EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | April 23, 2013
For decades in Maryland many things have been done in the name of saving the Chesapeake Bay, but the degree to which tangible progress has been made is something of a disappointment. To be sure, there have been some successes. The mid-1980s ban on catching rockfish in an effort to allow the Chesapeake stock of the state fish to make a recovery has resulted in reasonably healthy stocks of the fish being available for watermen and sport anglers alike these days. Substantially stricter regulation of blue crab harvests seem to have helped avert a rockfish-like population collapse in Maryland's signature table fare.

The sealant they had been using had been declared a carcinogen by the Environmental Protection Agency, and my task was to find a safe alternative that could be injected at high pressure into tiny cracks in the walls of the Metro stations.The substitute I found, polyacrylamide, was a gelling agent used mainly for consolidation of loose soil around oil wells.
