Baltimore Healthy Harbor Report Card 2013
Baltimore Healthy Harbor Report Card 2013.
Baltimore Healthy Harbor Report Card scores a 51% for 2013
The Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore and Blue Water Baltimore published the Healthy Harbor Report Card to help lead the public, government, and businesses toward a healthy Baltimore Harbor, one that is swimmable and fishable by 2020. Using water quality indicators, the health condition of the Harbor was determined for 2013. This score of 51% was an improvement over the 2012 score of 40%. This was the first year that Baltimore Harbor's streams and watershed were also monitored and evaluated. Baltimore Harbor Watershed scored a 57% in 2013. Human health indicators are also discussed in the report card. This newsletter provides the overall results, and describes how the public has been helping clean up their Harbor as well.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
