Maryland Waterways Want You!

Maryland Waterways Want You!

Speak up for Maryland waterways since they can’t speak up for themselves!

From Blue Water Baltimore:

Watch That WIP!

The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) will be hosting meetings around the state to take comments on recently filed Watershed Implementation Plans (WIPs). The MDE is under pressure from all sides to weaken the WIPs, which detail how to reduce the pollution that flows through our waterways and into the Bay.

We have a HUGE opportunity with the comment period coming up, Jan. 15 – Mar. 1. We need volunteers to attend the in-person meetings hosted by MDE and the Agro-Ecology Center and offer comments about how important it is to have strong WIPs. You do NOT need to be an expert– being a concerned citizen who simply shows up and goes on the record is of enormous importance! If you have even an inkling of interest, email Mike Aaron or call 410-254- 1577 x107 (he gets very excited when he gets calls).
