“The report looks fantastic… it was difficult to pull together with the added goal for sediment reductions but it works really well as written.”
~ Christine Buckley, Harford County DPW ~
Harford County Department of Public Works (DPW) hired BayLand to conduct a sediment abatement study which included significant field observations and measurements to identify and calculate sediment loadings to the stream’s tidal outfall. The work included identifying opportunities to implement retrofits, developing and designing concepts and cost estimates, calculating pollutant load reductions of proposed retrofits and preparing a Small Watershed Action Plan to be submitted to EPA for approval. The purpose of the study was to prepare a strategic plan to reduce sedimentation to Foster Branch to minimize the amount of dredging and tidal water impacts while providing an action plan for improving the overall watershed water quality and habitat value.
