Using stream and wetland restoration systems to achieve clean water objectives

May 30, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Anne Arundel County, MD, like many municipalities in the Chesapeake Bay region, has aggressive, regulatory clean water goals and has authorized hundreds of millions of dollars to achieve those aims. Rather than simply focusing on numeric attainment of its MS4 permit and Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) goals, the County has tried – where possible – to emulate the functions of historical, integrated stream and wetland systems throughout the jurisdiction to provide both water quality and habitat benefits in a dramatically manipulated landscape. This presentation will focus on a number of case studies, and discuss the evolution of the approach over time.
