  • RussWe all know in general why we’re here: we want to restore and protect the Chesapeake and its watershed.More specifically, though, an essential part of that task is to assure that new projects, of whatever nature, and by whomever sponsored, from damaging the watershed. I would guess all of you considers that part of your mission. The purpose of this session is to help you with that effort.
