Pennsylvania Local Government Roundtables
The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Delegation of LGAC, hosted Local Government Watershed Roundtables in Pennsylvania’s Chesapeake Bay Watershed between June 2014 and December 2018. The primary goal of the Local Government Watershed Roundtables were to increase the number of elected officials who serve as leaders in watershed protection and more specifically in the Chesapeake Bay watershed restoration effort. This has been accomplished by holding roundtable discussions, exposing elected officials to existing leaders and facilitating peer-to-peer conversations. The roundtables were funded by Pennsylvania's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).

The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, in cooperation with the Virginia Delegation of LGAC, hosted Local Government Watershed Roundtables in Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay Watershed between June 2018 and April 2019. Through peer-to-peer dialogue, LGAC hoped to increase elected officials’ knowledge about watershed protection and restoration and increase local engagement in the development and implementation of Virginia’s Phase III Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP). The roundtables were funded by Virginia's Environmental Endowment.
