Watervale Creek Restoration Project 

Expected construction start: Winter 2023

Harford County is currently preparing a design for stream restoration at this location. The existing stream is degraded and lacks a stable understory, contributing to high sediment and nutrient loads downstream. The purpose of the project is to improve stream health by stabilizing eroding stream banks and increasing tree buffers along the stream. The project aims to reduce steam bank erosion by lowering or removing stream banks to increase floodplain connectivity, lowering water velocities and decreasing erosive flows.
