Play associated audio

Federal efforts to clean up the Chesapeake Bay are falling short. So says a group of scientists and former politicians.

Matt Bush reports.

The group is led by Gerald Winegrad, a former Maryland state senator. He says last year's federal disaster declaration for the Bay's Blue Crab population isn't the only failure of the Environmental Protection Agency's first cleanup plan for the Bay. That was filed 26 years ago. Winegrad says the new cleanup plan from the EPA is weak. His group is pushing a set of proposals which include tougher pollution regulations for farms.
