Video Highlights Communities Taking Action to Save the Bay

While some industry lobbying groups have sued to overturn EPA pollution limits for the Chesapeake Bay, many communities are moving ahead and hiring workers to build improved pollution control systems and a stronger local economy.

Check out this new music video about the efforts of counties and cities in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania to meet these pollution limits and follow the Chesapeake Bay Clean Water Blueprint. Then forward it to all your friends who care about restoring the nation's largest estuary.

The video is set to an inspiring song, “Chesapeake,” that Grammy award-winning guitarist and musician Al Petteway generously allowed the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to use. Many thanks, Al!  To learn more about Al and his partner Amy White, click here.
