[ARCHIVED] County to Launch Stormwater Management Prototype Project

Stormwater Management Project


State and local officials will hold a tap-opening ceremony at 10 a.m. on June 5 to launch an innovative project to demonstrate stormwater management options for property owners. The project, located at 330 Montevue Lane in Frederick, is a collaboration of the Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources, the University of Maryland Extension Services, and the Master Gardener Program.

“This project uses captured rainwater to feed beautiful gardens,” said County Executive Jan Gardner.  “Eight different techniques to harvest rainfall are showcased so visitors can learn about methods that might work for them.  Frederick County is leading by example with the management of stormwater runoff.” 

The demonstration gardens are considered the first stormwater management demo project in the mid-Atlantic region.  The project will also provide educational opportunities for those who want to replicate similar projects.

See the attached media advisory for more information or view the project story map.
