St. Mary’s County, Maryland is receiving Federal grant funding to prepare a Watershed
Restoration Action Strategy (WRAS) for the Breton Bay watershed. The WRAS project area
encompasses about 38,500 acres including about 3,260 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.
