Miles River
Watershed Characterization

Talbot County, one of five counties participating in the 2005 WRAS program, has selected the Miles River Watershed (Basin number: 02130502) for restoration and protection (Maps 1 & 2). The Miles River Watershed, part of the Upper Eastern Shore Tributary Strategy Basin, is prioritized in the Maryland Clean Water Action Plan as a Category 1 watershed for restoration, which recognizes the presence of water quality impairments that need improvement (MDNR 1998).
