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. The Bay Act recognizes that local governments have the primary responsibility for land use planning and development decisions that have a direct impact on water quality. 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.
Join our panel of experts for this Brock Environmental Learning Series webinar to learn more about the history and future of the Bay Act, and how you can support further shoreline protection and improved water quality.
