Delmarva Today 10-14-2011 Watershed Implementation Plan

The Environmental Protection Agency has ordered that the Chesapeake Bay go on what's called a "pollution diet".  

 

Maryland counties have been charged with developing a Water Implementation Plan . They have until November 18th to submit a draft of their plans to the Maryland Dept. of the Environment.

 

Meanwhile, the EPA's plans have also drawn opposition with a lawsuit filled by the American Farm Bureau Federation.

 

Guests:

Alan Girard- Senior Land Use Policy Manager at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation

Jim Newcomb- District manager for the Dorchester Soil Conservation District

William Layton- Owner and operator of Lazy Day Farms and President of the Dorchester County Farm Bureau.
