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.
