Report: Bay remains unhealthy

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.
