Understanding the science behind the Bay's problems is crucial if we are going to make any inroads. But sometimes, you just need to say it like it is.
On Friday, CBF Senior Naturalist John Page Williams took Annapolis Capital reporter Pamela Wood out on the Severn for a look at the river's oxygen levels. Their monitoring cruise, along with tests from other local rivers, shows oxygen levels that are frustratingly low. And as the summer goes on, Williams expects worse.
"Is it better or worse? I don't give a damn. It's just bad," Williams is quoted saying. "Even if it's average, average stinks."
