U.S. EPA Withholds Grant Money From Virginia Due to Chesapeake Bay Cleanup Efforts

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is withholding $1.2 million in grant money from Virginia, which was originally supposed to receive $2.4 million for Chesapeake Bay cleanup efforts. EPA cited a lack of progress in reducing stormwater runoff from urban areas through strong and enforceable permits. Virginia is addressing weak points in the state’s stormwater program and can reapply for the funding after making improvements.
