Watershed Management Program

The watershed management program develops watershed plans and strategies in collaboration with community partners, especially local watershed associations, to meet pollution reduction requirements to protect Baltimore County's water resources.

Baltimore County consists of 14 major watersheds. Watershed managers from EPS evaluate protection and restoration strategies for the natural resources throughout our watersheds. Small Watershed Action Plans (SWAP) are being developed collaboratively with citizens, businesses, farmers and watershed organizations. The completed SWAPs are available on each watershed page.

Baltimore County will be hosting a public community meeting (PDF) to present our progress on the SWAP for Lower Gunpowder Falls (rural areas), and gather input from stakeholders. The community meeting will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday March 7, 2017 and will be held in the Great Hall at the Glen Meadows Retirement Community at 11630 Glen Arm Road in Glen Arm, Maryland 21057.
