Enforcement, Engagement, and Empowerment for Change on the Eastern Shore project will substantially reduce nutrient pollution on Maryland’s Eastern Shore over the next five years by implementing a coordinated enforcement and community engagement campaign. In addition to accelerating the pace of pollution reductions necessary to meet Chesapeake Bay restoration goals, will also catalyze a long term transformation on the Lower Eastern Shore that promotes the interests of local communities and sustainable farming over that of the poultry industry.
