Annual Reports: "A Land of Rivers"

Our annual "Anne Arundel County, A Land of Rivers" report summarizes the watershed protection and restoration actions initiated by the Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works and our partners.  In 2012, the County finalized its Watershed Implementation Plan (WIP) to provide goals for improving water quality and watershed health, and to protect and restore natural resources. The County reports annually on progress made towards these goals through innovative and collaborative projects.


"A Land of Rivers" Annual Report - Fiscal Year 2023

"In the tenth year of our watershed restoration efforts and two years into the County’s current 5-year State-issued stormwater permit, we are already over halfway to achieving our current clean water goals. The implementation progress that we’ve made over the past couple of years has positioned us to comply fully with this new permit well in advance of our required benchmarks and to go above and beyond in accelerating the recovery of our local waterways."
