Mixed Report on W.Va., Va. Chesapeake Bay Efforts

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A study by two environmental groups shows Virginia and West Virginia are making strides to achieve pollution-reduction goals to clean up the Chesapeake Bay, but are lagging in some areas.

The analysis being released Wednesday found both states achieved their overall pollution-reduction goals for 2013, but each fell short in several categories.

In West Virginia, the shortcomings included efforts to keep cattle out of streams so they don't foul waters that feed into the bay. In Virginia, the state came up short in creating forest buffers to control erosion, among others.

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Choose Clean Water Coalition released the analysis of the two states as part of an incremental assessment of the multistate plan to restore the bay by 2025.
