Worcester County, one of five counties participating in the 2005 WRAS program, has selected the Assawoman Bay Watershed (Basin number: 02130102) for restoration and protection. Assawoman Bay Watershed, one of the "Northern Coastal Bays" is protected from the Atlantic Ocean by Fenwick Island (Maps 1 & 2: Deer Creek Watershed and WRAS Project Area). The Assawoman Bay watershed is prioritized in the Maryland Clean Water Action Plan as a Category 1 watershed for restoration, which recognizes the presence of water quality impairments that need improvement (MDNR 1998).
