2017 WPRP Grant Projects
Below is a list of organizations there were awarded funding for water quality improvement projects from the Chesapeake Bay Trust as part of Anne Arundel County's Watershed Restoration Grant Program in 2017.
|Organization||Project Name||Project Description||Funding Amount||Match Amount||Est. Impervious Acres Treated|
|South River Federation||Bacon Ridge Groundwater Recharge Micro-BMP and Outfall Restoration||The BMP will combine traditional bioretention on erodible/high|
infiltration soils with intentional shallow groundwater recharge in a two-phase BMP.
|Anne Arundel County Watershed Stewards Academy||Berrywood Community Cattail Creek Restorations||Berrywood Community Association is partnering with the Watershed Stewards Academy and Maryland DNR to restore the stream and introduce stormwater BMPs to address erosion issues and to improve the water quality of Cattail Creek. Additionally, this project will provide vital habitat by removing a traditional bulkhead, in the community marina, with a living shoreline.||$355,549||$514,890||14.29|
|South River Federation||Turnbull Estates Innovative Bioretention, Oyster Restoration & Living Shoreline Project||This project will couple a bioretention project with an innovative living shoreline restoration approach utilizing the native oyster. Funding will be|
used to implement this new approach with two major outcomes. First: prevent further erosion of the native beach and marsh, and to allow accretion to create additional habitat with a structural shellfish component. Second: use the roadside ditch to infiltrate and process more nutrients than the current "transport" configuration.
|South River Federation||Twin Harbors Shoreline & BMP Project||The project will replace approximately 390 linear feet of existing bulkhead with a living shoreline along Mill Creek of the Magothy River. This shoreline|
project will complement the community's nearby 187 linear foot shoreline installed two years ago. Additionally, this project will include a 4,200 square foot bioretention facility located between the parking lot and shoreline to capture runoff.
|South River Federation||United Church of Christ Bioretention Swale and Pond Retrofit||This project will convert a grass swale into a bioswale and retrofit a pond|
installed back in 1997.
