Foster Branch at Stillmeadow Restoration Project 

Expected construction start Summer 2020 (as of November 2018)

Harford County is currently preparing a design for stream restoration at this location.  The purpose of the project is to improve stream health by stabilizing eroding stream banks, stabilizing failing stormdrain outfalls and increasing tree buffers along the stream.

Project Location


On Thursday, November 2, 2017, Harford County Department of Public Works, Watershed Protection and Restoration Office held a meeting to discuss a concept design for a stream and outfall restoration in the Foster Branch community between Stillmeadow Drive and Foster Knoll Drive.  The purpose for this project is to improve the health of Foster Branch, Gunpowder River and Chesapeake Bay by reducing the nutrients and sediment reaching our waterways.  

The County has contracted with Bayland Consultants & Designers, Inc., a consulting engineering firm, to perform the design.  Baylands, who completed an assessment for the Foster Branch Watershed and has been involved with the Foster Branch dredging, was specifically selected for this design because of their experience and familiarity with the community.

The materials discussed at the meeting are listed below.  They will be available for review and comment through December 15, 2017 by completing the form below.

If you would like to receive additional information as the design progresses but have no comments at this time still complete the form below leaving the comments section blank.  Or if you prefer, feel free to contact Christine Buckley at (410) 638-3217 extension 1176 or via email at cmbuckley@harfordcountymd.gov
