The Middle Patuxent Environmental Foundation (MPEF) is conducting a stormwater assessment in a one-mile square area of the Middle Patuxent Environmental Area (MPEA) adjacent to the Harper’s Choice neighborhood.
The two primary goals of this project are:
- To identify and prioritize drainage issues related to stormwater runoff; and
- To develop control strategies for invasive species in the MPEA.
Work will begin on June 11th and be completed before the end of June. During the project, you may notice a small field crew working in the MPEA.
Results of the assessment will be shared with adjacent community members in the early fall. MPEF will host a community workshop in early fall 2015 to share results of the assessment project. The workshop will also include a number of demonstrated stormwater management practices that homeowners could voluntarily employ on their own properties to help protect the MPEA. During the workshop, homeowners can meet one on one with a watershed restoration specialist to discuss any specific issues or concerns they may have. More information on the workshop will be made available to residents in the coming months.
