Webinar Presentation on the Draft Phase 3 Chesapeake Bay WIP May 28th

at 1 PM

Staff of the PA Department of Environmental Protection will unveil the draft Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan for Pennsylvania during a webinar hosted by the Pennsylvania Organization for Watersheds and Rivers (POWR).

Invited speakers from the DEP and other partnering organizations will present an overview of the plan and how it was developed as well as little about the science and data that inform the plan and how it relates to local water quality and planning efforts. Additionally, attendees will learn how to engage in the public comment process and how to stay involved during the county planning and implementation efforts moving forward. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a Q&A session, although official comments will not be accepted at the meeting.

Please see the Agenda for additional details.

The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday May 28 at 1 PM. Registration is required:
