Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and
Sustainability (DEPS) and the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy will co-host a
community meeting to present the draft Small Watershed Action Plan
(SWAP) for the Loch Raven East watershed.
The planning area wraps around the eastern side of the Loch Raven Reservoir, north to Phoenix and Jacksonville, and east to Manor Road.
People will have the opportunity to share their ideas about the SWAP and find out how they can help. The meeting will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at St. John's Lutheran Church, located at 13300 Manor Road in Glen Arm, MD 21057 (at the corner of Dulaney Valley and Manor Roads).
Community input is integral to the plan, which will guide restoration efforts in the watershed to improve stream health and positively affect water quality in this reservoir that provides drinking water to 1.8 million people in the Baltimore region, as well as improving water quality in local steams and the Chesapeake Bay.For more information, people may call 410-887-5683 and speak to Erin Wisnieski.
