Please Pass Poultry Litter Regulation

I hike along the Potomac regularly and my son is an avid kayaker.

I want us to do all we can to protect the environment and the natural resources that this country has been blessed with.  There must be regulation of industrial waste that enters the Potomac River.  It is common knowledge that waste from chickens is unhealthy for rivers.  My son who is an avid kayaker often has ear infections after kayaking in the Potomac and he seldom gets them when kayaking other rivers.  It's time to clean up the Potomac so that the river can be enjoyed and the water taken from it for drinking is safe for those who consume it.
Thank you,
Susan Wilensky
