Marsha works alongside our DPW&YOU family to help maintain our community and its waterways. As the leader in our environmental assessment and conservation efforts, Marsha takes her work very seriously because it has a direct impact on the Chesapeake Bay.
One of the main causes of watershed pollution comes from stormwater runoff. Water from rainstorms, a.k.a. stormwater, eventually drains and enters our water system, including the Chesapeake Bay. We can’t control rainstorms, but we can control what gets picked up during runoff as it flows over your yard, pavement and parking lots. We focus on three key areas for environmental conservation efforts. These efforts help prevent pollutants like pet waste, leaves, oils, grease, detergents and trash.
Here’s How You Can Help

We love working and living in a County with so many waterways available for use – whether it’s kayaking and boating or sitting back taking in the views. It takes hard work to maintain our waterways, but together we can keep them enjoyable, safe and clean for years to come!
