Chesapeake Bay Foundation

"Pollution and other harmful activities degrade the Bay. The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) fights for strong and effective laws and regulations. CBF also works cooperatively with government, business, and citizens in partnerships to protect and restore the Bay. When necessary, we use legal means to force compliance with existing laws.

Since being created in 1967, we have achieved significant milestones to arrest the Bay system's decline and to begin to restore its health. From the landmark EPA study of the Chesapeake Bay in the 1970s to the first interstate Chesapeake Bay Agreement in 1983, from Maryland's historic sewage treatment bond bill in 2004 to Virginia’s comparable legislative commitment in 2005, CBF has been saving the Bay."
