Loch Raven Watershed Restoration Plan
This document summarizes proposed and potential restoration strategies to meet local Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDL) requirements associated with the urban wasteload allocation (WLA) for Loch Raven watershed within Carroll County, Maryland. This document is an ongoing, iterative process that will be updated as needed to track implementation of structural and nonstructural projects, alternative Best Management Practices (BMP’s), and any program enhancements that assist in meeting Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved TMDL stormwater WLAs. Updates will evaluate the success of Carroll County’s watershed restoration efforts and document progress towards meeting approved stormwater WLAs. Some of the strategies presented in this document are considered “potential” and additional assessment will be required before any project is considered final or approved.
