EASTON — While one analysis conducted by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and Choose Clean Water Coalition showed that all jurisdictions in the Chesapeake Bay region are currently making progress meeting pollution reduction goals, another assessment by the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science shows the health of the Chesapeake Bay improved to a C in 2012 from a D+ in 2011.

In 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency and Bay jurisdictions established the Chesapeake Clean Water Blueprint, which set up limits for reduction of pollutants, like nitrogen and phosphorus and sediment, and state-specific plans of how to achieve them with both EPA and states committing to implements actions to achieve 60 percent of the needed pollution reduction by 2017 and 100 percent by 2025.
