The Health of the South River

The annual South River Scorecard for 2018 has just been released. This report presents data on key indicators of River health such as water clarity, dissolved oxygen, underwater grasses, and the abundance of aquatic life. You can view the 2018 report and related graphics here on the website of the Arundel Rivers Federation.

State of the Bay Report

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation has released its 2018 State of the Bay Report. The results are sobering--a rating of D+, lower than last year. Extraordinary weather flushed enormous amounts of nitrogen, phosphorous, and debris—mostly from Pennsylvania, but also from other regions—off our lands and into the Bay.
