Bush River
Watershed Characterization


Harford County, Maryland is receiving Federal grant funding to prepare a Watershed Restoration Action Strategy (WRAS) for a project area in the Bush River Basin (Maryland 6-digit watershed). Two Maryland 8-digit watersheds in the WRAS project area are State-identified priorities for restoration: Bush River and Bynum Run. The WRAS project area encompasses nearly 119,600 acres including about 10,845 acres of open water.

As part of WRAS project, the Maryland Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) is providing technical assistance. For example, DNR is working with the County to prepare a Watershed Characterization which is a collection of available water quality related information and identification of issues that may be used as the County generates its Watershed Restoration Action Strategy.
