Land Conservation Strategies- Steve Sylvester

  1. 1. Statement of the ProblemThe Chesapeake Bay TMDL requires a reduction in nitrogen, phosphorous andsediment loadings from Lancaster County watersheds to the ChesapeakeBay. The population of Lancaster County and population of the Bay watershedare growing. Financial resources to address water quality issues are becomingscarcer and efforts to reduce pollutant loads are scattered and not welldocumented. If Pennsylvania is not able to demonstrate significant reductionsin pollutant loadings from urban, suburban and rural point and non-pointsources we are likely to experience more restrictive environmental regulationswhich may lead to constraints on new development and increase the costs ofsewer services and housing in general. More restrictive regulations will alsoincrease development pressure in rural areas, increase farm operating costs,reduce the viability of the agricultural economy and impede theimplementation of Balance.From: Lancaster County Planning Commission Integrated Water Resources Plan, WaterQuality Group, Draft, 2011.
