Chesapeake Bay TMDL Draft Phase III Watershed Implementation Plan is now available.  

The comment period is now open and will end June 7, 2019. 

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality invites review and recommendations during the comment period by all stakeholders and the general public. Through your collective input, we anticipate building an even stronger, final Phase III WIP. All comments received on or before June 7, 2019, will be considered.
