The Chesapeake Bay is a national treasure and needs to be protected. However, millions of tons of manure are generated each year on the Delmarva Peninsula, primarily from poultry operations. These poultry operations often house tens of thousands of animals at a time. As a result, the bay, the aquatic life it supports, and the communities that depend on it for their livelihood face significant threats from the pollution caused by these concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs).
The federal Clean Water Act needs to be strengthened to protect the Chesapeake Bay. Let President Obama know you want to see a strong rule proposed now to save the bay from the damages caused by pollution generated by CAFOs.
The Chesapeake Bay needs you to protect it. Save the bay before it is too late.
