Swimmer's Ear - September 2004

Noted Chesapeake Bay activist Bernie Fowler originated this low-tech water quality test as a way to measure sediment and nutrient pollution loads and as a way of comparing current river conditions with those of his youth when he could wade out into the Patuxent River and still see his sneakers when he was neck deep.

Former state senator Bernie Fowler was waiting for a news conference to begin yesterday when what appeared to be President-elect Barack Obama's motorcade drove by. (At least we were pretty sure it was his.
The timing fit his visit to Capitol Hill, but there are a lot of motorcades in the district.) Mr. Obama was on his way to meet with congressional leaders about an economic stimulus package likely to include hundreds of billions in new spending, so Mr. Fowler, a longtime Chesapeake Bay advocate from Calvert County, had an idea. Mr. Fowler, 84, who is one of the lawsuit's plaintiffs, is tired of waiting. "There's only two ways that we'll see any drastic change in the Chesapeake Bay, which is long overdue," he said. Mr. Fowler's $20 billion figure might have been a joke, but the idea of the bay cleanup as a source of economic stimulus certainly is not. Indeed, if the cleanup is going to work, that might be one key: not simply pitching it as the right thing to do, but figuring out how to make money by doing it. "Talk about an economic engine," Mr. Fowler mused. "We've been pretending much too long," Mr. Fowler said.

Earlier this year recognitions for former Maryland Senator Bernie Fowler for his 50 years of work to restore the Chesapeake Bay were advanced in each state.
The second week of June was selected because it book-ends two long-standing, successful outreach events in the watershed. During the first Saturday in June, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation hosts Clean the Bay Day during which thousands of volunteers roll up their sleeves and take direct action to clean their waterways. In Maryland, on the second Sunday in June, Bernie Fowler traditionally holds his annual Patuxent River Wade-In event, attended by hundreds over the past 28 years, from schoolchildren to governors, U.S. Congressmen and Senators. Legislature Honors Former Senator Bernie Fowler Steny Hoyer and Bernie Fowler wade into the Patuxent River at the 2008 Patuxent River Wade-In. The wade-in, founded by Fowler in 1988, draws attention to the health of the Patuxent River and the Chesapeake Bay by having people wade into the water until they can no longer see their feet. The Honorable Bernie Fowler, former Senator and current member of the Chesapeake Bay Commission, was honored today in the Maryland House and Senate for his 50 years of work to restore the Chesapeake Bay, including 32 years as a Commission member. The action coincides with similar recognitions in Virginia and Pennsylvania led by his Commission colleagues.

Bernie Fowler honored for 50 years of Bay advocacy
Bay Journal - Article: Bernie Fowler honored for 50 years of Bay advocacy Bay Journal Search the Bay Journal site: Search Bernie Fowler honored for 50 years of Bay advocacy Bernie Fowler's annual Patuxent wade-ins have become a tradition to symbolize caring for the Chesapeake Bay. (Photo by Dave Harp) Fowler, a former senator representing Southern Maryland as well as a current member of the Chesapeake Bay Commission, received the award just one month shy of his 92nd birthday. The recognition comes after efforts to recognize Fowler in the Virginia and Pennsylvania legislatures, which his commission colleagues put forth this year. Virginia's resolution called Fowler a "tireless and persistent champion" of restoring the Bay and his beloved Patuxent River, where he nurtured his love of oysters, crabs and lush Bay grasses. Fowler -- who was in Florida, so his son accepted the award on his behalf -- called the recognition "a very, very humbling experience. It was totally unexpected." So iconic in the Bay movement that most people simply call him Bernie, Fowler is a symbol for many of grace and persistence. He began his fight to save the Patuxent River more than 50 years ago, when he noticed declines in oyster, fish and crab populations around the same time that upstream counties, including Howard, were growing. He felt certain that increased growth and more discharges from sewage treatment plants were fouling the river. When he couldn't get the regulators' attention through meetings and letters. Fowler, then a Calvert County commissioner, joined with the commissioners of St. Mary's and Charles counties and sued the Environmental Protection Agency to tighten the treatment plants' discharge limits. With the help of researchers from the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science in Solomons -- who had hard evidence to support the complaint - the counties prevailed. The EPA reduced the plants' discharge limits for nitrogen and phosphorus. And Fowler helped pass legislation barring sewage discharges from Calvert County into his beloved river. (Treated wastewater is applied to the land instead.) Back then, Fowler said, he thought it was possible to restore the river, and perhaps even the whole Bay, in 20 years. Fowler represented Calvert County in the state Senate from 1983 to 1994. Those were heady years for environmental protection. The first Chesapeake Bay Agreement, which Fowler helped inspire, came in 1983; the next year, the legislature passed the Maryland Critical Area law, restricting development close to the shoreline. To keep the clean-the-river movement going, Fowler began wading into the Patuxent to gauge its health by seeing how deep he could go before losing sight of his feet. Every spring since 1988, he's donned coveralls and white sneakers and walked hand-in-hand with friends, family and others into the river to find out how clear the water is. His wade-ins have inspired others to do the same in many communities around the watershed. The Patuxent Wade-in is always the second Sunday in June. This year's event is scheduled for June 12 at Jefferson Patterson Park. "Bernie knows the magic of clean water and a productive Chesapeake Bay," said Ann Swanson, the bay commission's executive director. Last year, the Sneaker Index that Fowler pioneered measured 44.5 inches. That was the highest since 1997. But Fowler recalls how when he was a young man, he could stand chest-deep in the river and still see his toes. That 1960s mark he set of 57 inches has become the target for restoring the Patuxent. The early 2000s were a tough period for both the river and Fowler, who lamented at times that political leaders didn't seem to have the will to do what was necessary. But by then Fowler could no longer say that all of the pollution came from upstream; Southern Maryland had become one of the fastest growing areas in the state, with both Washington, D.C. commuters and retirement home seekers contributing to the boom. In the 1980s, when Fowler started his push for the Patuxent, the watershed had a population of 100,000. "Moses, it took him 40 years to travel a short distance, and then poor fellow, he didn't get to go into the Promised Land," Fowler said. "I've kind of settled on the fact that Bernie Fowler doesn't need to see it done. Bernie Fowler honored for 50 years of Bay advocacy | 02/16/16
