A slight scent of detergent is in the air as Alice Volpitta, Water Quality Manager for the clean-water advocacy group Blue Water Baltimore (BWB), takes a few careful steps down the top of a poured-concrete slope on the banks of the Jones Falls, just above where the river descends underground near Amtrak's Penn Station. A steady stream of soapy-smelling water courses down the slope out of a pipe that's runs underneath Falls Road, and as Volpitta approaches the pipe's mouth, called an outfall, a car drives by.

It's dark outside, and the pre-dawn Monday morning traffic in Baltimore's Harbor Tunnel is light. I just made a mad dash out of bed, into my truck, and to the ATM and gas station, thinking I'd overslept to make a timely 7 a.m. arrival for my date near Taylor's Island on Maryland's Eastern Shore, where I was to jump on a boat with a host of state-employed oyster experts. As I emerge from the tunnel and head toward Interstate 97, I glance at my phone—oh, right, the clocks changed back over the weekend. Knowing I'd be early, I slow down, put on the cruise control, relax to some tunes, and start to think about oysters.
