Worcester County's coastal bays are beginning to suffer a decline in water quality, according to a report recently released by the Maryland Coastal Bays Program and other agencies. Even the southern Chincoteague Bay, normally one of the cleaner areas, is seeing a drop. The coastal bays overall received a grade of C+, while the Chincoteague Bay got a B-. The healthiest was the Sinepuxent Bay, which borders the federally protected Assateague Island National Seashore, while the Newport Bay and St. Martin River, both of which receive runoff from nearby developed areas, earned grades of D+.
