What to look for on Radio Smart Talk, Monday, October 7, 2013:
Pennsylvania is one of six states and the District of Columbia that have developed Clean Water Blueprints to reduce damage to the Chesapeake Bay.
Pennsylvania's plan includes actions to be taken by farmers, sewage treatment plants, cities, suburban communities, rural towns, and citizens across Pennsylvania's Bay watershed.
At the same time, there are Pennsylvania communities that are using techniques that are more environmentally friendly and utilize "smart growth" - planning communities that provide housing and transportation choices near jobs, shops, and schools. How do those techniques and plans work to keep waterways clean?
Monday's Radio Smart Talk addresses that topic with Pulitzer Prize winning author Tom Hylton and Harry Campbell, Pennsylvania Executive Director of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
For example, the Foundation points out cities like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Lancaster have been using green infrastructure techniques to "beautify communities and to lessen the impacts of polluted stormwater runoff" to keep water cleaner.
Monday's program will focus on communities and water and provide the latest information on the Chesapeake Bay cleanup.
