Clean water advocates and elected officials urge next Maryland governor to do more to protect the Chesapeake Bay

October 19, 2022

Clean water advocates and several Maryland elected officials met Tuesday morning via Zoom to denounce what they consider the state’s lagging enforcement and inspection measures against polluters, and to call for more accountability from Maryland’s next governor to clean up the Chesapeake Bay. The meeting followed an announcement by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, as well as one from the Environmental Protection Agency, that Maryland and other bay states are not on track to meet the 2025 deadline for reducing pollution in the Chesapeake Bay, a goal established in 2010 by the EPA under the federal Clean Water Act. The cleanup plan is called the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint.
