The Inner Harbor and tidal Patapsco River of Baltimore posted failing grades in water quality for the third straight year.Quick, we need the farmers to make more drastic cuts in their pollution! They're killing the Bay!
The Baltimore Sun reports that the report card from the Healthy Harbor Initiative for the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore found concerns with fecal bacteria from the city's sewage system and pollutants that flow into the harbor following rain.
City leaders had previously set a goal of turning the harbor into a swimmable and fishable area by 2020.
