Chesapeake Bay pollution numbers improve
The amount of pollution that washed into the Chesapeake Bay dropped dramatically in 2015, a trend advocates said is promising but may also have more to do with the weather than with bay cleanup efforts. From 2014 to 2015, the amount of nitrogen that reached the bay fell by 25 percent, while phosphorus loads dropped by 44 percent, according to the Chesapeake Bay Program.
