Sign, sign, everywhere a sign.
Did you notice the cover of this magazine? Potentially hazardous algal blooms like this, seen around the watershed
this summer, are a sign of excess pollution in our Bay.
And, though fewer, there are some positive signs as well.
Signs that remind us we know what works. Signs that pollution reduction is successful at improving water quality
in places like Virginia’s Gunston Cove (page 8).
So why aren’t we achieving more? Many big polluters are
fighting EPA’s science-based pollution diet for the Bay.
See how CBF is countering this opposition (page 11)
and find out what you can do to help (page 13).
Need some encouragement? Read the confident words
of EPA’s Senior Advisor for the Bay (page 19).
Let’s keep up the fight, face the opponents hoping to
tear down the Clean Water Act and undermine EPA’s
power, and watch for signs of a healthier Bay in issues
Consider the Chesapeake Bay Foundation
as a beneficiary in your estate plans.
