New home construction and rip-rap shoreline replaces natural wetlands and forest buffer. The edge of the forest buffer and marsh is visible on the right side of this photo. This home is part of a large residential development of former farmlands and waterfront estate grounds.

Asphalt production plant's waterfront depot, empty gravel barge and crane. The >300' fully loaded gravel barges are pushed up-river by tugboats to this waterfront depot where the gravel is unloaded and hot mixed to produce road asphalt. The negative riparian impacts are: 1) the prop dredging of the river by the tug pushing oversized barges, resuspending the toxic benthic sediments; 2) streambank erosion from tug wake, and 3) stormwater runoff potentially laden with toxic hydrocarbons, oils, greases and metals.

Riverbank erosion, causing soil and vegetation to collapse into river. The combination of property owners removing riverfront vegetation and passing boat wakes, both commercial and recreational, can lead to bank erosion and the collapse of soil and trees into the waterways. stream,erosion,loss,of,buffer zone,sedimentation,nutrient,pollution

Waterfront home construction. This home under construction is situated in a pine forest. A silt fence has been installed in an attempt to prevent sedimentation into the wetlands. Unfortunately, even a building setback does little to prevent septic systems from failing due to frequent flooding and nutrient-laden runoff into the river.

Waterfront fuel depot storage tanks and crab boat. Historically and currently, Easton Point has industrial waterfront activities such as fuel sales, delivery and storage, and gravel depots for asphalt production. A waterman's coop is also located here for the marketing of Maryland blue crabs.

Waterfront fuel depot storage tanks, heavy equipment storage and concrete debris on shoreline. Historically and currently, Easton Point has industrial waterfront activities such as fuel sales, delivery and storage. While these assorted slabs of concrete may provide some shoreline protection, it does little to prevent polluted stormwater runoff into the river.
