Choptank Riverkeeper: Community Turns Out for Clean Water Forum

Big turnout at Cambrige workshop dealing with water issues

CAMBRIDGE — Cambridge residents eager to help cut pollution in the Chesapeake Bay and solve water-related problems in their own yards packed into a meeting organized by the Cambridge Clean Water Advisory Committee at a time when a proposed federal budget would eliminate funding to clean up the Bay.

The Residential Water Quality Workshop, held at the Dorchester County Public Library March 22, aimed to explain ways to reduce the large amount of pollution-laden water that runs off roofs and yards, then into local waterways and the Bay.
