Sam's Branch Stream Study (2012)

Sam's Branch, a tributary to Otter Point Creek, is in Edgewood. The watershed, or area of land that drains to the stream, is 370 acres. The headwaters is near the intersection of Willoughby Beach and Trimble roads.


The Sam's Branch Small Watershed Action Plan and supplemental appendices were completed in 2012. This plan outlines potential restoration projects to improve stream health.
