Did you know that polluters are trying to delay or overturn a landmark law that will prevent tens of millions of gallons of polluted runoff from flowing into our rivers, streams and bays? It’s true. These polluters are doing everything to can to turn back the clock on the Watershed Protection and Restoration Act. And, some legislators in Annapolis are listening.

In 1983, 1987 and 2000, Maryland Governors and their counterparts in Virginia, the District of Columbia and other jurisdictions in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed signed formal agreements that set timelines for cleaning up the Bay. The most recent agreement called for deadlines that were to be met by 2010. That deadline will not be met. Clean Water Action supported the strongest possible version of this latest agreement, understanding that we would continue fighting for the enforcement of the Clean Water Act as the likeliest means restoring the Bay.
