FAIRFAX --Virginia has met six of nine two-year goals for restoring the Chesapeake Bay, environmental advocates said today.
Leaders of the federal and state bay cleanup established the two-year goals, or milestones, in 2009 to better gauge the progress of the decades-long restoration.
“Virginia has made considerable progress in meeting its first bay milestones,” said Ann Jennings, Virginia director of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, an environmental group.
