Watershed Restoration Capital Improvement Projects
All of the watersheds within Frederick County are assessed by identifying, ranking, and grouping potential opportunities to fulfill the MS4 permit requirements for watershed restoration.
Currently, the Office of Sustainability and Environmental resources (OSER) has the remaining three watershed Studies underway within the Catoctin Creek, Double Pipe Creek, and Potomac Direct Watersheds. It is anticipated these Watershed Studies will be completed by February 2019. OSER would like your feedback on these assessments to ensure we captured all potential opportunities. Once these assessments are ready for review, we will send a public notice through various media sources including our Newsletter and will be posted here on our Documents for Review page!

The following projects are actively in the design phase for construction:
