32 out of 100 on any teacher's report card is failing. Getting to 70 is gonna be VERY difficult, especially by the target date of 2025. Underwater grasses are not thriving, but the rockfish are. Heavy rains and hurricanes are enemies of the Chesapeake because they wash lots of pollutants into the tributaries.
Governor McDonnell has proposed $217 million for the Bay budget, including more sewage treatment plant improvements. When they overflow, it's a real "yuck" factor.
So all Virginians should wish the Chesapeake a hearty "Godspeed."
