Germantown Park Stormwater Management and Stream Restoration Project (Phase II)

 

Project Highlight

 

As a part of the County's effort to protect our waters, eight stormwater ponds and a section of stream within the Germantown Park community were selected for restoration to help reduce stormwater pollution draining into our streams. Four of the eight stormwater ponds and the stream section will be included in this phase of the project. The other four stormwater ponds are part of Germantown Park Stormwater Management and Stream Restoration Project (Phase I).

Various public events will be held throughout the project phases for residents to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project. Public events and project schedules may vary by site. Click on each site tab on the right for more specific information.
