Hogan turns back on bay

Regarding the recent report on the Conowingo Dam, The Sun described Larry Hogan's reaction to the findings as "questioning them," calling the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers a "biased source" but also acknowledging he "had not read the report" ("Dredging Conowingo little help to bay, study finds," Nov. 12).

The corps certainly has its problems, particularly failing on some of their waterway re-engineering, but how can your reporter let that comment stand unquestioned — that he hadn't read the report but expressed an opinion anyway?

One only has to go to Goggle Earth to see the satellite images of the Chesapeake Bay and the dead zones at the mouths of various estuaries caused by poorly-contained run-off from farms, commercial development and residences. Popular concern about saving the bay seems to go no further than one's last dozen steamed crabs and apparently doesn't apply when it might take a couple dollars out of our wallets to help improve our stormwater management.
