Health of Potomac at the tipping point

Posted by macy 2086 days ago in Water Quality from http://fredericksburg.com

Runoff from urban landscapes and growth in the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia suburbs is the biggest threat to water quality in the Potomac River.

That's the conclusion of a report released yesterday by the Potomac River Conservancy that gives the watershed a D+ grade--unimproved from the conservation agency's first "State of the Nation's River" report last year.

The agency also released a survey on public perceptions of Potomac pollution issues.
