2009 Nanticoke River Report Card

The first comprehensive Nanticoke River Report Card shows good news, giving overall health of the river a "B-minus." The report card, based on data collected by volunteer Nanticoke Creekwatchers, is designed to help local residents better understand the health of the Nanticoke River. From April through November, more than 30 volunteers monitor water quality at 37 sites across the 725,000-acre watershed. The Nanticoke Watershed Alliance teamed up with IAN to assess how the Nanticoke "measured up" in comparison to other rivers feeding into the Chesapeake Bay.
