Upper Patuxent River
Watershed Characterization


Anne Arundel and Prince George’s Counties, Maryland are receiving Federal grant funding and State technical assistance to prepare a Watershed Restoration Action Strategy (WRAS) for the Upper Patuxent River watershed. This Maryland 8-digit watershed (02131104) is ranked as a Priority Watershed in need of restoration by the 1998 Maryland Clean Water Action Plan. Anne Arundel and Prince George’s Counties applied for grant funding and volunteered to develop a bi-county strategy in this watershed to improve water quality and in-stream habitat using Low Impact Development (LID) techniques and restoration projects.

The purpose of the Watershed Characterization is to assist Anne Arundel and Prince George’s Counties in collecting information and identifying issues that may be used as the Counties generate the Watershed Restoration Action Strategy.
