Rural Counties Plot Suit Against 'Bay Diet'

Coalition mulls law firm in bay cleanup : Cost for rural counties near $300K
A law firm already representing Dorchester County has offered its services to members of the Maryland Rural Counties Coalition, including possible legal challenges to the state’s Chesapeake Bay clean-up program.

Funk and Bolton made the presentation at the rural coalition’s Oct. 8 organizational meeting in Annapolis, according to the organization’s minutes. The firm has offices in Annapolis, Baltimore and Chestertown.

The firm will offer research and analysis, complete and finalize watershed implementation plans, work on the relicensing of the Conowingo Dam and challenge the total maximum daily load model for bay cleanup, which is believed to be flawed.
As an engineering friend once said "All models are wrong; some models are useful." We don't know yet where the TMDL models fall on the scale of usefulness.
