A high ranking official of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency believes the Chesapeake Bay cleanup efforts could be a model for restoration efforts nationwide. Acting Deputy Administrator and General Counsel Scott Fulton says the development of a bay cleanup strategy is worth watching as a sign of new approaches that could be applied to water quality management around the country. President Obama ordered the agency to come up with the strategy. The EPA official also noted at an American Bar Association meeting in Baltimore the impact of pollution from suburban and urban areas, as well as from farms. Fulton says urban and suburban runoff pollution is the fastest growing source of bay pollution, and that it may be the most significant.
