State of The Severn Report

November 20, 2018 - 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Annapolis, MD

Join us for Dr. Andrew Muller's presentation of the State of The Severn Report.

Find out what why the Severn River has a permanent dead zone in Round Bay and suffers from hypoxic squeezing (lack of oxygen in the water) and how stormwater runoff pollution adversely affects water quality in the the river.

As professor of oceanography at the U.S. Naval Academy, Dr. Muller has access to advanced sonar and robotic "submarines" to create a detailed view of water quality in the Severn River, what causes the river's woes and what can be done to turn things around and improve water quality.
