CLA quoted in April 2016 Bay Journal Article

April 13, 2016

CLA’s Matt Henjum is quoted in the front page story in the April Bay Journal on sediment and erosion control.

Matt has been working with others, through the Chesapeake Enforcement Network, to identify opportunities for reducing runoff from construction sites and other exposed locations, and urge counties to reprogram their resources to step up inspections and enforcement. This is a big opportunity to significantly address one of the most serious Bay pollution problems - contaminated sediment runoff - using existing legal requirements.
