Bay diet

    Health & Science reporter Carolyn Beeler has been following the story of the Chesapeake Bay’s poor scoring in Environmental Protection Agency standards. She reports: “The EPA today finalized a ‘pollution diet’ for the Chesapeake Bay, calling for Pennsylvania, five other states and the District of Columbia to reduce emission of key pollutants by 20-25 percent. The plan relies on states to enact measures to reduce that pollution, but found deficiencies in some of Pennsylvania’s plan, which warrant ‘enhanced federal oversight.'”

    Carolyn will have the full story later.
