CFB to Discuss Efforts to Reduce Pollution


The Blair Garden Club has invited the public to its 6:30 p.m. meeting on Monday, May 20, at the American Legion Memorial Park in Hollidaysburg.

B.J. Small, Media and Communications coordinator for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in Pennsylvania, will talk about the Commonwealth’s efforts to reduce polluted runoff, stormwater challenges, hellbenders, an effort to plant 10 million trees and PA’s Phase III Watershed Implementation Plan.

The U.S. Environmental Protection mandates nitrogen and phosphorus reductions by 2025 to improve local water quality, streams and rivers, and to restore the Bay. Blair County is one of the 43 counties in the state that lie in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

According to Small, local and state pollution-reduction activities not only help the Bay, they enhance native water resources.

There will be no charge to attend the meeting or for parking.
