Does Maryland have clean rivers?

Like just about everywhere in the United States, you’ll find some pollution in Maryland’s rivers and waterways. However, residents and organizations continue to work hard to ensure that the state’s rivers are as clean as possible. One organization, Environment Maryland, helped initiate the Clean Water Network, which consists of volunteers and community members who help restore polluted rivers and waterways and maintain those areas with already clean water.
