Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says US EPA is holding 15 public meetings to discuss TMDL levels for Chesapeake Bay.

US EPA held two public meetings in West Virginia last week to discuss the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) – a strict “pollution diet” to restore the Chesapeake Bay and its vast network of local rivers, streams and creeks. 
 
Altogether, EPA will hold 15 public meetings on the Chesapeake Bay TMDL throughout the watershed’s six states and the District of Columbia from early November through mid-December 2009. A complete list of the meetings, along with driving directions to each location, is available at http://www.epa.gov/chesapeakebaytmdl.   

The Chesapeaeke Bay TMDL will establish and assign the pollution reductions necessary to meet clean water standards. The TMDL will be supported by performance and accountability features to ensure needed actions are taken.
