Pennsylvania's Chesapeake Bay State Team (formerly the PA Steering Committee) Meets January 30 In Harrisburg
The renamed Pennsylvania Chesapeake Bay State Team is scheduled to meet January 30 in Room 105 of the Rachel Carson Building in Harrisburg from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.
The agenda, broadly, is expected to include--
-- Review and discuss progress on Pennsylvania’s Phase 3 Watershed Implementation Plan
-- Review the Phase 3 WIP implementation strategy
-- Define roles and expectations for the State Team and Action Leaders
-- Outline next steps and timeline for success
This is the first meeting of the group that lead the stakeholder-driven Pennsylvania Clean Water Planning process to meet the Commonwealth's Chesapeake Bay cleanup obligations since the state’s Plan was submitted to EPA.
It will also be the first meeting for Jill Whitcomb, the new Director of DEP’s Chesapeake Bay Office.
Whitcomb served as DEP’s representative on the critical Chesapeake Bay Steering Committee Agriculture Workgroup in the Phase III planning process and before that on the Wetlands and Stormwater Workgroups.
She also helped manage DEP regulatory programs that address compliance with agriculture and stormwater regulations and requirements, including: NPDES construction, MS4 stormwater pollution prevention program, and CAFO livestock farms; erosion and sedimentation control; post-construction stormwater management; manure management and nutrient management.
Whitcomb has worked at DEP since 2014. Prior to that service, she was an Agriculture Conservation Technician for the Lancaster County Conservation District for nearly 5 years and as an Agronomy Laboratory Technician before that in the private sector.
