Quotes

...According to William C Baker, president of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, "Much of the Bay and many local waterways don't provide healthy habitat for fish, oysters and other aquatic life. Pollution has cost thousands of jobs and continues to put human health at risk."
"We went beyond the EPA in looking at Loch Raven Reservoir," said Nancy Pentz, Gunpowder Valley Conservancy's representative on the committee. "We looked at local issues like water temperature and trout habitat."
"But I cannot take all the credit. It is the students who have done the work" he said. And he adds that much of the credit also goes to fellow teachers who have joined the effort
