ANNAPOLIS- Annapolis Mayor Ellen Moyer said the city intends to test a floating island in a local lagoon that, if successful, could help clean water in the Chesapeake Bay.
Moyer also announced an eco-friendly renovation of a city parking lot and the creation of a private/public partnership to offer property owners tax-exempt, low-interest rate loans to install energy efficient equipment.
The floating island, which would absorb nutrients from the water, will be tested in a lagoon in Back Creek Nature Park.
