  • The Bay Act: Current, Past, and Future

    Virginia's Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act, known as the "Bay Act," was enacted more than 30 years ago to curb nutrient and sediment pollution to the Chesapeake Bay through sound land-use practices that minimize the disturbance and development of environmentally-sensitive coastal areas. Proposed new regulations under the Bay Act are being fleshed out right now to encourage and promote the preservation and planting of trees, as well as adaptation to sea-level rise and climate change impacts.
