Montgomery County Joined the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government’s Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week

Montgomery County joined local governments and water utilities across the metropolitan region in celebrating the week of June 4–12 as Chesapeake Bay Awareness Week. The Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG) and Water Resources Policy Committee (CBPC) designated the week to focus on the success of local governments and water utilities in reducing pollutants entering the Bay and to improve water quality.

County Councilmember Craig Rice, chairman for the Metropolitan Washington COG and CBPC, prepared a Bay Journal op-ed called Metropolitan Washington: Local Leaders in Chesapeake Bay Restoration Efforts, which highlighted local efforts to protect the Bay.

Montgomery County meets some of the strictest requirements for controlling stormwater pollution and implements innovative techniques and best practices to protect and sustain our watersheds, which have direct connection to our greater waterways including the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers and the Chesapeake Bay.
