So how do watermen deal with all of the debris headed further downstream?
ABC2 News' Don Harrison talked with people who work further down the bay to find out.
I'm at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
The waters that feed into here and effect the bay are the Severn River, the Magothy, and the Chester River.
But even a greater effect comes North of here, the Conowingo Dam.
Joe Cap has worked on the Bay for more than 20 years.
He knows it's not just the water at the upper bay that gets pushed down here when they release the dam water.
Any rain fall and run off from Pennsylvania and New York is part of the water we are dealing with when it floods.
