The objectives of the STAC Lag Time Workshop were to (1) provide the CBP with a better understanding of the factors affecting the 'lag time' associated with improving water quality and SAV in the Bay and (2) provide recommendations for improved monitoring and modeling of these factors. By holding this workshop in 2004, the information will be available for use to help improve development of monitoring and modeling approaches and implementation of tributary strategies. The workshop included sessions for each of the major 'lag time' components: The time between planning and implementation of a management practice; The influence of watershed properties on movement of nutrients and sediment to the Bay; and The time between a load reduction to the Bay and the actual improvement in water quality and SAV.
