EPA launches its “Healthy Waters of the Mid-Atlantic” blog

I’d like to invite you to our new “Healthy Waters of the Mid-Atlantic” blog, which is designed to bring new voices and perspectives to our work in restoring and protecting water resources in EPA’s Mid-Atlantic region. “Healthy Waters” is one of the Mid Atlantic Region’s top priorities, and your ideas will help advise EPA teams working on the next generation of water protection practices. You should expect a new entry each week.

“Healthy Waters” recognizes that it takes partnerships to build on our progress in achieving clean water. By engaging and commenting on this blog, you will have a unique opportunity to help us tackle some of the most current and challenging water protection issues of the 21st century.

If you would like to learn more about our Healthy Waters Priority and its four areas of focus – agriculture, land, mining and transportation – please see our Healthy Waters Website.

Thanks for visiting. We value your feedback and look forward to reading your comments.
