Documents for Review

Periodically, Frederick County's Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources (OSER) requests residents to provide input on various plans, assessments, or reports.

Financial Assurance Plans

In 2012, the State passed a bill requiring Frederick County to provide a five-year funding strategy to address the requirements of the MS4 permit in the form of a Financial Assurance Plan and Watershed Protection and Restoration Program Annual Report. These reports are submitted to the Maryland Department of the Environment for review, and are released to the public for a comment period of 30 days. 

Currently, there are no documents for review at this time.

Watershed Studies

OSER's permit requires the County to develop detailed watershed assessments for the entire County and restore twenty percent (20%) of the impervious area that is not already restored to the maximum extent practicable (MEP). The watersheds are assessed by identifying, ranking, and grouping potential opportunities for restorations. Residents can provide input on the solutions of identified projects, or any other potential opportunities for stormwater restoration. Opportunities can be identified by residents, and will be evaluated by County staff and ranked similarly to the projects in the watershed assessments.
