In the interest of maintaining transparency in the process, DEP has opened the Phase 3 Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP) Workgroup meetings to the public. These meetings are informal and are held at the convenience of the Workgroup Chairs and members. Meeting space is limited, but every effort will be made to provide room for the public to attend.
We have asked the Workgroup Co-Chairpersons to:
We ask the public to identify themselves at the beginning of the meeting if they participate in a Workgroup meeting held by conference call.
- Provide the date and time of a Workgroup meeting to PA DEP once established. These will be posted to the website at the beginning of each month. Additional dates will be posted for that month as they become available.
- Work with DEP to post the date, time and location of each Workgroup meeting on this webpage below. [NOTE: Some meetings may change due to the needs of the members, so please check back to the site regularly if you plan to attend any meeting].
- Allow 5 minutes at the end of each Workgroup meeting for the public to speak. This is a long-held practice by PA DEP Workgroups and allows opportunity for additional and less formal public input into the WIP process.
Minutes of Workgroup meetings are not formally maintained, but DEP will continue to publish minutes from the Steering Committee meetings.
If you have any questions, please contact either Kristen Wolf or Veronica Kasi in the PA DEP Chesapeake Bay Program Office.
