$3.4M awarded for Bay projects

By Washington Post editors

Thirty-four projects across the Chesapeake Bay watershed will be receiving $3.4 million in grants.

Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin plans to join officials from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and National Fish and Wildlife Foundation on Thursday to announce the grants in Dundalk.

Chesapeake Bay Program officials say the grants will be used on initiatives in the District and the six watershed states of Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware and New York.

The initiatives include an urban tree canopy program in Baltimore County, efforts to improve wildlife habitat and programs to reduce runoff of pollution into streams, creeks and rivers that drain into the Chesapeake.
