State Of The Severn In 2018

Dr. Andrew Muller, associate professor of oceanography at U.S. Naval Academy, and Capt. Diana Muller, with Maritimas, detail the health of the Severn River in 2018.

The Mullers review and explain water quality monitoring data collected during one of the rainiest years on record.
