The Maryland Department of the Environment will hold a hearing on implementing new regulations designed to limit the amount of nutrients entering the Chesapeake Bay on March 10 at Hagerstown Junior College.
The 7:30 p.m. meeting is scheduled for Room C-11 of the Classroom Building.
The new regulations, called Total Maximum Daily Loads, could force farmers and others to implement nutrient control measures.
One of the streams on the states' priority list for TMDLs is the Antietam Creek in Washington County. According to the state, the creek has excessive nutrients and suspended sediment and not enough dissolved oxygen.
