Last week, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection released a draft Watershed Implementation Plan (the “WIP”) outlining Pennsylvania’s plan to reduce pollution in our local waterways and meet the expectations of the Chesapeake Bay cleanup strategy, officially called a total maximum daily load or TMDL. The federal Clean Water Act requires the cleanup plan because the Bay is officially listed as “dirty” and pollution has prevented fishing or swimming. While we don’t expect you to the read the 175-page draft, we will read it. Expect to hear more from us about how to get involved in shaping the cleanup plan or contact us about an upcoming webinar to learn more. It’s time to whip this watershed into shape.
