$22.7M in projects to help restore Chesapeake

Federal officials plan to announce $22.7 million in funding for Chesapeake Bay restoration projects.
Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin says the 41 projects will reduce runoff of sediment as well as sewage, fertilizer and other pollution that feeds harmful algae blooms in the bay. The projects are located across the bay's six-state watershed, which runs from Virginia to New York and also includes West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland.

Here we go again , leave it alone and stop raping the resources it provides. Then and only then will it recover.

They just want the money. Whether it goes toward the bay restoration remains to be proven. What about the fee paid by every household? What is it used for?
