The PA State Team helping to guide the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan is scheduled to hold a virtual meeting on January 26 to hear an update from state agencies and counties about Pennsylvania’s water quality cleanup efforts in the Pennsylvania portion of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

On the agenda is Jill Whitcomb, Director of DEP’s Chesapeake Bay Office will provide highlights from the State Progress Report submitted to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on January 14.
