Although the Chesapeake Bay Swim has been an annual event since 1982, the sport of open water swimming in the Chesapeake Bay is growing even more.

The Chesapeake Bay Foundation reports that swimmers have noticed the cleaner water in recent years, but they are worried that the federal government may sharply cut back investments in the Bay just as it is showing so much improvement.
