The Chesapeake Bay and most of Maryland’s rivers and streams are contaminated, which is bad for public health and damages our economy. In 2012, Maryland passed critical legislation to strengthen our cleanup efforts by upgrading technology at our wastewater treatment plants, curbing suburban sprawl, and requiring local governments to reduce polluted runoff from stormwater.
Now, in an election year, the effort to clean up our waters is under attack. Help us protect our families and communities by defending Maryland’s requirement to reduce polluted runoff.
