State Requirements

The Chesapeake Bay region includes parts of six states – Delaware, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia – and the entire District of Columbia. The Clean Water Act requires each of these jurisdictions to regulate stormwater runoff and to implement programs to manage and control stormwater.

The Clean Water Act’s underlying framework is relatively simple in concept. The Act’s goal is to keep our waterbodies clean enough for fishing, swimming and other recreational uses.
