PA cabinet secretaries on Chesapeake cleanup

On July 20, 2017

Three state cabinet secretaries appear on Thursday’s Smart Talk to discuss Pennsylvania’s renewed efforts to do its part in the Chesapeake Bay clean-up.  Appearing on the program are Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection Patrick McDonnell, Cindy Dunn, Secretary of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Department of Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding.
The Chesapeake Bay is known for a lot of things. Along with its Blue Crabs, oysters and status as the largest estuary in the United States–it is also notoriously dirty. Clean water standards have been historically disagreed upon, but for the first time in decades, things might be looking up for the Blue crabs and watershed residents.
