Pollution on Church Creek, South River, Anne Arundel County

Pollution on Church Creek, South River, Anne Arundel Count

Here is an interesting May 2009 honors thesis by US Naval Academy midshipman first class Gregory, described in the attached poster, which shows that pollution on Church Creek, a tributary of the South River on the Chesapeake Bay near Annapolis, DOUBLED after the construction of a major shopping center in Parole at the head of the Church Creek watershed.

Here’s a detail of the graphic marked to show the difference before and after the shopping center construction:

Maryland State law says that pollution after construction of “re-developed” sites should be slightly less than before the new construction. NOT DOUBLE previous levels.
