Photo of the Week: When It Rains It Pours!

Flooding in LancasterPhoto by Timothy Shultz.

"Here are some pics from Manheim and Lancaster, PA, from [this weekend's] unprecedented rainfall. The weather forecasters called for 1-3 inches of rain. We received 4-6! Once again, [these photos] show just how inadequate our stormwater [woes are] dealt with. The flooding in Manheim really needs to be addressed. It happens anytime there is a rainfall of more than 3 inches. Lancaster has the same flooding under that bridge with no posted signs."

--Timothy Shultz

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 an ever-growing source of pollution to the waters we all love. Learn more about this troublesome water quality threat, and what you can do about it.
