The Chesapeake Bay Foundation says cleanup efforts received a significant boost in funding from this year’s General Assembly, and is on track for a complete restoration by 2025.
The General Assembly approved almost $62 million to help farmers with better practices. Peggy Sanner, Attorney for Chesapeake Bay Foundation says that’s double last year’s allocation.
There is $59 million to improve wastewater treatment plants. Hanover will get $157,000, Richmond $3.5 million and Hopewell $35 million over the next three years.
