Saving an urban river
Today in the Hampton Roads Virginian Pilot (sorry, but it'll always be the Naw-fok paper to me), Scott Harper explains the next step in the effort to clean up the Elizabeth River.
Already, schools, businesses and industry have been doing their part to clean up what was once a pretty dirty river. Now, homes are getting into the act. If they agree to do certain things - reduce fertilizer, preserve buffers - they put a flag on the property. Nothing like a little peer pressure to get people to think more about their actions.
As the Bay Journal delves more into urban issues, I'm excited to check in on this project. Definitely interesting.
