The Environmental Protection Agency is taking its plan to restore the Chesapeake Bay to Richmond. The public meeting this evening at the University of Richmond is one in a series scheduled in Virginia by the agency, which plans to put the bay on a "pollution diet."

At a meeting Monday night in Harrisonburg, hundreds of farmers and business owners said they were fearful they would be burdened with the costs of cleaning the bay.

Environmentalists point to animal waste and field runoff as major contributors to the bay's decline, and they say the EPA must pressure Virginia to comply. The state has balked at buying into the EPA's restoration plan.
