Delaware's Plan To Control Runoff Heads For Crucial Public Hearing

An eight-year attempt to tighten statewide controls on stormwater and sediment runoff will go to a crucial public hearing Tuesday, with critics and supporters recommending changes and in some cases calling for a new delay and new compromises.
