About the project:
The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) is partnering with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to improve approximately 11,740 linear feet of Charles Branch tributaries at Rosaryville State Park in Upper Marlboro. Stream restoration reduces stream bank erosion and the transport of sediment and nutrients to waterways. The stream improvements will reconfigure the stream layout to improve aquatic habitat, reduce bank erosion, and provide native plants. This work is being performed as part of stormwater discharge permits and Chesapeake Bay restoration requirements from the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
