Chesapeake Bay Continues to Suffer (Audio)
Staff quoted: Bill Dennison, Margaret Palmer

Despite restoration efforts, experts say the health of the Chesapeake Bay remains poor. The Bay as a whole received a C-minus from the University of Maryland's Center for Environmental Science. Pollution from urban areas as well as agricultural runoff continue to choke marine life. Sewage and manure feed algae blooms that starve the Bay, and the creatures that live there, of oxygen. Efforts to reduce storm water runoff have improved some areas, but others, like the lower western shore below Baltimore received a grade of F and continue to deteriorate.
