RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Fans of the Chesapeake Bay now have an online tool to track the progress of the estuary's restoration.
    
Called ChesapeakeProgress, the website gives visitors an overview of the multi-state effort to clean up the bay after decades of neglect. The site shows goals and outcomes of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Agreement involving six states and Washington, D.C.
    
The agreement is aimed at limiting urban and rural pollution from flowing into the bay. The bay's water has become so polluted, vast areas are called "dead zones" because they are devoid of life.
    
The aim of the agreement is to clean up the bay and help restore marine life such as oysters, blue crabs and other species.
