A Drop in the Bucket

5,000 pounds of debris removed from Chesapeake Bay
The aftermath of heavy rains continues to be felt, as state officials lifted plenty of heavy debris out of Maryland waterways.

Maryland Department of Natural Resources reported removing 5,000 pounds of marine debris from the Chesapeake Bay and the Chester River on the Eastern Shore.

Maryland is also asking Exelon, which oversees the Conowingo Dam, to assist with clearing flood-related debris.

As you can imagine from the picture, it doesn't take too many wet logs to add up to 5000 lbs. Get back to me when you've removed about 1000 X that much.

On a brighter note, we haven't seen a big flood of logs and trash on the beach yet. Will we dodge it entirely?
