Odyssey: Missing in Action—The Political Courage to Save the Chesapeake Bay

Following the 1972 federal Clean Water Act, the EPA, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia signed the 1983 Chesapeake Bay Agreement, reinforced in 1987 and 1992, to clean up the Bay by 2000. After Delaware and West Virginia joined the effort, a new goal of 2010 was announced, and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley created BayStat to monitor the initiative. When that deadline passed, New York and the other states adopted the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint in 2014 to progressively reduce pollutant levels until 2025. Various updates have followed, including a University of Maryland study in 2020 that dropped the Bay's health rating from a C to a C-minus. What comes next? Join us for a comprehensive discussion on the future of the Chesapeake Bay! For a list of all presenters, click here.
