General Info:
Mill Creek Headwaters Restoration Project Over the past eight years, the community has worked hand in hand with the Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works (DPW) on the multifaceted Mill Creek Headwaters Restoration Project in Arnold, Maryland. The plan was developed with close coordination with federal and State regulatory agencies, community representatives and the Mill Creek Scientific Review Committee. The total project involves over 27,000 SF of marsh plantings, 62,000 SF of environmental dredging totaling 7,000 CY of material and 21,000 SF of SAV preservation and enhancement area. The purpose of this project is to remove sediment deposited by the December 17, 2005 36-inch wastewater main collapse in the tidal headwaters of Mill Creek and to restore shallow water habitat while enhancing environmental features. The goal is to create a riverine system with a low flow meandering stream-like area surrounded by flat shallow terraces that accumulate some sediment and provide a transition to the existing grade. These shallow terraces are designed to allow for SAV growth and will be enhanced with plantings. The deeper headwaters area will be protected for SAV preservation and enhancement. On the shores, living shoreline areas of marsh habitat are to be created by eliminating a large area of phragmites and re-vegetating with native plants. The headwaters restoration and associated watershed retrofits will improve water clarity, water quality and aquatic habitat in upper Mill Creek. Construction on the living shoreline in the headwaters is currently underway. Contractors are working to install biodegradable coir rolls which will provide stabilization along the streamline bank and are planting native species in the waterway. A few days after planting began, horseshoe crabs were found mating in the headwaters and fish swimming near the shoreline. From March through June 2011, volunteers have been growing underwater grasses through the Grasses for the Masses program organized by members of Girl Scout Troop 57 and co-sponsored by the Magothy River Association, Anne Arundel Community College  and DPW.
