The 2011 Action Plan, required by the Executive Order, conveys the full scope of on-the-ground and in-the water efforts the federal government will undertake between October 1, 2010, and September 30, 2011 in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

From Chesapeake Bay Executive Order:

“The Action Plan for FY 2011 reflects a deep commitment and unprecedented coordination among federal agencies and the Obama Administration to improve our results in protecting and restoring the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed,” said Pete Silva, EPA Associate Administrator for Water. “The proposed funding and planned activities will help support state and local efforts, as well as be an investment in countless communities and local economies throughout the region.”

And:

…over $20 million directly to the states and the District to implement stronger regulatory and accountability programs to control urban, suburban, and agricultural runoff; and $30 million dollars for land protection.
