The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), its co-plaintiffs, and the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on May 11, 2010, settled their lawsuit with a binding agreement that will require pollution to be reduced across the watershed. This historic settlement is a legally enforceable commitment that requires EPA to take specific actions by dates certain to ensure that pollution to local rivers, streams, and the Chesapeake Bay is reduced sufficiently to remove the Bay from the federal "dirty waters" list.
