Freelance reporter Kara Lofton has completed an 8 part series on environmental issues affecting Virginia as reported on WMRA.

The series sets out to “… explore the state of Virginia’s unique environment, specifically its water, air and soil.  How does agriculture affect our drinkable water, and the health of the Chesapeake Bay watershed?  How well are we doing cleaning up industrial pollutants such as mercury?  Are decades-old problems, such as acid rain and runoff from coal-fueled power plants, getting solved?  How clean is the air we breathe?”
