    Watershed Implementation Plan public meetings scheduled


    Loudoun residents will have a chance to give their input on the county's response to Phase II of the state's Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP) at several public input sessions in May.

    The WIP is a roadmap for reducing the amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment that enters the Chesapeake Bay from its watershed, according to the Loudoun County public information office.

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has required each state with waters draining into the Chesapeake Bay to submit a Watershed Implementation Plan. Additionally, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation requested that localities, including Loudoun County, submit a plan outlining how local pollution reduction goals for nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment could be met.

    Residents will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide input on the Loudoun pollution reduction plan during three open house-style meetings at the following dates and locations:

    -May 9 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Ashburn Library, 43316 Hay Road, Ashburn
    -May 14 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Cascades Library, 21030 Whitfield Place, Potomac Falls
    -May 16, 2013, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., Purcellville Town Hall, 221 South Nursery Avenue, Purcellville

    Detailed information on Phase II WIP is available on the Loudoun County website at http://www.loudoun.gov/wip.
