On March 1, 2023, Franklin County Conservation District (FCCD) hosted a Winter Ag meeting with guest speakers from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Meeting attendees enjoyed an interactive question-and-answer session with EPA reps, led by Adam Ortiz, EPA Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator. Throughout the day, topics ranged from legacy sediment to today’s agricultural regulations. Franklin County’s water quality trends and successful BMP Verification Program were highlighted during discussions regarding Chesapeake Bay nutrient reduction progress. In addition to the meeting, FCCD facilitated a focus group with local farmers in the morning, a stream tour to spotlight a recent success story, and an additional focus group with municipal leaders in the afternoon.
