Chesapeake Bay Pollution
When it rains, it pollutes. For years, that’s been the problem with a highly-degraded stream that flows into the Chesapeake Bay.
Wild swings in the weather in 2011 have left the Chesapeake Bay in its worst shape in years.
Near record flows on the Susquehanna River are bringing sewage, sediments and other pollution into the Chesapeake Bay. And that’s threatening bay grasses, oysters and other key species that help improve the bay’s water quality.
