Chesapeake Is Still In Trouble

An article in this morning's Metro section describes the health of the Chesapeake Bay as still "dangerously out of balance" after 30 years of clean-up efforts. www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/11/13/AR2005111301180.html
Fairfax County passed measures in 1993 and 2003 aimed at helping to save the bay by limiting what types of development and construction projects can be done in resource protections areas where run-off leads into streams and eventually into the bay.

What's your opinion of what is being done locally to protect the bay? Do you live in a resource protection area? How have the rules affected your property?
