Senate Environmental Committee Sets Jan. 8 Briefing On PA's Chesapeake Bay Cleanup Obligations

The Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee has scheduled a January 8 briefing on Pennsylvania's Chesapeake Bay cleanup obligations.  The meeting coincides with the 2020 Pennsylvania Farm Show.
The Committee has a lot to talk about, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s determination Pennsylvania’s Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan falls 25 percent short of meeting its nitrogen reduction goal.
Pennsylvania’s failure to meet its obligations means the entire Chesapeake Bay Partnership will fail to meet its 2025 nutrient pollution reduction targets.
For more information on how Pennsylvania plans to meet its Chesapeake Bay cleanup obligations, visit DEP’s PA’s Phase 3 Watershed Implementation Plan webpage.
The meeting will be held at the PA Farm Show Crossroads Conference Center, Erie Room, 2300 North Cameron Street in Harrisburg starting at 9:00 a.m.
