For decades environmental groups fought for states in the Chesapeake Bay watershed to clean up the polluted waterway. That effort culminated in a 2009 executive order for the Environmental Protection Agency to oversee the job. Under federal enforcement the cleanup has borne fruit: for the first time in years scientific indicators show the state of the Chesapeake’s health has improved markedly. But environmentalists now worry that President-Elect Donald Trump’s pick to head the agency, an opponent of EPA oversight, may dismantle years of progress. Kojo explores what’s at stake for the Chesapeake and the farmers who bear the brunt of the cleanup as the EPA changes leadership.
