One of the public meetings on a District plan to clean up the Chesapeake Bay watershed (including Rock Creek and its tributaries) is happening this Wednesday at UDC. You can register here. Here’s the notice from UDC’s College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences, which is one of the partners in testing and monitoring the health of local streams:
The District Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) has released a draft Phase III Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP) for the Chesapeake Bay. This cleanup strategy will improve the Chesapeake Bay and District’s rivers and streams. It is available for public comment through June 7, and we want to hear from you!
DOEE is co-hosting a series of public meetings to discuss the Phase III WIP and gather feedback from community members, organizations and businesses on how we can work together to improve the health of our rivers and streams.
For meeting the first meeting, DOEE will be joined by the University of the District of Columbia’s College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES) and Rock Creek Conservancy, two partners supporting the District’s water quality goals through dedicated programming and leadership.
Please register for the meeting to provide your feedback on how DC can meet our water quality goals!
Visit here to read the District’s draft WIP, get information on other public meetings, and submit comments online.
