Floating Wetlands Structure and Impact Emergent wetland species are planted in a buoyant matrix that floats at the water surface. The roots of these plants grow through the matrix and take up the nutrients they need to grow directly from the water, potentially decreasing nutrient concentrations.   diagram,floating,wetlands,water,quality,plants,chesapeake,bay,watershed,stormwater,nutrients

Coastal Wetlands Resilience to Climate Change Comparison Coastal wetlands that are protected from erosion have an adequate sediment supply to build upwards, and will likely be more resilient to the effects of climate change.

Multiple Benefits of Rain Gardens Gutters and downspouts installed onto buildings direct rainwater from roofs to rain gardens. Plants with deep root systems encourage stormwater infiltration and absorbs excess nutrient runoff.

Counteracting Factors Impacting Best Management Practice Implementation  Improvements in water quality can be counteracted by changes in nutrient sources and land-use practices. Increased nutrient loads from stormwater and intensified agriculture often overwhelm the positive effects of best management practices. diagram,counteracting,factors,best,management,practices,water,quality,improvement,challenges

Pervious Surfaces Used to Promote Stormwater Infiltration and Retention  Pervious surfaces, such as modular paver blocks, allow the soil to retain stormwater.  Impervious surfaces prevent the infiltration of stormwater, increasing the volume and velocity of surface runoff.     diagram,pervious,impervious,surfaces,stormwater,infiltration,pavement,pavers,drains

Streambank Fencing Livestock Grazing Management  Streambank fencing is a best management practice that has lead to improved streambank stability, water quality, in-stream habitat, and populations of fish and benthic macroinvertebrates.
