The City Encourages Your Comments on Its Plan to Help Clean the Chesapeake Bay

The City of Manassas will accept public comments on its “Chesapeake Bay TMDL Action Plan” from October 16 to October 31, 2019. The City will post this draft plan (to view or download), beginning on October 16, on its stormwater plans webpage.

Virginia, and the other four states draining into the Chesapeake Bay, signed a legally binding compact to protect the Bay from excessive pollutants. This compact establishes aggressive targets for pollutant reductions. This “TMDL Action Plan” outlines the strategies that the City of Manassas plans to use to do its part in meeting these broader Chesapeake Bay goals, targets, and requirements.
