Governor Larry Hogan today held a second Conowingo Dam Summit in Darlington, Maryland, where he hosted state and local officials, regional partners, and members of the scientific, research, and environmental advocacy communities to discuss solutions to the growing threat posed to the Chesapeake Bay by sediment flowing through the Dam. Earlier in the morning, the governor addressed a seminar sponsored by the National Governors Association’s Water Policy Learning Network, which he co-chairs along with California Governor Jerry Brown.

Following the summit, the governor was joined by Maryland Secretary of Natural Resources Mark Belton, Secretary of the Environment Ben Grumbles, Secretary of Planning Wendi Peters, Maryland Energy Administration Director Dr. Mary Beth Tung, and Maryland Environmental Service Director Roy McGrath, as well as Harford County Executive Barry Glassman and Cecil County Executive Dr. Alan McCarthy to deliver an update on the administration’s next step to address this critical water quality issue.
