Commenter: Rapidan Chapter Trout Unlimited (Supporting Shenandoah Riverkeeper)

Please Pass The Poultry Litter Regulation

Connected to the river through local conservation initiatives, recreational fishing and the national goal to "conserve, protect, and restore North Americas coldwater fisheries."
The Rapidan Chapter of Trout Unlimited numbers approx. 280 individuals who are commited to the protection of area watersheds.  There are numerous small creeks that feed the Shenadoah that are also affected by this legislation.  We believe that limiting pollutants and restricting the ability of said pollutants to enter the river and its tributaries is important for the well being of both the wildlife and the population served by this resource.  To this end, we support the Shenandoah Rive Keeper in his efforts to attain a positive outcome on this issue.
