Photo of the Week: Here Comes the Rain!

Photo by Emmy Nicklin/CBF Staff.
Polluted runoff from storms is one of the most harmful--and least understood--sources of pollution to the Bay and its rivers and streams. And it's growing. That's why we're looking for ways to better illustrate this troublesome issue to the public. 

This week as Hurricane Karen's remnants make their way north, we need your help! Grab your camera along with your umbrella as you head out the door in the morning. Take some pics of daily life in the rain. Specifically, we're looking for photos of flooding/damage/pollution from rainwater running off our streets. 

E-mail your pics along with a brief description of where/when the photos were taken to enicklin[at sign]

Bonus points for those of you who include a clean water story with your photo submission.

Thanks, as always, for your help!
