUTIONS. Mounting evidence shows that protecting and restoring healthy, connected forests will enable habitats, wildlife and communities to ride out changes in our climate.
  • COASTAL SOLUTIONS. Natural solutions are helping to protect coastal habitats and communities from rising seas and the more frequent and intense storms we anticipate in the future.
