The Nanticoke Creekwatchers’ tidal data have achieved the highest standard set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Chesapeake Bay Program and are now Tier III. This means state and federal agencies can use our data for assessments in policy making and management. Great job Creekwatchers, and congratulations!
