A week after torrential rains caused severe flooding across large parts of central and eastern Pennsylvania, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan isn’t too pleased with what’s appearing in his state’s backyard. At a state board meeting on Wednesday morning, the Republican governor reportedly called the trees, branches, tires and garbage floating in the Chesapeake Bay are an “economic and ecological crisis,” according to The Morning Call. Waterways in upstream states including Pennsylvania and New York often carry debris and pollutants from the Susquehanna River over Maryland’s Conowingo Dam and into the bay. “To be blunt, we’re literally drowning in Pennsylvania’s trash, and I have a huge problem with that,” added Maryland Board of Public Works comptroller Peter Franchot, who said the trash is posing a hazard for vessels entering the Port of Baltimore. Environmental and emergency management officials in Maryland have been working to remove the debris since opening the dam’s gates last week. Hogan, who chairs the six-state Chesapeake Executive Council, said he will bring the issues to the attention of other member states at a meeting next week. Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia share responsibility for the watershed under a state federal agreement known as the Chesapeake Bay Program.
