Watershed Management
View the new Frederick County Stream Survey here.  View watershed reports here.

In case of any spill or discharge of a suspected hazardous or harmful nature, please notify 911 immediately. If it is a non-emergency, please call Jessica Seipp at 301.600.1350 or report it here.


The Watershed Management Section has several goals for water quality in Frederick County, including:
  • pollution prevention
  • public outreach and education
  • assessment of current watershed conditions
  • support of efforts for improvement and protection where needed

This program was founded under a NPDES Permit from the Environmental Protection Agency.  NPDES stands for National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System. The permit deals primarily with non-point source pollution, which is pollution that runs off of parking lots, fields, lawns, roads, and other impervious surfaces when it rains.

Other Responsibilities
The section also coordinates the Monocacy & Catoctin Watershed Alliance, a non-advocacy group that works on water quality and habitat issues. Publications, maps, and data related to Watershed Management can be found at the Watershed Alliance website.

Note that the Monocacy & Catoctin Watershed Alliance web site is external to the Frederick County Government web site; please review our Disclaimer.
