ADVISORY – TUESDAY – DEP to Host Live Webinar to Discuss County-Level Planning to Improve Stream and River Health in Pennsylvania Communities in Chesapeake Bay Watershed

 

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will host a live webinar to discuss county-level participation in developing Phase 3 of Pennsylvania’s Watershed Implementation plan to improve stream and river health to benefit local communities in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

 

The webinar, open to the public, will outline the overall approach to the local planning framework and timeline. With the collaboration of stakeholders throughout the region, the planning goals are being developed at the county level.

 

Secretary Patrick McDonnell and DEP staff will discuss the overall framework of the plan and Lisa Schaefer, Director of Government Relations at the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania and member of the Phase 3 plan Steering Committee, will discuss the Community Clean Water Toolbox, a package of customized information to help counties with their planning efforts. Four counties are pilot-testing it this summer.

 

A federal mandate from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires Pennsylvania to reduce sediment and nutrient loads in streams and rivers in the watershed to meet specific goals by 2025.

 

A Q&A for accredited media will follow the presentations. Registration is required for the webinar.
