Wicomico River News

An Environmental report released by the 2008 Chesapeake Bay Foundation Wicomico River Creekwatchers says poor water clarity, high nitrogen and phosphorus levels in the Wicomico River contribute to unhealthy conditions which lead to low dissolved oxygen levels, a high concentration of algae blooms and dead zones. The report shows 84 percent of the 25 water quality testing sites categorized in the moderate to severe problem range for nitrogen pollution, which is 4 percent higher than 2007 results.

If you don't know the information please e-mail it to me at and pass this information on to the clubs not present if you happen to see them.

Remember if there is anything that you can think of that you would like to see from your Conservation Director this year please let me know bye-mailing me at I will do my best to see it happen or explain why it cannot, either way you will get an answer.
