Municipalities The Chesapeake Bay is beginning to be heavily polluted. We represent the large city and towns that live by the water. This problem is important to our group because we feel that the River needs to be cleaned up. But in order to stop the pollution then we will have to redo our sewage systems and figure a way to re-route or stop our drain pipes. That means we will have to spend more money to make this happen. This means that there will have to be increases in taxes to pay for the extra employees and for the new buildings and systems. Brian Caleb Jon Jeremy

From: Awsome Ecosystem

Your ideas formed a good basic start to cleaning up the bay, however, I think you should be more spacific and back up your information with facts. This will makle your forum more convincing.

4TH Block Environmental Science Point of View from the Municipalities The bay is important because it is the source of foods in our city. The pollution in the bay causes food sources to become limited in our area, causing our food prices to increase, which we pay higher taxes and have to receive more government help. In order to clean up the Chesepeake bay we the city are willing to correct the problem by cleaning the sewage systems and filter out the industrial system.

People of the city: Due to the fact that our population is rising a new sewage system will have to be used. The municipality has come to an agreement to slightly raise the current tax to create and maintain a clean water supply for the city. We also will be receiving federal support to achieve this. With the increase of city spending money we will create a new sewage system that will take all city water waste and purify it for reuse. Since the recreational use of this river is vital to our city this new system will keep our river clean and open to the public. This water is also used for drinking water which increases the importance to keep it clean. A clean environment is very significant to our community and we hope you feel the same way.
