UMBC Breaking Ground on Major Stream Restoration Project

In the coming months, UMBC will be breaking ground on a new stream restoration project that will enhance ecosystems, storm water management, and the community experience on campus and beyond. This project is funded through a new $1 million grant from the Chesapeake and Atlantic Coastal Bays Trust Fund and a combined $1.4 million investment from the University. 

The stream is a small tributary of the West Branch Herbert Run, which flows through campus by the Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena and bwtech@UMBC. The project will have regional watershed impacts, as Herbert Run is a part of the Patapsco River and Chesapeake Bay watersheds.
