We are making progress!

Each year, spring and fall clean-ups are coordinated targeting areas that need attention based on community input or areas identified by the BRRC. With the continuation of clean ups, community outreach programs and a variety of other actions identified by the newly developed Tidal Back River Small Watershed Action Plan (SWAP), plans are put in place to take a comprehensive look at the communities surrounding the river and provide a variety of activities that can assist in reviving Back River

One of the main issues facing our organization is litter, and we have met that challenge head on.

Herring Run, Red House Run and Stemmers Run empty into the Back River. Each of these streams travel through some of the most urbanized and industrialized sections of Baltimore City and County. We eventually see litter from each of these streams, carried by storm water generated by the vast expanse of impervious surface in the region.
