Explorations!Field Trip: Storm Water Management and Water Quality Protection Sites
Purpose: Observe examples of how City of Rockville has curtailed erosion of streams and controlled periodic flooding in several neighborhoods in the Watts Branch watershed, and improved the quality of water draining into the Potomac. Also, observe a stream restoration project in early design phase.
Observations: Gain understanding of basic principles of environmental science and engineering practices used throughout the Metropolitan region to protect property and water quality in suburban setting from recurring flooding, as applied by the Environmental Division, Department of Public Works. Most sites are public parks or 'green' playgrounds tucked amid developments. The Plan: Division Manager will guide our group to four accessible sites (Woodley Gardens Park, Upper Watts Branch neighborhoods, College Gardens Park). Travel by vehicle caravan (free parking in parks and on street), all within a few miles of each other. Trip limited to 22 observers, middle school age and up.
