Is Maryland risking over reaching its groundwater resources?

The state's Senate Education, Health and Environment Committee met in Annapolis on Tuesday to discuss Senate Bill 499, which allows developers to claim surrounding land as a groundwater recharge area, even if it is owned by another private party or government agency.

The bill concerns Jenn Aiosa, Maryland Senior Scientist for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, who said that the bill introduced by Sen. David Brinkley (R-District 4), Sen. Donald Munson (R-District 2) and Sen. Larry Haines (R-District 5) is not a reasonable solution(The Daily Banner)
