Oyster and Water Monitoring Report -- September 19, 2013
(delivered by John Bacon at the Chesapeake Beach Town Council Meeting)

Fishing Creek and Brownies Creek exhibited good TMDL water quality. North Beach Marsh Creek had an excessive amount of pollutants. 

Fishing Creek oyster health monitoring was in acceptable limits.

Last month was very active for CBOCS with the following:

  • Creating the “Treasures of Fishing Creek” activity book is progressing toward an October debut at the North Beach Bay and Market Fest. 10 volunteers are participating.

  • On August 26 - The survey of the Old Rock Reef produced an excellent video and many samples of live oysters. Calvert County Rescue and Dive Team, North Beach Volunteer Department and Jay Berry participated.

  • On September 7 - 70,000 one year old oysters were transported to the bay. 41 volunteers participated. 

  • On September 14 - 100,000 new oysters were loaded into the cages. The rotating cages were transported to the trail and the MGO cages were sent to individual piers. 40 volunteers participated. 

Preparations were made for 5th grade field trips by Beach Elementary, Windy Hill and Sunderland schools. These events will be held during late October. Requests from other schools are being reviewed. 

CBOCS now has 113 volunteers.
