CRA advocates for the Chester River in a number of ways—testifying at bill hearings in Annapolis, working with our local County Commissioners, and reaching out to our members to call and write to their elected officials. We work on the local, state, and federal level to ensure that laws and regulations reflect what is best for the health of the Chester.

Our most recent efforts include:

  • Testifying in support of the Poultry Litter Management Act
  • Applying for a No Discharge Zone in the Chester River
  • Four Seasons and TMDL De-listing Lawsuits

Every resident of the Chester watershed can be an advocate for the river’s health and restoration. Subscribe to our email list to keep up with our latest efforts or contact Chester Riverkeeper Isabel Hardesty ( to find out how you can help.
