Many Living Resources Subcommittee projects matured during 1995 and 1996, with several stream restoration projects hitting the ground. Watershed groups in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia started planting trees and assessing natural resources. Throughout the watershed, the opening of 13 blockages that prevented migratory fish from miles of fish habitat were opened during 1995 and 1996. Wild weather dominated 1996. Huge floods in January and September poured debris, sediment, and nutrients into Chesapeake Bay. One positive effect of the flooding was low salinity, which kept oyster diseases in check.
