WITF Radio Smart Talk for Friday, October 15: We'll discuss the new Chesapeake Bay "TMDL."

A TMDL is being developed for the Chesapeake Bay. It will be up and running in the next few months. We'll find out how this TMDL is measured and monitored, and what happens if the Bay exceeds its TMDL. Click here to listen online at 9:00 a.m.
