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.

OrganizationProject NameProject DescriptionFunding AmountMatch AmountEst. Impervious Acres Treated
South River FederationBacon Ridge Groundwater Recharge Micro-BMP and Outfall RestorationThe 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 AcademyBerrywood Community Cattail Creek RestorationsBerrywood 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$514,89014.29
South River FederationTurnbull Estates Innovative Bioretention, Oyster Restoration & Living Shoreline ProjectThis 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 FederationTwin Harbors Shoreline & BMP ProjectThe 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 FederationUnited Church of Christ Bioretention Swale and Pond RetrofitThis project will convert a grass swale into a bioswale and retrofit a pond
installed back in 1997.
 Totals $917,215$824,36060.31
