Dr. Thomas Murray,
Professor of Biology
"Saving the Bay One Stream at a Time"
The Conewago Creek drains over 50 square miles of the larger Chesapeake Bay Watershed. In the 1990's, over forty miles of the Conewago Watershed were listed as impaired, meaning that it is too polluted to sustain the fish and other aquatic organisms found in healthy streams. Since 2002, Dr. Murray and his students have been studying the Conewago and the impacts of ongoing restoration efforts. In this presentation, he will discuss the current state of the Conewago and its restoration efforts as a model for the continuing cleanup of the Chesapeake Bay.
