Chesapeake Bay Initiative: Lessons Learned
25th Fall Conference
10:30 AM - 12:00 PM ET
The last time the Fall Conference was held in Baltimore, a session focused on the underlying legal authority and challenges of the EPA’s historic Chesapeake Bay Initiative, established in 2010 and, at the time, being challenged in federal court. Now, seven years into the program, a panel of regulators, policy advisors, and lawyers will discuss lessons learned and how they can be applied in other jurisdictions. Panelists will examine the program’s successes and failures; its impacts on industry, agriculture, and communities; and other TMDL implementations nationwide as well as the Trump administration’s approach to water quality restoration and enforcement in general.
