Watershed Assessment Documents

Frederick County has completed Watershed Studies for the five 8-digit watershed required by the MS4 Permit, as well as more focused assessments of smaller subwatersheds in the Lower and Upper Monocacy Watershed. These watershed studies have assisted the County in identifying additional cost-effective projects to assist in improving water quality in Frederick County and beyond.

Retrofit Assessments
Smaller studies have been conducted in subwatersheds to build upon the larger watershed assessments in order to identify stream restoration and stormwater management controls that could cost-effectively improve watershed conditions.
