PERFORMANCE-BASED PORTFOLIO

This 17 mile stream restoration targets water quality improvements in Little Elk Creek, Little Northeast Creek and a tributary to Principio Creek. EIP is restoring these streams under performance based contracts and will demonstrate actual reductions in nitrogen and phosphorus. These reductions will help improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay, helping reach the goal of clear water, free of impacts of toxic contaminants and healthy oxygen levels.
