PA Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan Steering Committee Meets May 8

The PA Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Planning Steering Committee meets for the second time on May 8 to continue discussing Pennsylvania’s plans for developing Phase III Watershed Plans to meet Chesapeake Bay cleanup requirements.
At its first meeting on April 3, members of the Committee discussed the lack of resources to meet current nutrient and sediment reduction goals and the new milestones coming as early as June that will mean even more nutrient and sediment reductions will be needed in Pennsylvania.
The Steering Committee will coordinate the work of at least 6 workgroups each with 10 or so members to come up with the watershed implementation plan strategy.
The initial, draft Game Plan for Success reviewed by the Committee at its first meeting calls for the workgroups to be put together in April and May and have a kick-off Watershed Implementation Plan Conference on June 5 in Harrisburg to solicit ideas for what should be in the Plan.
The Committee will meet in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson Building from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.   Click Here to register to listen to the meeting online.
