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

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.

Patuxent River rates a poor report card
Staff quoted: UMCES
Article Link Permanent Link

For the second consecutive year, Maryland's longest river has received a near-failing environmental grade from Patuxent Riverkeeper, a stewardship group. The report card, issued Wednesday, was based on sampling by volunteers, who monitored water quality and biological standards at 51 stations, from the Howard-Montgomery county line to the river's mouth at the Chesapeake Bay 110 miles away. While the upper reaches of the river got grades of C and C-minus, the stretch south from the Charles-St. Mary's county line received an F. Among the biggest threats to the river are storm-water and construction runoff; sewage overflow from wastewater treatment plants; and the proliferation of paved surfaces, the report card said.
