A good day for the Chesapeake Bay

Latest news from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation:

We just heard that the U.S. Supreme Court has denied the request of the American Farm Bureau Federation and its allies to take up their case challenging the legality of the Chesapeake Bay clean-up plan known as the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint. 

This is perhaps THE most historic day for the Bay, its thousands of rivers and streams, and the 17 million people that call this region home. Everyone who cares about clean water can breathe easier now that the Supreme Court has let stand the lower court decision that the Blueprint is perfectly legal under the federal Clean Water Act.
