The Garrett County Department of Planning & Land Management has launched a watershed management website to provide a centralized location for information, resources and news.  The website is designed to encourage and promote public understanding and participation in watershed activities and opportunities.  The website provides maps, publications, and information about past, on-going and planned environmental activities within each watershed.  In addition, website visitors will gain access to available mapping and water quality resources as well as information about funding opportunities and other related data.  
 
The Deep Creek Watershed Management Plan called for better agency coordination, as well as better public access to information.  The watershed website is a collaborative effort between Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Maryland Department of Environment (MDE), and Garrett County as a way to establish regular communication and cooperation on issues, projects and programs involving our Watersheds.  
 
The website can be accessed at: https://www.garrettcounty.org/watershed
 
Any questions regarding this website should be directed to the Watershed Coordinator in the Garrett County Department of Planning & Land Management at (301)334-1923 or via email at garonhalt@garrettcounty.org.
