Watershed protection and restoration plan public hearing scheduled for June 7
The Charles County Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the draft Watershed Protection and Restoration Program Financial Assurance Plan during the county commissioners meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 7, at the Charles County Government Building, 200 Baltimore St., La Plata.
This plan is prepared in accordance with Senate Bill 863 (2015 session); codified in COMAR, Subsection 4-202.1, and is required to be filed with the Maryland Department of the Environment on or prior to July 1.
The plan includes five elements specified in COMAR, which are generally described as: actions necessary to meet the national pollutant discharge elimination system Phase I municipal separate storm sewer system permit; projected costs and revenues to meet the permit’s impervious surface restoration requirements; sources of funds to meet the overall permit requirements; and specific actions and expenditures implemented in previous fiscal years to meet the permit’s impervious surface restoration requirements.
The draft document will be available beginning Friday, June 3, on the county’s Boarddocs website under the agenda for June 7: www.boarddocs.com/md/chrlsco/Board.nsf/Public.
