Plan to put wastewater into Maryland trout streams raises heated debate

Trout are among the most highly prized of freshwater fish; their presence in a stream is a sign that the water is clean, cold and rich in all the things fish need to survive, grow and reproduce.


Anglers, environmental groups, and at least one streamside landowner are voicing concern about the Maryland’s Department of the Environment’s tentative decision to permit a sewage plant to discharge into two Maryland streams. They say they’re worried that the treated wastewater, particularly its temperature, may make the streams untenable for the brown trout found in each.
