Md. website to help assess stream health
Gov. Martin O'Malley is rolling out a new website to enable Maryland residents to check on the environmental health of Maryland streams.
O'Malley will be in Middle River on Tuesday to release the 2010 University of Maryland Center for Environmental Sciences report card.
The new website, which is called StreamHealth, will give residents a chance to view the amounts of impervious surface and buffers in their watersheds.
Pollutants pile up on impervious surfaces like roads and parking lots. Pollutants can find their way into the Chesapeake Bay by being washed by storms into streams.
