2008 Patuxent River Report Card

This newsletter is the second annual Patuxent River ecosystem health report card. The report card provides grades for the three tidal regions of the Patuxent River estuary. The grades are based on the frequency that the river is able to meet six ecological targets. The results show the river is generally in poor condition despite a small improvement in the health in 2008 (compared to 2007). A narrative description of the non-tidal portion of the river based on the Patuxent Riverkeeper citizen water quality monitoring program is also provided.
