The Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin was estab-
lished by an Act of Congress in 1940, and the compact was ratified by
the participating states shortly thereafter. The Commission is com-
posed of representatives from the United States Government, the
States of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia, and
the District of Columbia. The representatives from Maryland include
the Governor, and two members, who are residents of the Potomac
River Conservancy District, appointed by the Governor for a term
of two years (Code 1939, Art. 43, sec. 392). The Commission has
jurisdiction over the Potomac River Conservancy District, created by
the enabling act. The District embraces an area of approximately
14,500 square miles with an estimated population of 2,000,000. The
duties of the Commission are (1) to coordinate, tabulate, and sum-
marize existing data on the character, pollution, and condition of
streams in the Conservancy District; (2) to supplement existing
data, when necessary, by conducting investigations; (3) to promote
adoption by the signatory bodies of uniform legislation for the con-
trol of stream pollution; (4) to disseminate information to the public
on the effects of stream pollution and the objectives of the Commis-
sion; (5) to cooperate with other organizations in, and conduct, if
advisable, studies of treatment methods for sewage and industrial
wastes; (6) to recommend to signatory bodies standards for cleanli-
ness of streams.

The Commission is financed by appropriations from each of the
participating bodies.
