City snow removal is killing the bay

February 10, 2010

Someone needs to tell Baltimore to stop dumping contaminated snow into the Chesapeake Bay. It only takes one drop of oil to contaminate a million gallons of saltwater. The bay cannot take all the gas and oil but also the drop in its salt content (salinity). Millions of creatures will die as a result of Baltimore's action. The city is being allowed to dump millions, maybe billions, of gallons of gas, oil, trash, and God only knows what else off of Pier 5 of the Inner Harbor, and they even show it on the news. Why?
