EPA is setting a strict, binding “pollution diet” to restore the Chesapeake Bay and local waters.

Its impact will stretch from upstate New York to the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, affecting six states and the District of Columbia.

The diet, formally known as a Total Maximum Daily Load, or TMDL, will be established by the end of this year with key milestones between now and then.

Each month, EPA and a special guest or two are providing online updates on the Bay TMDL via webinar. Hundreds of people are tuning in to each session. It’s easy to connect.

The next webinar is scheduled for Thursday, July 8 at 10 a.m. In addition to our EPA experts, we will get an update on Delaware’s plan and how the state is moving ahead on a plan to meet reduced pollution levels.

Do you have other suggestions on how EPA can get the word out about this novel initiative?
