For the first time in years the health of Virginia’s largest river is considered above average. That’s the word from the The James River Association. The non profit advocacy group released its annual State of the James Report.
On a grading scale that takes into account wildlife, pollution, and habitat... the James earned a B-minus, better than the C-plus of 2013.
Bill Street is CEO of the James River Association.
“The biggest reason for that improvement is addressing pollution from wastewater from our sewage treatment plants and industry.”
