USACE Holds Meeting on LSRWA Report

A public meeting and webinar on the Lower Susquehanna River Watershed Assessment (LSRWA) report will be held today, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Harford Community College, Bel Air, MD, announced USACE.

Since their construction, the reservoirs behind the three dams along the lower Susquehanna River (Holtwood, Safe Harbor, and Conowingo) have historically acted as effective traps for a portion of pollution from the Susquehanna River, and the nutrients that are often attached, thereby reducing the amount of sand, silt, nitrogen and phosphorus entering the Chesapeake Bay.

A recent assessment indicates that the reservoirs are trapping smaller amounts of sediment and have essentially reached their limit to trap sediment in the long term.

The Lower Susquehanna River Watershed Assessment (LSRWA) team, formed in 2011, has spent two years evaluating these sediment and nutrient issues. Its draft report, released November 13, 2014, includes comprehensive evaluation of the issues, findings and recommendations for management actions in the future to address the flow of pollutants downstream.

A public comment period on the draft LSRWA report is now open until January 9, 2015.
