County Asks For Input On Loch Raven Watershed Protection

A meeting will be held in Glen Arm on Jan. 23.

Baltimore County is looking for input from the public as they launch an effort to improve the Loch Raven watershed along the east side of the reservoir.

A meeting will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. Jan. 23 at St. John's Lutheran Church (13300 Manor Road) to share information about and hear public contributions to a new Small Watershed Action Plan.

The plan is being introduced by the Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainablility and the Gunpowder Valley Conservancy, a local nonprofit.

Upcoming restoration efforts, including those aimed at restoring the health of streams and improving the quality of drinking water, will be guided by the Small Watershed Action Plan, according to a news release from the county.

The planning area encompasses the east side of Loch Raven Reservoir north to Jacksonville and Phoenix and east to Manor Road, the release states.

For more information, call Erin Wisnieski at 410-887-5683.

Hmm - most of the development (along with Pine Ridge and TGCC) and impervious surfaces are on the west side of the Loch Raven watershed. Mostly ag land on the east - I agree that farm runoff needs to be targeted but the neighborhoods and developed areas on the west side are a huge source of pollution and storm water runoff.
