Video: Gansler tours Chester River

Photographer Eric Stocklin joined Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler on a boat tour of the Chester River yesterday, a body of water shared by Kent and Queen Anne’s County on the Eastern Shore.

The group was led by Tom Leigh of the Chester River Association, who presented findings on the health of the river.

A recent report by the state Dept. of Natural Resources on Maryland’s major tributaries identified five threats to water quality in the basin; the Chester River was rated “severely stressed” in four of them and “moderately stressed” in the fifth.

Gansler, you may know, has started a campaign (PDF) to look for ways to cut pollution in state waterways.
