Plum Gar Stream Restoration Project


This project has been suspended

As a part of the County's effort to reduce sediment input, which pollutes our streams, and enhance aquatic habitat, the county has initiated a Stream Restoration  project. Approximately 1,000 linear feet of the Plum Gar tributary that lies to the east of Frederick Road (Route 355) and just south of Middlebrook Road is being evaluated for restoration. 

The selected reach begins at Wheatfield Dr. and extends east, draining into Great Seneca Creek. This area was identified as a potential restoration site in the Great Seneca Creek and Muddy Branch Watershed Assessment (2011).

Various public events will be held throughout the project phases for resident to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project.
