Fouling Our Waterways
According to a recent report by the Natural Resources Defense Council, several Maryland beaches have had repeated violations for high bacteria accounts. The Post coverage mentions:
Maryland's dirtiest beaches, according to the report figures, include Town Point at Arkhaven, Severn Grove and Annapolis Landing in Anne Arundel County; Lusby in Calvert County; Chester River Yacht and Country Club, Bogles Wharf and Kinnards Point in Kent County; and St. Clement Shores community beach, Wicomico Shores and the Golden Beach community beach, boat ramp and small beach in St. Mary's County.
Both the Severn and South Riverkeepers are quoted in the story, each expressing little surprise at the report's findings.
