A very good story. Bummers they're introduced, but I guess you can't have
everything. Has the Maryland State Highway Administration stopped storing
extra road salt under bridges? They had a salt pile about 30' high under
the I-68 bridge, immediately next to the creek- a buddy of mine's MS thesis
was supposed to be on the effects of road salt on fish and invertebrate
distributions. I think he was seeing salinities on the order of 15-20ppt (!)
in some areas of the creek near roads... and we found a lot of shell
material, but few live mussels.
