Chesapeake News and Events


Dr. Donald Boesch, president of the University of Maryland’s Center for Environmental Science, argues that the new federal pollution limit, also known as the Bay TMDL, is the Chesapeake’s “moment in time” to meet restoration goals and return to a balanced, healthy, and productive ecosystem.  He believes that we “know what needs to be done” and we can find “effective and more efficient ways to accomplish them.”
