Who Will Stop the Sedimentation?

Dear Bay Weekly:
    I have very much enjoyed Steve Carr’s columns. Very well written, most entertaining, and they cut to the chase. A suggestion for a future one following up on Who Will Stop the Rain? [March 31]: Sedimentation of rivers and streams caused by in-stream channel erosion after the development is gone and all correct stormwater management is in place. There are countless examples of this throughout the county. I am watching a stream unravel in the headwaters of the South River, in a mostly forested watershed. A new subdivision that was built following all the laws is the cause.
