1 Mid-Atlantic Region Workgroup Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Ohio 1. Maintain the status of 746 subwatersheds classified as healthy by Northern Region = 477 Mid-Atlantic Region = 157 No Change Southern Region = Strengthen brook trout populations in 45 subwatersheds classified as healthy by Actions that strengthen populations include, but are not limited to, habitat enhancement, reducing excessive harvest, increasing distribution within a subwatershed, improving water quality, or reducing exotics. Northern Region = 15 Mid-Atlantic Region = 20 New = 14 Southern Region = Establish self-sustaining brook trout populations in 44 subwatersheds classified as extirpated by Northern Region = 19 Mid-Atlantic Region=10New = 5 Southern Region = 15

2 Mid-Atlantic Region Workgroup Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Ohio 4. Improve 42 reduced subwatersheds to healthy classification by Northern Region = 15 Mid-Atlantic Region = 15 New = 4 Southern Region = Strengthen brook trout populations in 90 subwatersheds classified as reduced by Actions that strengthen populations include, but are not limited to, habitat enhancement, reducing excessive harvest, increasing distribution within a subwatershed, improving water quality, or reducing exotics. Northern Region = 30 Mid-Atlantic Region = 30 New = 45 Southern Region = Maintain 1,372 reduced subwatersheds in existing condition by Northern Region = 505 Mid-Atlantic Region = 678 No Change Southern Region = Validate the predictive brook trout status model by assessing 50% of predicted subwatersheds by Northern Region = 700 Mid-Atlantic Region = 48 No Change Southern Region = 84

3 Mid-Atlantic Region Workgroup Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Ohio Charges: 1) Develop annual action plans that address short-term Regional habitat objectives (identified as four groups – Habitat, Outreach, Research, Admin) 2) Develop accurate estimates of brook trout conservation costs at the state and Regional levels

4 Mid-Atlantic Region Workgroup Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Ohio Habitat 13.8 million thru Hire 4 contractual Biologists (250k/annually) = 1 million -National Forest habitat restoration (400k/annually) = 6.4 million -TU initiatives/partnerships (100k/annually) = 0.4 million -AMD/AML remediation (1.0, 1.0, 2.0, 2.0 million/annually) = 6 million

5 Mid-Atlantic Region Workgroup Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Ohio Outreach 0.25 million thru Hire Regional Outreach coordinator (60k/annually) = 240k Research 1.2 million thru West Virginia (75k/annually) = 300k -Pennsylvania (75k/annually) = 300k -Maryland (75k/annually) = 300k -New Jersey (75k/annually) = 300k Administration 0.4 million thru (100k/annually) = 400k

6 Mid-Atlantic Region Workgroup Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New Jersey, Maryland, Ohio Total Funding Needed thru 2012 = million 2009 = 3.41 million 2010 = 3.41 million 2011 = 4.41 million 2012 = 4.41 million
