PSATS Submits Comments on Conowingo Dam WIP
PSATS submitted comments to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the Conowingo Watershed Implementation Plan to address the sediment discharges to the Chesapeake Bay from the Conowingo Dam.
The letter asked for the EPA to support the creation of a wider menu of cost-effective financing options, including the development of credit trading to maximize the reduction in pollutants and sediments without bankrupting communities and shutting down economic growth. In addition, the letter urged any effort to impose reductions in nutrient or sediment discharges to equitably allocate responsibility between point and non-point sources on a proportionate basis to their discharges.
