When this page is relaunched, it will include an interactive map that will feature:

  • the current water quality status over the past three years at stations around the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.

  • the long-term trends (1999-present) at those same stations, indicating if an area is improving, degrading or exhibits no change.

  • includes total nitrogen, total phosphorus, summer bottom dissolved oxygen, total suspended solids, chlorophyll and secchi depth (water clarity).
