Creola's Clean Water Story

197Photo by Creola Brossman.

Clean water is very important to me. I grew up in the Hampton Roads area in Virginia. My friends were always at Buckroe Beach during the summer sunbathing and swimming like most teenage girls were doing.

I'm living in Pennsylvania now and make frequent visits back to the beach at Buckroe. I have been back to visit every year as my sisters still live in the area. [I] have brought my husband to the beach and would like to share my childhood with my grandson, who is to be born this July. [My hope is that] the beach would be just as pristine as it was when I was a child.
