ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) A flotilla of Chesapeake Bay activists is heading to Annapolis with what they say are bold, radical restoration recommendations.

The flotilla of 50 bay leaders is expected to land at Annapolis' city dock Wednesday morning. There, they say, they will present their recommendations to representatives of the Chesapeake Executive Council, which guides restoration efforts by bay states and the federal government.

The council is to meet Thursday in Baltimore as work continues to implement a restoration strategy developed in response to a presidential order.

The group of former governors, senators scientists and advocates say changes are needed in farming, development and sewage disposal and the adoption of their recommendations is critical.
