Chesapeake Bay Program (Wed 1 Feb, 2017)
Bay Barometer Notes Measured Progress in Health of Chesapeake Bay
Article Link Permanent Link

Today, the Chesapeake Bay Program released its annual report on the environmental health and restoration of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Working across political and geographic boundaries, our partnership has reached—and in some cases, surpassed—the halfway mark toward half a dozen of the commitments built into the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement and is cautiously optimistic about the work that remains. Our partnership has renewed its emphasis on engaging landowners and local governments in achieving our vision of a sustainable watershed, and we stand with federal agencies, states, academic institutions and nongovernmental organizations in a united front against risks and threats.

Although the 2015 Chesapeake Bay Report Card gave the bay a 53 percent, its best score since receiving 57 percent in 1992, Back River and Patapsco River were given a 21 percent, the worst grade in the Chesapeake Bay region, according to the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science (UMCES).

Chesapeake Bay water quality improving with drop in nutrient, sediment pollution
Article Link Permanent Link

ANNAPOLIS — The amount of nutrient and sediment pollution entering the Chesapeake Bay fell significantly between 2014 and 2015, helping improve water quality in the nation's largest estuary. Experts attribute this drop in pollution loads to dry weather and below-normal river flow, but note local efforts to reduce pollution also played a role. Indeed, related research shows "best management practices"—including upgrading wastewater treatment plants, lowering vehicle and power plant emissions, and reducing runoff from farmland—have lowered nutrients and sediment in local waterways.
