Nutrient Management Act Needs Improvement
The Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club is delighted that steps are being taken to strengthen the state’s water quality, including Delaware’s Nutrient Management Act (Title 3 Delaware Code Chapter 22), the purpose of which is:
To regulate those activities involving the generation and application of nutrients in order to help improve and maintain the quality of Delaware's ground and surface waters and to meet or exceed federally mandated water quality standards, in the interest of the overall public welfare (Title 3 Delaware Code §2201).
