Carroll County, Maryland is receiving Federal grant funding to prepare a Watershed
Restoration Action Strategy (WRAS) for a project area in the Liberty Reservoir watershed. This
Maryland 8-digit watershed ranked in the highest State priority for protection and restoration. The
WRAS project area encompasses the Carroll County portion of the watershed covering 87,040 acres
including about 2,137 acres of open water. The remaining 17,762 acres of the watershed are in
Baltimore County, Maryland.
As part of WRAS project, the Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) is providing
technical assistance. For example, DNR is working with the County to prepare a Watershed
Characterization which is a collection of available water quality related information and identification of
issues that may be used as the County generates its Watershed Restoration Action Strategy.
