Gunners Branch Stream Restoration

As a part of the County's effort to help reduce sediment input, which pollutes our streams, and enhance aquatic habitat, the County has initiated a stream restoration project. Approximately 8,000 linear feet of the Gunners Branch and a tributary that lies to the west of Gunners Branch are being evaluated for restoration. The two stream restoration reaches begin at Middlebrook Road and continue until they flow into Gunners Lake. These two areas were identified as potential restoration sites in the Great Seneca Creek Watershed Study.

Various public events will be held throughout the project for residents to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project. Check out the project schedule at the bottom of the page for more information!
