Protecting the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries is one of our highest priorities. This activity helps us to accomplish this goal by completing necessary drainage construction work on County-maintained property, thereby controlling the flow of water and sediment into the bay. Work includes construction of new drainage systems including inlets, pipes headwalls, and/or placement of outfall protection. Occasionally, the work might also include replacement of major components of existing drainage systems, such as catch basins or gabion baskets.
Requests for the resolution of drainage problems should be directed to the appropriate road district. Road districts are open from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. A supervisor will investigate your concern and respond to you within one week (one day if it is a hazard) to advise you of a schedule for any needed work.
