Oyster and Water Monitoring Report -- August 15, 2013
(delivered by John Bacon at the Chesapeake Beach Town Council Meeting)

All 3 creeks flowing to the bay through Chesapeake Beach continue to exhibit good water quality. This is due to the marsh vegetation absorbing the Nitrates and Phosphorous. The heavy rains recently pushed the outflow of Fishing Creek to its highest level since Hurricane Irene. 

During the next month CBOCS will be engaged in a large number of activities. They include:

  • Creating the “Treasures of Fishing Creek” activity book, starting this Saturday.

  • Diving down to the Old Rock Reef to survey and collect oysters during the last week of August. 

  • Unloading the rotating cages, transporting the oysters to the bay and counting spat on September 7, from 1 to 4 PM. 

  • Loading new oysters into the rotating and MGO cages, transporting them to the trail and counting spat on September 14, from 10AM to 1PM. 

During the annual CBOCS meeting in July we were able to identify many other new activities for members. One of the most important is to prepare for additional 5th grade students to take field trips on the Fishing Creek Trail. Several Northern Calvert County Schools have expressed interest. To accomplish this, CBOCS will need some volunteers able to participate on a few school days in the fall and spring.
