Federal agencies show progress in efforts to restore Chesapeake Bay

March 28 2013

The Federal Leadership Committee for the Chesapeake Bay issued its Fiscal Year 2012 Progress Report, highlighting extensive efforts undertaken last year by seven federal agencies charged with helping to protect and restore the health of the Chesapeake Bay. 

“EPA and our other federal partners are pleased to report the tangible progress we’ve made over the past year, which will inform, guide and accelerate our collective actions going forward,” said Nick DiPasquale, Chesapeake Bay Program Director.  “The federal agencies and our partner jurisdictions are accountable to the citizens living near the local rivers and streams that also stand to benefit from this critical restoration work.  Through our commitments, the prospects for increased momentum and improvements to the Bay’s health should be encouraging to everyone.”

Federal agencies included in this report are the Environmental Protection Agency and the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Interior, and Transportation.
