One grant will help fund a Dickenson Run Community stream clean-up effort while the other will help educate and inform residents about the use and benefits of rain barrels.
The Dickenson Run Community Stream Clean-up and Storm Drain Stenciling event was created to increase community participation in the restoration and protection of the Double Pipe Creek and Monocacy River watersheds. This effort will educate residents about these watersheds, provide options to improving water quality, engage residents in a watershed restoration project, and promote collaborative watershed restoration solutions between and among residents and local government. Join the clean-up effort this Saturday, September 6th. Those interested in participating should meet at New Windsor Park (skatepark) at 9am.

The second grant helps residents engage in the restoration of the local and Chesapeake Bay watersheds by providing assistance and education to local homeowners about stormwater and watershed issues, and provides resources for them to take personal action. Ultimately, this program will engage homeowners in a restoration initiative, educate homeowners about local stormwater concerns and provide them with the resources to implement their own low-impact solutions. Residents interested in this program should visit Carroll County’s Water Booth at the Mount Airy Fall Festival or contact the Bureau of Resource Management.
