St. Mary's River Watershed Association is pursuing stormwater mitigation projects

 

With summer in full swing, St. Mary's River Watershed Association is pursuing stormwater mitigation projects funded by a grant from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Chesapeake Small Watersheds Grant.

 

Homeowners, Sarah Tyson and David Kung, had a beautiful garden recently installed by our hard-working volunteer and student interns.

This may have been one of the St. Mary's River Watershed Association's more difficult gardens to dig as the ground was laden with huge roots and a massive tree stump.

With a little problem-solving and ample able bodies, the associations's first rain garden of the summer was completed in June.

At 347 square feet, it is association's largest garden so far that collects runoff from the home and garage roofs, as well as two driveways.

Since then, we have completed three additional gardens. A big thanks to homeowners Marilyn and Edward Barrett, Randy and Kim Larsen, and Barbara Bowman for being hosts and contributing to a healthier river! The association still has funding for the 50/50 cost share program, so it's not too late to contact the association about one for your home.
