Prince George’s County Stream and Water Quality Regulations Criticized by Environmentalists and Developers

A June 1 Washington Post article discusses concerns being raised by environmentalists and developers over stream and water quality regulations being proposed by Prince George’s County. 

For the first time in more than two decades, Prince George’s County planners are updating environmental regulations that affect stream buffers, water quality and woodland conservation.

You’d think that would be good news to environmentalists.

It isn’t.

They say the rules don’t go far enough to protect the county’s streams, wetlands and open fields. Meanwhile, developers are complaining that the regulations are too stringent and could have a detrimental effect on building costs.
