CBF Issues Statement on the UMCES Bay Health Assessment

(ANNAPOLIS, MD)—Chesapeake Bay Foundation Vice President Kim Coble issued this statement following the release of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science Bay health assessment.

"We welcome the good news that progress is being made in reducing pollution to the Chesapeake Bay. These results are reflected in the improved score in UMCES's report card.

"The score, however, is only part of the story. The region is not on track to meet its long-term goals, and therefore, the Bay jurisdictions, with EPA's leadership need to do significantly more if we are to realize a restored Bay by 2025 as the states and EPA committed to achieving."
