Chesapeake Bay Commission Releases New Policy Report

The tri-state legislative Chesapeake Bay Commission (CBC) has released its new policy report on agriculture technical assistance, “Boots on the Ground: Improving Technical Assistance for Farmers”. The report documents the escalating need for more technical assistance to guide farmers in planning and installing pollution control practices.   The VASWCD served as the voice of the Districts in discussions and during the development of this report.

As noted by Commission Chairman State Representative Garth Everett (R-PA), “With the overwhelming amount of reliance on agriculture to help clean up the Bay, there simply aren’t enough ‘boots on the ground’ to provide the help needed to farmers to get the job done.”  The importance of adequate and dedicated funding for local Soil and Water Conservation Districts to support the strong farm conservation efforts cannot be overstated.
