Chesapeake Bay Restoration Goals Released

Play associated audio

BALTIMORE (AP) The Chesapeake Bay Program is inviting the public to comment on draft goals and outcomes for bay restoration efforts.

The bay program says public feedback will be used to finalize the goals and outcomes, which will be paired with the final bay restoration strategy to be released by May 12.

The federal agency is developing a restoration strategy in response to an executive order last year by President Obama. A draft strategy released in November includes expanded regulation of large-scale animal farms and urban-suburban stormwater runoff, but leaves room for states to cut pollution before expansion of federal regulation. Critics complained the plan lacked details.

The goals and outcomes can now be viewed on the bay program's executive orderwebsite.
