The Public Works Department has been implementing a variety of stormwater improvement projects in Bowie, as required by the State of Maryland to improve the quality of streams that drain to the Chesapeake Bay. One of these projects, currently in design, is a stream restoration project along Saddlebrook Branch, which originates in the Rockledge neighborhood (near Rockledge Drive and Rambling Lane). The project will include tree removal, stabilization of the stream banks and sanitary sewer line, creation of in-stream pools to improve habitat, and native plantings.
An informational stakeholders meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, at 7 p.m. at the Rockledge Elementary School where City staff will provide information on what to expect during and after construction. This will be followed by a question and answer session. For more information, please contact Tiffany Wright, Watershed Manager, at 301-809-3043 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
