View these draft documents from the Chesapeake Bay Program. The document explains how an Expert Panel has described four general protocols to define the pollutant load reductions associated with individual stream restoration projects. The report also includes examples to show users how to apply each protocol in the appropriate manner. In addition, the Panel recommended several important qualifying conditions and environmental considerations for stream restoration projects to ensure they produce functional uplift for local streams. urban_stream_restoration_panel_CBP final_report_12062012
