Federal agencies seek feedback on 2013 action plan for Chesapeake Bay cleanup

The federal agencies leading the watershed-wide endeavor to restore the Chesapeake Bay are seeking feedback on a draft action plan that outlines next year’s cleanup efforts.

From increasing public access to the Bay and its rivers to boosting conservation practices on farms and private lands, the action plan is meant to meet the goals set forth in the federal Strategy for Protecting and Restoring the Bay, which in 2009 called for the restoration and protection of the watershed.

Some of the proposed restoration plans are extensions of established projects, while others are new initiatives.

The action plan is open for public comment through November 27. Comments can be submitted through an online feedback form.

Learn more about the action plan on the Chesapeake Bay Executive Order website.
