IAN Seminar Series 2017

The goal of the IAN seminar series is to provide concise, thought-provoking ideas relating to Chesapeake Bay science and management. Short presentations (15 minutes maximum length) are immediately followed by a lunchtime discussion of the topics raised by the presenter. The discussion is summarized and is posted along with a pdf version of the seminar slides. The seminars are captured on video and posted under a Creative Commons license so they can be freely shared.

The National Urban Waters Federal Partnership is comprised of 13 Federal Departments, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and U.S. Department of the Interior, among others. The Urban Waters Federal Partnership, formally launched in Baltimore in 2011, was developed to reconnect economically underserved urban communities with their waterways by improving coordination among federal agencies and organizations at all levels of government. The USDA Forest Service is the lead agency on the Baltimore Urban Waters Federal Partnership (BUWP). The BUWP has organized with many local agencies and organizations to develop plans and strategic actions in four topical areas with subcommittees for each over the last five years: (1) Local restoration and best management projects, (2) Spatial mapping information and tools, (3) The Green Pattern Book, and (4) Monitoring, modeling, and research. The goals of the Monitoring, Modeling, and Research topic subcommittee are to enhance communication between partners on monitoring needs, and provide technical leadership on water-related issues such as improved water quality, flood hazards, and water supply in urban areas. The subcommittee has hosted two workshops (summer 2014, late winter 2016) for the water monitoring community that inventoried monitoring assets in the Baltimore region and identified data gaps and provided recommendations for follow up. From these recommendations, a collaborative retrospective trends analysis project was proposed and funded to specifically address some of the high priority data gaps identified during the 2014 workshop. The 2016 workshop was organized to provide a feedback loop from researchers to practitioners in specific areas of interest identified via surveys of the attendants, and also to allow for feedback from jurisdictions to researchers and practitioners to identify areas of need and possible collaboration.

Abstract

The National Urban Waters Federal Partnership is comprised of 13 Federal Departments, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and U.S. Department of the Interior, among others. The Urban Waters Federal Partnership, formally launched in Baltimore in 2011, was developed to reconnect economically underserved urban communities with their waterways by improving coordination among federal agencies and organizations at all levels of government. The USDA Forest Service is the lead agency on the Baltimore Urban Waters Federal Partnership (BUWP). The BUWP has organized with many local agencies and organizations to develop plans and strategic actions in four topical areas with subcommittees for each over the last five years: (1) Local restoration and best management projects, (2) Spatial mapping information and tools, (3) The Green Pattern Book, and (4) Monitoring, modeling, and research. The goals of the Monitoring, Modeling, and Research topic subcommittee are to enhance communication between partners on monitoring needs, and provide technical leadership on water-related issues such as improved water quality, flood hazards, and water supply in urban areas. The subcommittee has hosted two workshops (summer 2014, late winter 2016) for the water monitoring community that inventoried monitoring assets in the Baltimore region and identified data gaps and provided recommendations for follow up. From these recommendations, a collaborative retrospective trends analysis project was proposed and funded to specifically address some of the high priority data gaps identified during the 2014 workshop. The 2016 workshop was organized to provide a feedback loop from researchers to practitioners in specific areas of interest identified via surveys of the attendants, and also to allow for feedback from jurisdictions to researchers and practitioners to identify areas of need and possible collaboration.
