Killing The Water!

Animal waste is polluting our water ways at an alarming rate - so much that our coastal waters are rapidly turning into areas that cannot support life.

Check out a recent article from the Wall Street Journal focusing in on how the Chesapeak Bay is being impacted by animal waste, and what some people are doing about it.
