Polluted Runoff—What Is It? What Can We Do About It?
Did you know that just one inch of rain falling on one acre of paved surface equals 27,000 gallons of pollution flowing into our rivers, streams, and the Bay?
Please join CBF President Will Baker and Vice President for Environmental Protection and Restoration Kim Coble for a conference call about CBF's report, Polluted Runoff: How Investing in Runoff Pollution Control Systems Improves the Chesapeake Bay Region's Ecology, Economy, and Health, on Wednesday, January 29, at 1:00 p.m.
Polluted runoff is the only major source of pollution that is still growing in our area—because the amount of land covered by parking lots, roads, roofs, and driveways continues to increase. CBF's report details the problems created by this pollution and offers steps that local, state, and federal governments can take to reduce pollution in our communities and our waterways.
It's free to participate but please register below so we know to expect you. The call will last 40 minutes; it will begin with an update and then we'll take questions from those of you on the line.
If there are additional questions after the call, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-SAVEBAY (728-3229).
