Woodlawn Stream Restoration


As a part of the County's effort to help reduce stormwater pollution that drains into our streams and enhance aquatic habitat, the County is collaborating with the Maryland-National Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, on a stream restoration project. Approximately 2,000ft of the Woodlawn tributary, also known as the Sandy Spring tributary, from north of Ednor Rd., in between Snowden Woods Ln. and Alexander Manor Dr. will be restored. The restoration project includes stabilizing eroded streambanks, restoring stable habitat, creating wetlands, and reforesting around the stream.

Residents can also participate in the County's RainScapes Rewards program to install rain gardens, rain barrels, and other attractive stormwater management features on their property to help reduce pollution. The cost of installation can be partially rebated by the County through the program. The application for the RainScapes Rewards program is available online.

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.
