We have recently conducted Watershed Assessments for the West and Rhode Rivers. These Assessments, in which we partnered with the Center for Watershed Protection, help us develop a game plan to take specific actions to improve the rivers’ health.
We walked the streams, neighborhoods, schools, and boatyards all across the watershed to do an assessment of the current conditions and potential for restoration. This work, funded by the Chesapeake Bay Trust, resulted in a prioritized list of actions to take to help clean up our Rivers.
