Krista Schlyer's Chesapeake Bay RAVE Video Blog

Photographer Krista Schlyer has been photographing in Maryland for the Chesapeake Bay RAVE for about eight days now. She has been on a pontoon boat on the Anacostia River, looking at native fish populations, and exploring Rock Creek Park for stormwater problems.

Says Krista, "I'm hoping to use my images to raise awareness for the Chesapeake Bay watershed in hopes that we can amend the Clean Water Act to ensure that we actually do the kind of things that we've been saying for a long time that we want to do to protect the Chesapeake Bay.  And I'm hoping to show people this is a beautiful, beautiful placeā€¦that people can go visit and hopefully learn to love and want to protect. And also to show people just how bad it is because it's a really bad situation right now."

Join Krista and help amend the Clean Water Act.

Water quality reports

the article reminds me of another write up concerning water Quality Standards that are the foundation of the water quality-based pollution control program mandated by the Clean Water Act. Water Quality Standards define the goals for a waterbody by designating its uses, setting criteria to protect those uses, and establishing provisions such as antidegradation policies to protect waterbodies from pollutants.
