Deep Creek Lake Watershed Management Plan

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Garrett County have partnered to develop a comprehensive watershed management plan for Deep Creek Lake. The Deep Creek Watershed Management Plan will serve as a comprehensive, best practices guide to ensure that one of Maryland’s most visited, revenue-generating sites is protected far into the future. In addition to protecting the lake’s sensitive natural resources, the plan will address water quality and recreational activities like swimming, fishing, boating and scenic viewing.  The Final Plan, a "Response to Public Comments" and other information can be found on the DNR Lake Management Plan website.
 
The Garrett County Commissioners approved adoption of the Final Plan at their public meeting on October 7, 2014.  However, the Commissioners deferred implementation of the Final Plan to the discretion of the newly elected County Commissioners. 

The Draft Deep Creek Watershed Management Plan was announced at the 2014 State of the Lake meeting on July 24th at Garrett College. Thank you to all who have contributed comments to the draft plan and provided input throughout the process.  Your ideas, concerns and comments helped to form both the Plan document and a partnership among many organizations and individuals who, by continuing to work together, can move forward to achieve the vision for the watershed.
