The second phase of the EPA's plan to curb pollution in the Chesapeake will create requirements for local jurisdictions.

State Secretary of Natural Resources Doug Domenech says that the meeting will include the governors of Maryland and Pennsylvania, the mayor of Washington, D.C., and the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency. A similar meeting was held in 2010 in Baltimore.

Domenech made the announcement at a wide-ranging news briefing on the progress of the administration's environmental initiatives. He says the administration is about to begin the second phase of its Bay Watershed Improvement Plan, and that it has conserved more than 60,000 acres of land.
