Upper Emmord Branch Stream Study (in progress)

Emmord Branch, a tributary to Reardon Inlet, is in Joppa. The watershed, or area of land that drains to the stream, is 1,400 acres. The headwaters is near the Edgewood Recreation Park on Trimble Road. The Upper Emmord Branch Stream Study will only include the area north of the border of Aberdeen Proving Ground to the headwaters, or approximately 75% of the total watershed (shown below as the green line) .

The Upper Emmord Branch Stream Study is scheduled to begin in February 2018.

A draft report is anticipated in summer 2018 and will be available for public comment. The plan will include a list of potential restoration projects to improve stream health.
