Valley Park Stormwater Pond


The County has selected Valley Park stormwater pond (Pond - 11475)  within the Magruder Branch Stream Valley Park, Damascus for upgrade and improvements that will bring the pond into compliance with performance and safety standards, and will replace aging infrastructure within the pond.  The pond improvements will also have significant environmental benefits downstream in Magruder Branch as well as within and around the pond itself, such as improved water quality, reduced stormflows, improved habitat for pond life and pollinators.

A public meeting was held during the concept stage of this project for residents living near the pond to learn about, and provide input on, the project design.  A follow-up public meeting was later held to inform the community about final plans, upcoming construction activity and respond to questions and concerns.
