"The Conowingo, Holtwood and Safe Harbor dams present significantly less of a threat to the health of the Chesapeake Bay than other contributors to pollution found in the broader Susquehanna River watershed, federal engineers conclude."

Federal engineers also said it wouldn't hurt the bay or anyone, if a channel was dredged by Sparrows Point for a gas terminal. It turns out the toxic chemicals were very bad in that bottom. So much for their studies on that one.

The way I read the report, they're still saying that the problem pollution is coming from the watershed ABOVE the dam, just not as much from the sediment trapped by the dam. What happens when the dam no longer stops ANY of the sediment?

The lease is being renegotiated for Conowingo Dam. I see this report as a way for the electric company to get out of paying for any sediment removal.

Maybe the answer is a short term lease from now on.  Any screw ups by DNR in negotiations or Army Corp studies can be corrected much faster.
