Tell Maryland's elected officials to reduce pollution from manure
After years of delay, Maryland finally has new regulations to better manage manure and protect our waters.
Manure contaminates local waterways and the Chesapeake Bay and threatens public health. It chokes our waters of the necessary oxygen to support crabs, oysters and other aquatic life and causes toxic algae blooms. And numerous studies show that phosphorus pollution from manure is getting worse, not better.
Help protect Maryland waterways by asking Senate President Miller, Speaker Busch and your Maryland legislators to support the new phosphorus rule.
