Protecting the Valley

Small Watershed Action Plan (SWAP)

PHG worked with the Baltimore County Department of Environmental Protection and Sustainability (EPS) which is creating a SWAP for watersheds in the County in partnership with interested local organizations. PHG is a leading partner for the Patapsco watershed. The County's vision for the SWAP is to have a healthy, vibrant Patapsco watershed which protects high quality streams and supports diverse aquatic life. The watershed conserves treasured and valuable natural resources including forests, parkland, and stream buffers and it supports a balance of healthy communities and thriving commercial and industrial enterprises. The watershed also protects historic features, treasured landscapes and residential character while accommodating adequate development for future generations. For more information on the SWAP goals and activities, including a characterization report and action plan for the Patapsco watershed in Baltimore County, go to http://www.baltimorecountymd.gov/patapsco.
