Billy sees that the lake is very polluted. ¨Earlier this year, scientists found plastic in 83 percent of global tap water samples¨ (Newsela.com, Plastics found in stomachs of deepest sea creatures.)
Billy asks the senator, Ben Cardin, if he can help.

The senator tells Congress to help clean the Chesapeake Bay.
The senator passes a new law to keep the bay clean. ¨As amended in 1972, the law became commonly known as the Clean Water Act (CWA). The 1972 amendments: Established the basic structure for regulating pollutant discharges into the waters of the United States. Gave EPA the authority to implement pollution control programs such as setting wastewater standards for industry.¨ "History Of The Clean Water Act | US EPA." US EPA. N. p., 2013. Web. 25 Jan. 2019.
