Chesapeake Bay Stakeholder Input on Proposed Rulemaking

Stakeholder Input on Stormwater Rulemaking Related to the Chesapeake Bay

EPA solicited input specifically on Chesapeake Bay-specific provisions of a new stormwater rulemaking (see Federal Register Notice PDF (5 pp, 68KB)). Written comments and any supporting data were due by December 7, 2010. EPA held seven public "listening sessions" to request input from the public. At each stormwater listening session, EPA summarized potential provisions of the stormwater rulemaking with respect to the Chesapeake Bay watershed and members of the public were able to make 3 minute statements to EPA. A general Q&A session followed. As part of the listening sessions, EPA also addressed environmental justice considerations and potential impacts and benefits that may arise as a consequence of the rulemaking. The environmental justice discussion included a presentation from EPA and a discussion with the group on environmental justice considerations.
