Maryland Assessment Scenario Tool (MAST) was first developed in 2011 by Olivia H.
Devereux and Jessica R. Rigelman with initial funding from the Maryland Department
of the Environment. The immediate need was to provide local jurisdictions, such
as counties, with a tool to provide input into the TMDL WIP process.
With continued funding from the U.S. EPA, the functionality of
MAST has been expanded
to serve multiple needs for environmental planning in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
Future enhancements are developed with input from the states and local jurisdictions,
the Chesapeake Bay Program, and the EPA. The tool will continue to evolve to meet
the needs of users.
