On November 19, 2013, the James River Association (JRA) released “Achieving a Healthy James River: Linking Local Cleanup Plans to Chesapeake Bay Water Quality Goals,” a 19-page report prepared by the Center for Watershed Protection in Ellicott City, Md. (the Center for Watershed Protection also has an office in Charlottesville). According to an e-mail notice from JRA, “the study…investigated local bacteria cleanup plans [local Total Maximum Daily Load, or TMDL, plans] in Lynchburg, Richmond, and James City County to determine how the practices included in such plans could be used to meet the requirements of the Chesapeake Bay cleanup. Overall, the study shows that with careful planning, James River watershed localities can fully meet Chesapeake Bay cleanup goals through implementation of local cleanup plans.” An overview of the report, with links to PDFs of the Executive Summary and the full report, is available online at http://jrava.org/what-we-do/achieving-james-river-water-quality-goals. The JRA contact for questions or comments is Adrienne Kotula, phone (804) 788-8811 x206, or e-mail: email@example.com.
