Will the Mayor’s Regulations Help Our Rivers?
by Chris Weiss, Executive Director, DC Environmental Network
The DC Environmental Network invites All Metro-Based Environmentalists to Our Monthly Brown-Bag Discussion:
Environmental Community Responds to Mayor Gray’s Stormwater Regulations
- Jennifer Chavez, Earthjustice
- Rebecca Hammer, Natural Resources Defense Council
- Chris Weiss, DC Environmental Network
Earlier this month the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) delivered formal comments to Mayor Vincent Gray’s District Department of the Environment (DDOE). These coalition comments were designed to help the District promulgate stormwater regulations that are critical to helping improve the health of the Anacostia River, Potomac River and Rock Creek; provide social and economic benefits to District communities; and ultimately green our nation’s capital city.
These comments were joined by American Rivers, Anacostia Watershed Citizens Advisory Council, Anacostia Watershed Society, Audubon Naturalist Society, Chesapeake Bay Foundation, DC Environmental Network, Global Green USA and the National Wildlife Federation.
On December 6th at Noon, join the environmental community in an open discussion about Mayor Gray’s proposed rules and why the District needs to make up for lost time and finish adopting strong stormwater regulations.
All are welcome. RSVP for this event HERE!
