The Maryland Daily Record (Fri 3 Apr, 2009)
Report: Bay remains unhealthy
Staff quoted: UMCES

A new report finds the Chesapeake Bay remains unhealthy, although restoration efforts appear to be working in some areas. The analysis released Thursday by the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science gave the bay a C-minus grade. Researchers say the grade indicates ecological conditions have not significantly changed from 2007 and remain far below what is needed for a healthy Bay. However, the analysis says restoration efforts appear to be improving conditions in some areas, such as the upper western Shore and Virginia's James River, while other areas continue to worsen. A separate report released last month by the Chesapeake Bay Program also found no overall improvement over the past year.

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.

It's been said that to know the challenges a person faces, walk a mile in their shoes. Similarly, if you want to understand the mechanics of a watershed and its secret treasures, hike one of its feeder streams. And if you travel with a first-order 'river rat,' pack light, lace your wading boats tight and don't meander, or you'll be left in his wake.
