Chesapeake Bay Watershed Implementation Plan TMDL:
The Impact on York & Adams Counties

Pennsylvania reportedly contributes 106.4 million pounds of nitrogen and 3.96 million pounds of phosphorous to the Chesapeake Bay Watershed each year, along with another 1.28 million tons of sediment.  The nitrogen and phosphorous affect the aquaculture of the bay, making it harder for crabs and clams to survive.  The EPA is expected to institute a total maximum daily load or TMDL on how much nutrient and sediment pollution each state is allowed to contribute to the bay watershed by 2025.  The TMDL will have an impact on our municipal authorities, agriculture and future construction in York & Adams Counties. 
 
Lindsay Gerner and John Seitz with the York County Planning Commission will present an update on the Implementation Plan and what the impact will be on York & Adams Counties.
