Pennsylvania River2009 Executive Order to Protect and Restore the Chesapeake Bay

The US Environmental Protection Agency is holding a series of public forums in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. There are two pieces of policy being discussed, and two series of meetings - one series of meetings is regarding the US EPA's overall strategies, while the other is regarding the actual numbers that they'll use to measure the levels of pollution in the water. Check out our Chesapeake Bay Restoration Plan Timeline [pdf] to learn about the process, or our Executive Order page to find out why its a big deal for farmers.

If you go to a meeting, don't forget to PRINT OUT THESE TALKING POINTS [pdf] to ensure that agriculture's needs are met as the EPA creates new strategies for restoring the Bay!
