DEP Hosts July 10 Webinar On County-Level Planning To Develop Chesapeake Bay Water Quality Improvement Plans

The Department of Environmental Protection Thursday announced it will host a live webinar on July 10 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. to discuss county-level participation in developing Phase 3 of Pennsylvania’s Watershed Implementation Plan to improve stream and river health to benefit local communities in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
The webinar, open to the public, will outline the overall approach to the local planning framework and timeline. With the collaboration of stakeholders throughout the region, the planning goals are being developed at the county level.
Secretary Patrick McDonnell and DEP staff will discuss the overall framework of the plan.
Lisa Schaefer, Director of Government Relations at the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania and member of the PA Chesapeake Bay Watershed Planning Steering Committee, will discuss the Community Clean Water Toolbox, a package of customized information to help counties with their planning efforts.
Four counties are pilot-testing it this summer-- Adams, Franklin, Lancaster and York counties.
A Q&A for accredited media will follow the presentations.
