We support an transparency in our state's regulatory programs and an amendment to the Nutrient Management Act that would remove the Freedom of Information Act exemption.
May 14: Club Forum, Nutrient Management and Water Quality
We gathered in Dover to discuss the State of Delaware's efforts to manage nutrients from contaminating water bodies. Club member Bill Moyer, President of the Inland Bays Foundation, described an alarming situation in which nutrient management plans are exempted from public inspection in Delaware law. This renders the effectiveness of our Nutrient Management Act suspect, as the benchmarks for evaluating the programs impact by disclosing the details of individual nutrient management plans are protected from a public discourse.
Delawareans must be environmental advocates, by Bill Moyer
