I just saw on the news that because of this year's astronomical rain amounts the Chesapeake Bay has had the lowest mark for water pollution rain runoff in 10 years. Here's the trick grading answer. It as been lowered from a  (c- to   d+ )? I'm not sure what the difference is? The Susquehanna river  is blamed for most of the problem as the biggest contributor from runoff from Pa. mostly. The Susquehanna's water flow is the largest waterflow  into the Chesapeake at  19 million gallons per minute .The other rivers that are large contributors to freshwater runoff are the Potomac, Rap, York, and James.

The letter grades should not be a reflection of the condition of the bay but rather a score on how well the government is doing cleaning it up.
