Maryland’s agricultural community, the state’s largest commercial sector, faces an immediate threat from the growing impacts of saltwater intrusion, in which saltwater from the Chesapeake Bay is compromising groundwater and soil, disrupting communities and rendering arable land useless to traditional farming.

As saltwater cannot be used to irrigate crops or serve as reliable drinking water, saltwater intrusion is becoming increasingly problematic to coastal communities that rely on fresh groundwater for their everyday needs and economic livelihood.
