Talbot County Clean Water Forum
Presented by Dan Watson, Talbot Preservation Alliance

On April 9, 2015, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, Talbot Preservation Alliance, and the Midshore Riverkeeper Conservancy hosted an overview of pollution reduction challenges and opportunities in Talbot County, Maryland.

A presentation of local water quality conditions and trends was followed by a review and discussion of local pollution sources and practical, cost-effective ways to improve the health of Talbot County's rivers and streams.
