Each year, hundreds of tons of rubbish are washed into the Patapsco watershed from stormwater runoff, or dumped into the watershed, creating a nuisance and an eyesore, and endangering birds, fish and other wildlife that ingest or become entangled in the mess. Dan Fesperman describes the area as 'the lost world of the Baltimore waterfront. Part urban, part rural, part industrial, it is a mud-smelling zone of beached garbage and besieged wildlife, a place where the squawk of the heron competes daily with the wail of the freight train. Hidden from most, even as it is crossed hourly by thousands of cars far overhead, it is the city's biggest and greenest "inner harbor."
