Bay conservation honors go to five

November 30, 1990

Five Marylanders were honored last night at the fifth annual Chesapeake Bay Conservation Awards dinner in Annapolis for their efforts to protect the bay.

Lina Vlavianos, of Millersville, an outspoken and persistent critic of mud pollution caused by highway building and other construction in Anne Arundel County, was credited with helping to double the number of sediment control inspectors in the state and with getting the State Highway Administration to reduce the amount of mud pollution from its projects.

Also cited was Dr. L. Eugene Cronin, of Annapolis, for nearly a half-century of research on the bay. Cronin, 73, is a retired University of Maryland professor and former director of the school's Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, and he remains active on various advisory boards.

Other award recipients included: Worral "Nick" Carter, administrator of environmental reviews for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources; William J. Goldsborough, fisheries scientist for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation; Lynn Heinmuller, former president of the Easton High School Ecology Club; and the Michael T. Rose Companies of Laurel, developer of a Calvert County housing project praised as environmentally sensitive.

Altogether, a dozen individuals and organizations from Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia received awards. The event was co-sponsored by the Izaak Walton League of America and the DuPont Co.
