It’s report card time for The Chesapeake Bay, and the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science team gave the Bay a “C” score.  While a 53 percent isn’t generally a time for high-fives, this year’s score is the third highest since 1985, the year earnest Bay clean up efforts began.  This year’s score is pretty important because 2015 was a fairly normal rain year. Both 1992 and 2002 scores were higher because of severe droughts.
