The Bay Facility Assessment Scenario Tool (BayFAST) is intended for estimating baseline loads of nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment and reductions in loads that would occur from the implementation of additional management practices at the facility scale. The loading outputs from BayFAST will not directly match loads from the Chesapeake Bay Program Watershed Model, which are one part of tracking overall progress made by Chesapeake Bay Program partners. BayFAST should be used for planning and reporting purposes and as a method for estimating facility progress on meeting local pollutant reduction targets.
