The key players in the restoration of the Chesapeake Bay are meeting in northern Virginia to assess the progress of the massive undertaking.

The annual meeting of the Chesapeake Bay Program's executive council is Monday evening at Gunston Hall near Mount Vernon. Those scheduled to attend include Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and District of Columbia Mayor Vincent Gray.

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell will send his secretary of natural resources, Doug Domenech. McDonnell is away on a trade mission.

The meeting is expected to produce an update on how six states and the district are doing in the effort to bring back the bay after years of neglect.

The cleanup is one of the biggest water pollution control projects in U.S. history.
