The Susquehanna River flows strongly past the Conowingo Dam near Conowingo, Md., on March 11, 2015.

The Conowingo Dam lies just above where the Susquehanna River empties into the Chesapeake Bay. In response to the recent heavy rains, the dam’s floodgates have been opened as a safety precaution. But now, the resulting debris and pollution pouring into the Chesapeake are sparking debate between state officials and the owner of the dam, Exelon Corp., as to who’s responsible for cleanup.
