ANNAPOLIS, MD (AP) – A report on the Chesapeake Bay found strong disparities between communities in different parts of the bay’s watershed in terms of health, economics, and social justice concerns. The report was released by the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. It’s the first time an integrated environmental justice index was included in the evaluation of the health of the nation’s largest estuary. It presented the challenges of improving the health of the bay in a larger context, specifically to include the health of people of communities in the watershed. The overall bay health score has increased by six points in the past two years, according to the report.
