Clean water is one of the Chesapeake Bay region’s most important resources. The Bay watershed’s many freshwater rivers and streams provide drinking water for people and habitats for animals and plants.
But many of those same waterways suffer from reduced water quality from a variety of causes — like excess nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus. Erosion. Harmful algal blooms. Heavy metals and other toxins from human activities.
Maryland Sea Grant Extension’s specialists work with local governments, community groups, and citizens to help improve water quality on the local level and in the Bay. Click on the links below to learn more about our projects regarding watershed restoration and stormwater management ponds.
For more information, contact the watershed restoration specialist in your region and learn more about their work.
